Barracuda Web Application Firewall Valuable Features

Igor-Bashtovyi
Security Engineer at a tech services company
I think the biggest value comes from the ability of Web Application Firewall to perform analysis of attacks that are registered by it, as well as its ability to analyze source code of those attacks and all traffic that is captured by Web Application Firewall. The basic functionality of the Web Application Firewall is pretty good. Therefore in comparison with CloudFlare, Barracuda has significant powerful instruments for analysis of main traffic of requests that we get on the application. If however, we try to compare Barracuda and F5, F5 is more powerful than Barracuda. In any case, it's very hard to make these comparisons, because one product has more powerful features from one point of view, while the other product is better from another point of view. I can say that it's good only in comparison with some products. All products have approximately the same functionality, but some products are more powerful in certain aspects. View full review »

One of the best aspects of the solution is the support provided. Their backend support is fantastic. I've found it's superior to other products, including Cisco. The way the support team treats its customers is great. They really walk you through everything and show you how easy it is to mend issues. I find the solution to be easy to deploy. You don't need too much technical skill, so you don't need an expert level of understanding. View full review »
