Barracuda Web Application Firewall Scalability

Igor-Bashtovyi
Security Engineer at a tech services company
I read that you can scale this system by building redundant schemes and using special appliances to manage certificates, but I didn't try it. Therefore, as a manager I don't know, because I didn't try to make a redundant scheme. Only a few users at our company implement this, but all visitors to our site are affected by this implementation. View full review »

Scalability with the solution is good. It just requires more licenses, like every other product. If you only apply for the environment, it's scalable with the licenses you have. If you're on the physical appliance, you just have to scale it up by pressing the appliance. It probably won't be just deployed on Azure, because we would need to add more licenses. We've been adding to our system for a while ago, and we haven't run into any issues with continuing to scale. View full review »

This physical appliance is not a solution that scales because once I use it at capacity, I have to buy a new one. The virtual appliance is scalable because if I am at capacity then I can increase my license to another plan. For the WAF, capacity is not a function of the number of users. Rather, it is based on the servers that it is protecting. Two of my current clients and one hundred and fifty, and two hundred and fifty users, respectively. View full review »

The appliance can grow only in the stack, but it's not an upgradable design, it is a closed appliance. It is unadjustable in performance, in growing or increasing. View full review »

I have not tested out the scalability. The software is running 24/7. View full review »

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. View full review »
