Deploying and Provisioning the Barracuda Web Application Firewall on Microsoft Azure

This guide walks you through the steps to deploy and provision the Barracuda Web Application Firewall on Microsoft Azure.


The Barracuda Web Application Firewall on Microsoft Azure supports ONLY One-Arm Proxy mode deployment. For more information, see Configuring One-Arm Proxy Mode.

  1. Log into the Microsoft Azure Portal.
  2. Click Marketplace at the bottom of the screen.

    2. Enter a username in the USER NAME field . This entry is not used by the Barracuda Web Application Firewall.
    3. Under Authentication Type, choose SSH Public Key or Password based on your selection. Note that this entry will not be used by the Barracuda Web Application Firewall.
    4. Select the PRICING TIER based on your requirement.
    5. In the OPTIONAL CONFIGURATION section, do the following:
      1. AVAILABILITY SET - Configure as per your requirement.
      2. NETWORK - Configure the network in which you want to deploy the Barracuda Web Application Firewall. Ensure it is in the same network as your web servers.
      3. STORAGE ACCOUNT - Select an existing storage account or create a storage account
      4. ENDPOINTS - By default, port 8000 (TCP) and port 443 (TCP) will be opened as endpoint to access the web interface of the Barracuda Web Application Firewall.  Configure additional endpoints which you want to use for creating services on the Barracuda Web Application Firewall..
      5. EXTENSIONS - Do not add any extension, as the Barracuda Web Application Firewall does not support extensions.
    6. Select a group in RESOURCE GROUP.
    7. Choose the subscription for the instance and click Create.

After clicking Buy, Microsoft Azure begins provisioning the Barracuda Web Application Firewall. You can check the status of the provisioned Barracuda Web Application Firewall from the Microsoft Azure Portal. Allow a few minutes before taking any further actions in the Portal. During this time, the Microsoft Azure Linux Agent and Barracuda Web Application Firewall image boots up.

Make sure you do not restart the Barracuda Web Application Firewall while it is provisioning.
