What is most valuable?

Live monitoring of what is happening inside and with the interfaces, either ingress or egress - this is a good feature of the device. Secondly, most people use enterprise applications remotely, and… more»

How has it helped my organization?

I'm a network and cyber security consultant. This is not only for my offices, I have deployed it for many large enterprises where customers are remotely accessing their applications. We can define… more»

What needs improvement?

It's a little bit complex in terms of handling. If you implement a change, there is a specific point where you have to commit it. It's not like you just push a button and it's always committed. If you… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing and licensing are fine. It's worth the value because if I buy any other product, every four years I have to replace my hardware. But with Barracuda I get a free hardware upgrade. Today I'm… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I have used Cisco, Fortinet, Check Point, Palo Alto, Sophos Cyberoam, Dell SonicWall, and Juniper (both SRX and NetScreen). One of the reasons I switched to Barracuda is that I was looking for… more»

What other advice do I have?

When I initially started using it I was just an end-user, a technical consultant. And one of my customers said to me, "I want these and these features." I searched a number of products with respect to… more»

What is most valuable?

All the visibility the device gives us as well as management and administration facilities.

How has it helped my organization?

As a reseller, because Cisco includes different companies like Sourcefire, Meraki, and Talos, I think Cisco has a good portfolio for the security business, with their own… more»

What needs improvement?

It needs better documentation for when we present solutions to non-technical people. They need to bring together all the information, across the various firewalls, so that… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Cisco may be a little expensive but it has everything, and they support very well.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

SonicWall.

What other advice do I have?

I think Cisco has all the solutions: switching, routing, security, they have wireless. You can cover all the devices with Cisco. They have all the network and engineered… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the flexibility and level of security that this solution provides.

How has it helped my organization?

Instead of using multiple firewalls, we only need to rely on this solution. It has a small footprint.

What needs improvement?

There was an error in the configuration, related to our uplink switches, that caused us to contact technical support, and it took a very long time to resolve the issue. Some of the features should be… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We previously used an ASA 5500, and it was simply time to upgrade it. We used this solution as a direct replacement.

What other advice do I have?

This is a very straightforward firewall. There is a management platform with its own operating system. Just make sure that everything is set up properly for your uplink switches because that is an… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We are not restricted to any one vendor, but this solution worked well as a direct replacement for our previous one. We considered both Juniper and FortiGate.

What is most valuable?

All of the features in this solution are effective and efficient. They are dependent on the environment in the organization.

What needs improvement?

The policies and the way that they are applied can be improved. It could be more direct, as it is an issue for some people. Generally, policy management could be made better and simpler to deploy. The GUI could be improved to make it more usable, easier to administer, and easier to configure.

What other advice do I have?

For my requirements and expectations, I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
