Barracuda Web Application Firewall

Best Suited for Customer Environments with O365 Setup - Would recommend it for small, medium, or even large-sized organizations. Need to make some adjustments if you have an automated email setup for some apps.

I recommend it as a WAF, but not as a CDN. There are better CDNs, in my case I use transparentCDN (now www.transparentedge.eu) and Edgecast (now Verizon CDN).

Cons

Barracuda Web Application Firewall

  • Learning curve to implement
  • If using SD-WAN, multiple devices required

  • CDN functionalities are secondary and cannot be compared to a top-level CDN.
  • The WebGUI interface of the dashboard is very improvable. They have been changing the UX for years and it is disjointed and with services that have not yet been migrated.
  • The analysis of WAF attack logs is insufficient. It is difficult to analyze attacks of past hours, event filters are missing. It is complicated to analyze the chronology of an attack.
  • There are extra modules to improve the attack logs analysis but they are expensive and add little.

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.
