What is most valuable?

* It is easy to use. * It actually works really well. * Barracuda is very prompt at blocking any new spam which comes out.

How has it helped my organization?

If we didn't have it, then we would be spammed constantly. It has cut down the amount of emails that get through to our end users.

What needs improvement?

To start working with spam, it takes a while because the product has to see that multiple emails are coming in with all the spam. If it could reduce that amount of time, then we... more»

What other advice do I have?

Give Barracuda a try because it has been successful in my experience. The product is foolproof. It has done everything that we have needed with the amount of email that we receive,... more»

What other advice do I have?

Much quicker deployment, ease of troubleshooting and better cost compared to our previous solution.

Pricing is good. Licensing is pretty much automatic if using Control Center.

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

Purchasing through AWS Marketplace was good. We did it because it was easy. It would be nice if the pricing and licensing offered for less.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend to check out this product. We have used other versions besides AWS, and we are still comparing them.

What do you think of Barracuda CloudGen Firewall?

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...
