Cons

Azure Application Gateway

  • The ease of setting up a connection to the on-premises sql server to any of the Azure cloud data solutions. One can easily stand up new virtual machines and then create a separate Application Gateway to work with each of the Azure solutions like Azure Data factory or Azure Machine Learning.
  • Also, we can schedule the jobs to be run at a particular time and also on-demand so we would always have the data whenever we will need it.

Barracuda Web Application Firewall

  • Reports could be somewhat confusing.
  • The initial setup was a little difficult for our Security Admin team.

I don’t like that it's part of the Microsoft brand. In general, I am not a fan of Microsoft products but Azure gets it right.

The Barracuda Web Application Firewall is easy to use. Support from Barracuda is great also. Load Balancing of the Web Application Firewall is also nice. This allows you to do maintenance or have large loads for the end-user. Threat monitoring of our network and traffic coming into our services within our cloud solution.

Alternatives Considered

Azure Application Gateway

Azure Application Gateway gives you application-level routing and load-balancing services that let you build a scalable and highly-available web front end in Azure.

Barracuda Web Application Firewall

We have used SonicWalls and WatchGuard firewall appliances neither are even remotely close to the Barracuda Web Application Firewall. In addition, Barracuda support is fantastic. Throw in the 4 year (free) refresh cycle and there is no reason we would even consider the other two again (at least for the foreseeable future).

Return on Investment

Azure Application Gateway

  • We are using Azure Application Gateway as the load balancing tool for our applications deployed on Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS) clusters.

Barracuda Web Application Firewall

  • Much better response times for remote transactions
  • 4 year refresh cycle included with active support contracts
  • More expensive than traditional firewalls (however its superior to those, not apples to apples)
