LOOPHOLD Security Distribution, a distributor of Barracuda Networks in Southern Africa, has announced that Barracuda Networks has won SearchSecurity’s Readers’ Choice Bronze Award for Best of Web Application Firewalls 2012.

SearchSecurity Readers’ Choice Awards are presented to vendors who garner the most votes from end-users, representing one of the strongest endorsements by IT professionals.

“This accolade further confirms our commitment to provide our customers with proven solutions from Barracuda Networks. Any organisation looking to implement a Web Application Firewall (WAF) product should consider Barracuda Networks, particularly financial services companies that are required to deploy WAF technology as part of their PCI DSS initiatives,” says Martin Tassev, MD at LOOPHOLD.

For this annual award, readers vote on the best Web Application Firewall products, including standalone WAFs and products that are part of application acceleration and delivery systems. The Barracuda WAF won the bronze, “garnering a strong rating for its ability to block intrusions, attacks and unauthorised network traffic.” A scalable enterprise security solution that is easy to deploy and manage, the Barracuda WAF was praised for providing “administrators with the ability to enforce granular user application access policies.”
