We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"The most valuable feature for one of our customers is the ability to stage cloud workloads from the local network."
"The most valuable feature is the Dynamic Multipath Optimization (DMPO), which allows the customer to maintain and monitor their link quality in real-time."
"Proactively detects where problems might arise."
"The most valuable feature is load balancing."
"They make use of a combination of different internet lines, which improves quality."
"The most valuable feature is the dynamic multipath optimization."
"The biggest feature is called D.M.P.O., or Dynamic Multipath Optimization, which is one of the technologies that they use to deliver or ensure data integrity."
"They have a lot of built-ins. There are so many applications defined inside the solution. It makes it so that we don't have to create some policies. Each and every application is already defined in it."
"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."
"Technical support is in need of improvement."
"VeloCloud needs improvement in terms of its security features."
"Reports could be simplified."
"The cost of VeloCloud could be lowered."
"There is room for improvement with respect to security."
"There is no security included, which is something that should be improved."
"They need more gateways"
"The solution doesn't offer failover between their own devices. If I want to, I should be able to put the two devices at the side, so there can be a failover."
"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."
"VeloCloud performs as well as the Cisco SD-WAN but it is cheaper in price."
"The price of this solution is higher than that of other SD-WAN vendors."
"The price of this solution should be lower."
"The pricing is very comparable to Fortinet."
"The price is reasonable for this solution, but the only challenge for us is that the Rand currency fluctuates to the dollar and provides some complexities. The price might go up just because the Rand has actually lost value."
"The cost of VMware SD-WAN is high, but I think you can still get better pricing if your volume is high."
"The price of the solution could be reduced."
"My understanding is that the pricing is in the same range as other solutions."
Barracuda's Cloud Generation Firewalls redefine the role of the Firewall from a perimeter security solution to a distributed network optimization solution that scales across any number of locations and applications, connects on-premises and cloud infrastructures, and helps organizations transform their business.
Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is the application of softwarebased network technologies that virtualize WAN connections to provide agility,
performance and reliability for network traffic between remote and branch offices to
data centers and the cloud.
SD-WAN leverages cloud-hosting to simplify deployment and management of
network devices and employs traffic steering to applications in the data center and
the cloud. It combines the bandwidth of broadband with existing WAN connections to
more efficiently and cost-effectively connect users to data center and cloud-based
applications from any location in the network.
SD-WAN optimizes traffic over multiple available connections (MPLS, broadband,
LTE) to deliver traffic across the network, delivering a better user experience to any
location. SD-WAN will dynamically steer traffic to the best available link, and if the
available links show any transmission issues, it will immediately apply remediation for
jitter and packet loss based on policies to ensure performance of the high-priority
