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

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

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall

  • 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.

SAP Access Control

  • SAP products in general are not user friendly. SAP Access Control is no exception to this. Even though the use of the Netweaver interface is a big improvement on user interaction, the presentation of big amounts of data could be improved (list of roles, information of values assigned to authorization object fields, and the like).
  • Regarding functionality on Access Control, the product is about complete; I cannot think of anything else to add to it.

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.

Alternatives Considered

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!

SAP Access Control

SAP Access Control provides end to end functionality. Designing and building of SAP roles, publishing the roles, ordering the access, and finally compliant user provisioning. While another solution has a dependency on SAP access control to ensure the compliant user provisioning. The only benefit of other solutions is that they can be used for non-SAP target systems as well. Further in SAP Access Control, the connection setup for new target application is very easy and fast.

Return on Investment

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.
