What is most valuable?

Live monitoring of what is happening inside and with the interfaces, either ingress or egress - this is a good feature of the device. Secondly, most people use enterprise applications remotely, and… more»

How has it helped my organization?

I'm a network and cyber security consultant. This is not only for my offices, I have deployed it for many large enterprises where customers are remotely accessing their applications. We can define… more»

What needs improvement?

It's a little bit complex in terms of handling. If you implement a change, there is a specific point where you have to commit it. It's not like you just push a button and it's always committed. If you… more»

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

Pricing and licensing are fine. It's worth the value because if I buy any other product, every four years I have to replace my hardware. But with Barracuda I get a free hardware upgrade. Today I'm… more»

What is most valuable?

We've found the threat detection very valuable. The entire platform is user-friendly. It's easier compared to Check Point or Juniper firewalls.

How has it helped my organization?

For my organization, it has become much easier to scan the firewalls because the solution is more user-friendly than its competitors.

What needs improvement?

The signature discs, compared to Palo Alto, aren't as good. It takes more time to get the signature updates. The solution should be on the cloud a bit more. There should be a cookie eater.

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

Licensing is renewed on a yearly basis.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We ended up choosing the solution because of its ease of use and it troubleshooting steps were easy to control.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model. I would recommend the solution. As a co-firewall, it does a good job. I would rate the solution seven out of ten.
