AppGate SDP

I would recommend AppGate SDP to anyone that has fairly clear cut use cases for systems with user access with less than 5K resources per user. We found it works well in those cases and fully as advertised. The application can easily hide applications and resources from unauthorized access and is a reliable tool in your ZeroTrust arsenal.

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall

I would say a small business with a basic firewall and security needs would be a perfect fit for the Barracuda CloudGen firewall. I know that they soon end up leaving the NG models and are moving forward with the F series firewall. I think the F series is a much more difficult to manage device and doesn’t offer simplistic configuration or use and lacks cloud control so I don’t understand the move on Barracuda’s part to nix a great easy to manage the firewall. I do think that the NG line is maybe too simple for bigger businesses and would lack some main features that they would require.

Pros

AppGate SDP

  • Software-Defined perimeter
  • Hide resources to non-authorized/authenticated users.

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall

  • The management software is excellent. It make it much easier to manage the firewalls than some of the other vendors.
  • Watching real-time traffic is easy to do when trying to troubleshoot a users issues getting to a particular service.
  • Support from Barracuda has been excellent. We rate their phone and online remote support as being the best in the business.
  • We like the QoS and Traffic shaping of the NG Firewalls. They help is manage our limited bandwidth, so that business critical resources are available over lesser critical resources.
  • Integration with Active Directory makes it easy to identify users activities in logs.

Cons

AppGate SDP

  • Scalability - If there are too many resources per user, the solution cannot be utilized (upwards of 5K per user).
  • It could be more dynamic, like how it stores user ACLs.

  • Not come across any yet! A nice-to-have could be a mobile app which allows you to monitor it on your phone or mobile device.

Easy enough to use and configure using the management UI. Reporting from the web filter is a little clunky, and not very user friendly. To be perfectly honest, once it's set up and running, there isn't a lot to do from the day-to-day side of things, which is not a bad thing.

The company has been supportive overall of our needs and desired features. I have not personally called the support services, but I've heard no direct complaints either.

I could go on and on about how good Barracuda's support really is. I have yet to have a problem they didn't help me fix and I always learn something when talking with them. The story that best describes my overall experience with Barracuda's support is this: When I first put in the xSeries they had a problem with a policy route. There was a bug in the code and in the one situation I was it, it just would not work. I went up the levels of support and they couldn't fix it. Well, next thing I know I am on the phone with 2 of the guys that programmed the thing and they work out the solution in no time and get me going. That is support. That is what I have come to expect from Barracuda. If the tech on the phone doesn't know the answer, they do not stop until they find it. Grant it, I also have to admit I do not call support with every problem, I try to work it out on my own first as that is how I learn best, so when I do call support it is going to be complicated.

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall

Our Cisco firewall was always difficult to make any changes against. It had no user-friendly GUI interface. We were calling technical support most of the time whenever we needed to make any changes. The Barracuda CloudGen Firewall has a GUI interface which we are looking forward to getting better acquainted with as we move off of our old Cisco. Of course, Barracuda's technical support is always there and is top notch!

Return on Investment

AppGate SDP

  • We are achieving our goals with this tool by hiding resources behind it.
  • It is a new model that requires a different thought process for many in network operations.

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall

  • Positive: highly customizable and can control the entire network from one location.
  • Positive: all services and processes work very well and are reliable.
  • Positive: MSPs looking to deploy and control numerous firewalls with ease, this is hands down the best product.
  • Negative: very high learning curve, definitely not a one-and-done firewall. Requires a lot of dedicated time to get the machine running the way you want.
