Barracuda Web Security Gateway

For a larger organization, this is a must. It provides insight into what the users are doing online and most malicious sites will no longer be accessible if access is denied. This can also give access to non-work related sites, but in a limited capacity, based on user or time of day. Though a smaller company would benefit from the features, it may be cost prohibitive.

  • Very stable and cost-effective.
  • Better integration with leading database vendors would be great; this would address features that are missing like x-windows support and concurrent secure file transfers.
  • Patching is relatively fast and not as frequent as other vendors (with no impact on adherence to security best practices).
  • Very easy to install and low storage footprint.

Pros

Barracuda Web Security Gateway

  • Control of domains/sites allowed for access. We can be sure our users are not using their online activity to accidentally, or intentionally, to go to malicious, threatening, intolerance, hate, or pornography.
  • Reporting is easy and informative. Reports allow you to summarize for specific time periods, and then drill down to see time spent, or bandwidth used.
  • Blocking and/or allowing instantly for a specific user or groups is easily done and takes effect immediately.
Jay Glatt | TrustRadius Reviewer

F-Secure Business Suite

  • Most up to date secure/encryption technology.
  • Very fast to set up and maintain.
  • Supported by all major hardware platforms (Microsoft, Linux).

Cons

Barracuda Web Security Gateway

  • More configuration in the reporting options would be helpful; there are a number of reports available to run, however more options for customisation would be useful.
  • The ability to add a list of domains/URL patterns to whitelist or block would be beneficial; while you can do a bulk edit, you can't just copy and paste the URLs in, you have to modify the line of text so that it matches the format, and adds it to the list. The ability to just import a list of addresses would be a huge time saver.

F-Secure Business Suite

  • X-windows support could be more robust.
  • Virtual shell adaptation could be improved.
  • Greater concurrency for large secure transmissions would be a great add-on.

There are a lot of settings you can adjust. The web log is easy to use. If a user is having issues accessing a website, you can go in and see what's being blocked and why. After that, you can make adjustments fairly easy. The GUI is easy to navigate and updating the software is a simple click of a button.

Barracuda support is always available, 24/7. They are always friendly, supportive, and follow-up with anything they promise. Any ticket that is opened is touched constantly by the support team until it is remedied

  • Support organization is active, so is online community boards.
  • There have been no significant issues that haven't been able to be quickly addressed by either online documentation or F-Secure support.
  • Easy to use diagnostic tools and information gathering, make problem analysis fast.
  • Phone support can be different due to time zone differences, but this has not been a major issue.

Alternatives Considered

Barracuda Web Security Gateway

SonicWall, Barracuda NG Firewall, and WatchGuard provides Content Filtering, but are primarily firewalls with Content Filtering features. The Web Filter is a dedicated appliance with more storage space and better reporting of users.

F-Secure Business Suite

  • This suite of software does not have any mentionable competition, in my opinion.
  • It adheres to current security protocols, in-frequent patching requirements, low IT overhead, and on-going support are exemplary.
  • Robust documentation and online community boards help keep support and maintenance transparent and efficient.
  • Legacy support for older OS' is quite useful.
  • Simplicity when onboarding into custom hybrid network configurations is also vital.

Return on Investment

Barracuda Web Security Gateway

  • I came into the company with Barracuda already implemented so it worked well for a number of years.
  • Their support contract was a bit pricey.
  • For what the company paid for the system, Barracuda was worth the money over the 10 years it was implemented.

F-Secure Business Suite

  • Very low cost.
  • Low IT overhead (very low network bandwidth, CPU, storage utilization).
  • Supported by all major hardware vendors.
