Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""I find the solution very stable.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the simplicity of configuration.""The most valuable feature is the automatic 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 features are the client VPN and content filtering.""You don't need help from Barracuda to help with the deployment. The deployment is easy.""The stability of the solution is good. I don't think we've experienced bugs, crashes, or glitches."

"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.""The simplicity of the solution and its ability to integrate easily with others are its most valuable aspects.""This is a SaaS product, so it is always up to date.""Good customization; able to report and take action on alerts.""The solution was very easy to configure. It wasn't hard at all to adjust it to our needs.""Load balancing and web application firewall features are the most valuable.""WAF feature replicates the firewall.""The pricing is quite good."

Cons
"I would like to see better controlling of the traffic.""The solution could use more reports.""I would like to see an improved capacity to store logs so that they will be available for a longer time.""The usability of the interface could 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 incident reporting needs to be improved.""They could improve their performance, support, and their upgrades. Their updates used to be good. Their improvements were right on the money but nowadays, the updates are minor.""The reporting aspect of the solution needs improvement. I don't find that it's very good. They could do some work on it to make it much better. It's not that the reporting isn't secure. It's just that I would prefer to store my reports for an extended period of time. Right now, that's not possible and I'd prefer it if that could change. I also would say that the reports themselves are expensive."

"The pricing of the solution is a bit high. The solution should offer different pricing systems.""The pricing of the solution could be improved. Right now, it's a bit expensive.""For the first-time user, it is difficult to understand so the user-interface needs to be improved.""Needs easier integration with the existing SIAM.""The security of the product could be adjusted.""It does not have the flexibility for using public IPs in version 2.""Scalability can be an issue.""The monitoring on the solution could be better."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Our licensing fees are paid annually and the cost is between €600 and €800 (approximately $665.00 to $885.00 USD).""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.""The price of this solution is okay."
