Our only other vendor in this space is really in a different class, making it difficult to compare them directly head to head. Certainly, Barracuda is more fully-featured and FAR more flexible.

Our Cisco firewall was always difficult to make any changes against. It had no user-friendly GUI interface. We were calling technical support most of the time whenever we needed to make any changes. The Barracuda CloudGen Firewall has a GUI interface which we are looking forward to getting better acquainted with as we move off of our old Cisco. Of course, Barracuda's technical support is always there and is top notch!

We used a much alder Cisco ASA router that was chocking our bandwidth and it couldn’t really be compared. It was clunky and horrible at best. Our WatchGuard was overly complicated and difficult to manage and required a version matching thick client installed locally to manage the firewall. The Barracuda solved a bunch of issues from both of these devices and allows me to really save time and money with its easy to configure the interface and inexpensive yet quality device and interface allow me to feel like I am getting a great value for my security.

We already use Smoothwall for our main web filtering and felt it would be more robust to have a failover service in case of hardware failure. Pricewise the 2 were comparable and both would have been an upgrade on the no longer supported Microsoft Threat Management gateway. We had also considered a cloud-based system from our ISP, but find them difficult to contact with regards to support.

There really is no comparison. Juniper and Sonicwall are the closest competitors, however, in terms of features versus price Barracuda wins every time. Cisco does not allow the ASA to do certain things it should be allowed to do, it is design flaws but they have no intention of changing it. Fortinet - I don't even know where to start - the hardware is slow and pretty much does what it wants too, and the support has to be about the worst I have had the misfortune to have to deal with. All of these items are just not issues with Barracuda. It does a good job of doing what it is supposed too and the support is awesome.

Barracuda, much like the others, has a lot to learn in order to master for quick deployment and management. The biggest separation is the level of customization that is possible. Barracuda support definitely goes above and beyond over the competitors.

  • SonicWall and WatchGuard
We have used SonicWALL and WatchGuard appliances in the past. Barracuda is not only more feature rich, but less expensive. Barracuda's partner program is also second to none. We lost a lot of confidence with SonicWALL as ownership changing hands multiple times in the last few years has greatly impacted the development of the products. WatchGuard is very expensive in comparison to Barracuda as you need to purchase new hardware every couple years.
