Barracuda CloudGen Firewall Review

Inbound and outbound traffic analysis is a key feature


What is our primary use case?

Barracuda X200 is the edge of our home system for VPN traffic. It provides IPsec to two other sites, including remote VPN access for users who are off the network.

What is most valuable?

  • Inbound and outbound traffic analysis
  • Rule creation wizard
  • GUI portal
  • Quality online support

What needs improvement?

The unit seems to be handling our 150MB pipe okay, but logger refresh leaves a bit to be desired.

A rule for email announcements, when configured hits occur, would be a great improvement for a more efficient experience.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We replaced an underperforming, continually locking Cisco RV130 unit. However, the two are not an "apples to apples" comparison.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
