Barracuda Web Application Firewall Review

Attacks have stopped and all of the traffic is going smoothly to my servers

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case is to protect from DDoS attacks and to protect my backend servers. That was the main concern for me. Barracuda has been very good. I'm very happy with the product.

How has it helped my organization?

Previously, attacks would make the systems go down and we couldn't connect with our customers and other things. We need our servers to be online 24-7 which is why I chose Barracuda. Now our servers are running smoothly and I have no problem running my servers.

What is most valuable?

The volumetric DDoS defense is very good because I had a problem with a lot of volumetric DDoS attacks on my servers. After using Barracuda, those attacks have stopped, all of the traffic is going smoothly to my servers and the system is working really well.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see better controlling of the traffic. 

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is very good. I would give it four and a half stars out of five.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. It was easy to deploy. It took six to seven hours of work a day to deploy every policy that I wanted. The initial setup went well, there weren't any issues with it. 

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a nine out of ten. The attacks that we used to get on servers are gone. My servers are now running 24-7 and I have no problems with them.
