Barracuda Web Application Firewall Review

Simple to manage with a good client VPN and content filtering

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the client VPN and content filtering.

This solution is simple to manage.

The interface and the dashboards are ok.

What needs improvement?

The incident reporting needs to be improved.

The local technical support in Poland is not very reliable.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the Barracuda Web Application Firewall for three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is very stable. It is great.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have only the single web application firewall running on-premises, so I cannot comment on scalability other than to say that I haven't had any problems.

We have 18 people who are being protected by this firewall and we do have plans to increase to approximately 100.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have been in contact with technical support and while I feel that they are not very reliable here in Poland, they are good enough and I am satisfied with them. The escalation was okay and the troubleshooting was also okay.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price of this solution is okay.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is implementing this solution is to find a good partner to assist with the implementation.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?


Which version of this solution are you currently using?
