We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"The solution offers multiple security features. There are machine learning features and great URL encryption. It also offers multi-protocol support against DDoS attacks."
"Its recommendation about the probabilities on the website is great. It also has free probability managers for the website, which is really helpful. The protection engine, signature-based protection behavior, and analysis features are also great. It also has an ATP module for sandbox scanning and behavior analysis for file uploads."
"The initial setup is pretty straightforward, especially if you enlist assistance."
"We use Barracuda to protect the application. That's the main feature we use it for."
"The solution has been quite stable. It's reliable."
"The most valuable feature is that I can establish different services from the firewall."
"The most valuable feature is that there is a link in the system that will help to analyze the security of an application when something abnormal is found."
"WAF is useful to track mitigation, inclusion, prevention, and the parametric firewall."
"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 documentation is lacking. It's not like what you'd get if you were using Juniper or Cisco. They need to expand on it and make it more useful."
"Its interface can be better. It is not very friendly."
"We've had some blocks of the application and some false positives."
"Sometimes when we put it in action, we have some blogs that appear as false positives. I think that it's improving. Barracuda should minimize false positives."
"The solution needs to leverage some additional features to a broader scale of software-defined networks."
"The configuration needs to be more flexible because it is difficult to do things that are outside of the ordinary."
"Setting policies and parameters through the UI should be more automated because the process is manual, where we can only edit one rule at a time."
"It's challenging if you need to go for a high throughput."
"The price of this solution is okay."
"The price of the solution is a little expensive. There is a license for this solution and it can be purchased every one, two, or five years."
"While I would have to check on the price of the solution, I feel it to be okay and it matches the market price."
"The price is reasonable, more so than other products."
"The licensing fees for this solution are pretty expensive for what it does, but there is no alternative."
"Our licensing costs are about $40,000 a year."
