Barracuda Web Application Firewall

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

SonicWall WAF Series

SonicWall Web Application Firewall is appropriate to stay on the edge of our network and inspect all data that comes and goes in order to preserve the health of the network. In these scenarios, we are protected from DoS and DDoS attacks, malware threats, ransomware attacks, data theft, and others. Sonicwall's web application and threat management is intelligent and interrogates the behavior, communication logic, and, in addition, any changes and anomalies in the protocol.

Technical support is a little expensive but it works. Any technical problem or not, SonicWall support helps in solving the problems. The SLA is fast and the service is also cordial, functional, and straight to the point. Support is essential to keep the tool always up-to-date with lists of malware, URLs, attacks, and others.

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).
