Likelihood to Recommend

Barracuda Web Application Firewall

It could really help a smaller business keep users off websites you don't want them on.

These devices caused more problems for our company than benefits, I would never recommend these to colleagues.

Radware Alteon

  • The software web application is beyond terrible, in most of the cases the web was broken or did not have similar functionality the command line interface had.
  • The command line interface wasn't a natural looking interface, it was very fumbled and while it ran on Linux, the interface was all menus and sub-menus.
  • When enabling different pools for different web services, when a new pool was activated, the old pool connections were all reset instead of allowing HTTP sessions to naturally expire.

Barracuda Web Application Firewall 8.0
Based on 1 answer
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

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).

We moved away from Alteon to F5 BigIP LTM and just by swapping out the hardware, we saw 40% speed increase in our applications. Everything else is much improved as well, from the web interface to the command line to the API.

Return on Investment

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)

Radware Alteon

  • While running on these devices, every release caused many interruptions in service and caused thousands of dollars of lost revenue.
