Pros
"Scalability is good; the company wants to be able to handle large customers.""Their GPS possibilities and the security that it has, especially the SD-WAN functionality, is very good.""The interface is very user-friendly and it is quite easy to use.""What I like best about this product are the support and the features.""Ability to manage multiple firewalls.""Good identity fire walling, malware protection and application control features.""Its stability and SD-WAN features are the most valuable.""Its ability to block incoming attacks is valuable.

Cons
"If you experience an attack it can take a very long time to find a solution.""If you have another brand of VPN where you have to put an SSL VPN between two devices, Barracuda doesn't support that at a certain point. You can't actually build the VPN between Barracuda and a different device of a different brand.""Technical support used to be at a very high level but it is now a bit less so.""The interface should be more user-friendly and it should be easier to configure.""Command line could be more user friendly.""The analytics are weak.""The administration UI could be better. It should also have better application detection policies.""The biggest issue that I have with this solution is that it is not super intuitive. Once you know what to do, things make sense, but you can't just open the program and start doing things. It would be great if there was a little bit more guided usage inside the program."

"Its pricing is the main issue. The pricing could be improved. I would like to see an outbound policy based on the application. It is a very good feature, and most of the customers are looking for that. They can also include stronger firewall features. This would help the customers in choosing this product as the only device for the SD network.""Their hardware support isn't the greatest. We've had one unit go down, and it took a while for them to replace it. It was in the Caribbeans, so it might be a location-related issue."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The solution costs more than 800 Euros to purchase an F18, which is an entry model, and then another 500 Euros for instant replacement, and 500 Euros for energized updates. The total package would be around 1,900 Euros for five years license and all updates for an entry model.""The 600 series is about USD $10,000 a year and the 80 is USD $400 a year.""Its licensing is on a yearly basis. There is an upfront purchase price, and there is also an annual maintenance fee. There are no additional fees."
