Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Pros

  • 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
