We are pleased to announce that Incapsula is now available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. For the last several years, Incapsula has been protecting Azure customers with a Gartner Magic Quadrant-leading web application firewall (WAF), Forrester Wave-leading DDoS mitigation, and intelligent bot protection for any website or application in a pure or hybrid Azure environment.

In addition to protecting websites from attacks, hacking attempts, network- and application-layer DDoS attacks, the Incapsula network filters out malicious traffic before it reaches Azure through advanced client classification and bot protection.
