Pros
The most valuable features are the client VPN and content filtering.It's very simple and predictable, because Barracuda provides a vision of the current state of your application. It gives you an understanding of what is happening on your site and any attempts against you at your source. This is the main value that Web Application Firewall provides our company. These aspects are also the main reason for this documentation process.The most valuable feature is the automatic content filtering.The most valuable feature of this solution is the simplicity of configuration.I find the solution very stable.The volumetric DDoS defense is very good because I had a problem with a lot of volumetric DDoS attacks on my servers. After using Barracuda, those attacks have stopped and all the traffic is going smoothly to my servers and the system is working really well.The updating and signature features are my primary use case for the solution. These features are beneficial to my organization.It allows us to scale out to multiple phase servers.

We chose this solution in the first place because it has access to Layer 7. I can control the requests and the content, which I can access on my network if I want to even if it's forbidden access to other external resources. If I want to monitor, for example, traffic, and apply this rule on Layer 7, I can do so. This was our main goal when implementing this application. We wanted to take advantage of the Gateway capabilities.

Cons
The incident reporting needs to be improved.I think the main area for improvement in this product is learning it, as can be seen when comparing it to the F5 web application firewall. F5 has a very powerful learning phase when you start using your web application firewall against your site. Barracuda has something like this, but not with the same functionality from my point of view.The usability of the interface could be improved.I would like to see an improved capacity to store logs so that they will be available for a longer time.The solution could use more reports.I would like to see better controlling of the traffic.I would suggest that someone implementing this product is knowledgeable in the IT field, and with the network needs. It is complex.If you know nothing about networks, then you can't set it up.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The price of this solution is okay.Barracuda costs us $8,000 per year. Barracuda costs $20,000 for a full subscription, when you try to protect multi-site infrastructure, in different geographical zones and for different data centers. If you have only one site, Barracuda will be cheaper.Our licensing fees are paid annually and the cost is between €600 and €800 (approximately $665.00 to $885.00 USD).They have competitive pricing.The pricing is less compared to other web applications.
