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.

Appropriate for SAP hrs hierarchy integration and can have multiple hierarchies of org structures adopted as alternative workflow support. Cons of access control are the logs of firefighter usage are still limited in depth and does not evolve to adop more cloud products which are coming at a plaster pace than the ac product as such.

Pros
Barracuda Networks, Inc.
  • 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.

  • SAP Access Control ensures that our services are accessed by the right users since it send me alerts when an employee tries to access any application. That way, I am able to either authorize or cancel the request to safeguard of company data.
  • With SAP Access Control, it is easy to automate and monitor how our team access services and applications. SAP Access Control has an automatic feature that notifies me when employees access applications and services and the issues they are encountering.
  • In addition, SAP Access Control add security on employees login to ensure that their data on the applications are encrypted to never leak to cyber attackers.

Cons
Barracuda Networks, Inc.
  • Very complex and steep learning curve to get up to speed.
  • Multiple ways to configure for the same service or feature. Takes time to determine "your" customized build.
  • Interface can sometimes be clunky when trying to determine how it's organized or arranged. Again, steep learning curve.

  • It still uses the webdynpro for the front end. All webdynpro applications should be migrated to Fiori for a better user experience.
  • Some functionalities can't manage in mass way. I.E. building derive roles/multiple single roles,
  • Interface with LDAP is not efficient.

Usability
Barracuda Networks, Inc.
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.

This is a great tool for a medium to large sized company. SAP Access Control requires a great deal of SAP knowledge to use, but it is certainly information that can be learned. Their customer support is wonderful and easy to work with. The overall usability is great. I greatly recommend this software.

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.

This product fulfills all our requirements. We can use this for user management, role management, risk analysis, business role management, workflow management. Initial configuration takes a lot of effort. Otherwise it's a great product for the end user. SAP Access Control tool performance needs improvement, sometimes it slows down the processing time for requests.

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!

Pricing was higher for the cloud version of the BTP service - IAG. SAP Access Control pretty much facilitates everything we are looking for as an enterprise with an efficient dollar cost ROI for the services we are looking for. Also, there were many features on the cloud version which came bundled with the license and we had to pay for them even though we did not actually use these products.

Return on Investment
Barracuda Networks, Inc.
  • We saved multiple thousands of dollars the first year out with the firewall in maintenance fees. We paid for the firewall and 3 years of service and still saved money.
  • The ease of management allows me to do my job more efficiently. I save a lot of time when doing my day to day job because I can get to my firewall virtually anywhere.
  • I feel a lot safer and my business more secure knowing that I have configured things the way they need to be and it was simple and not overly complicated.

  • Reducing risk of fraud. Implementing SAP Access Control allows analysis of every role assigned to a job on the organization. Through this analysis, weakness on roles are detected, corrected and monitored. As the users feel the change, they also feel that they are being monitored, preventing any intent to use his position and privileges to take personal advantage. So a major impact to organizations is to reduce the financial lost due to frauds.
  • Reducing cost for monitoring. Another positive impact is lowering the cost of monitoring. This is twofold: First, a rather small team can manage access management. Second, through the use of SAP Access Control the complete universe of roles and users can be monitored without increasing the cost for the continuous monitoring.
  • During transactions. The use of SAP Access Controls allows detection of transactions that, from an information security point of view, require some redesign. When SAP GCR is implemented, you make some discoveries such as: obsolete transactions, transactions with no authorization objects and the like. The transactions with these problems can be left out of the active roles, waiting for remediation of the issues found.
