Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

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. Its logging, traffic monitoring, and VPN capabilities are also valuable."

"First and foremost, it enables the customer to deploy high availability connections. This kind of solution enables them to deploy these HA connections for policies mostly automatically. It's a more automated approach than with other vendors.""We had several clients that were paying $7,500 a month for an MPLS line for one single 10 megabit circuit and we were able to take that from $7,500 a month down to $500 a month for two 10 megabits circuits that added redundancy where before they did not have redundancy and it gave them a much better throughput.""The most valuable feature is the support for asymmetric lines."

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."

"They have to implement more security with it. The security, mainly their firewall functions, have to be included in the firewall features.""Their WAN optimization in terms of wireless connectivity doesn't have a very good cellular capability.""The security can be improved, with the firewall for example, because they supply a basic one but not a UTM."

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."

"You typically will license the hardware and you license the software to access the hardware capabilities. The price will range anywhere from a hundred to $300 a month. There are no additional costs.""The licensing fees depend on the bandwidth. As an example of what we charge our customers, for 100MB without Boost, the price is approximately $2,000. That includes the licensing and the unit."
