This product serves as both our primary edge firewalls as well as our SD-WAN concentrators and end-points. We occasionally use smaller Barracuda firewalls in mobile or field-office applications as well. We have used Barracuda for general-purpose student web filtering in the past.

Used mainly as a router and firewall in all of our stores globally to terminate all management VPN tunnels to the stores and within the same country to avoid problems with long-distance internet connections. The main problem we have dealt with was trying to make sure all the stores have enough bandwidth (at least 20up/20dn) so that the Barracuda can perform best.

We use the Cloudgen Firewall as an edge device for our retail stores. It is an effective solution that does not break the bank. Configuring a box can be more technical than other solutions but after doing a couple it becomes repetitive anyways. At that point it can be documented and easily followed.

As MVP this is being used for setups in Azure i demo / develop. The reason to use Barracuda in my opinion in Azure is because they truly try to leverage al the cloud native benefits and combine that with their proprietary product without sacrificing the benefits from both.

We bought the CloudGen to replace an aging Juniper firewall - to increase throughput, security, and flexibility. At the start of lockdown, we had plenty of people working from home - the built-in Client To Site VPN has been a godsend in terms of connecting remote workers.

We purchased the Barracuda CGF to replace our current Cisco Firewall. We have always suffered issues trying to manage the Cisco firewall. The Barracuda CGF is user friendly and much more intuitive. We started using the CudaLaunch to begin with, as a necessity from the ongoing pandemic. It saved us! Being that we are new (less than 6 months) on the Barracuda CGF, we have not yet moved all of our firewall settings over to it and implemented the firewall portion fully. We intend to do that soon.

Our Barracuda NextGen CloudGen firewall users being used to secure our companies main and backup internet connections. We also use it for the failover of our main internet to our backup. I replaced a WatchGuard firebox with this firewall because the cost of maintenance was high on the WatchGuard and the management of the Barracuda was much simpler and could be done without a locally installed client like with the WatchGuard. You can manage the Barracuda from anywhere with Barracuda cloud control even running firmware updates from your phone on all you Barracuda devices. It just makes my job so much easier.

It is our company-wide firewall and provides a back-up web filtering service to compliment an existing solution. It allows us to redirect traffic from outside of the physical building and provide a secure connection to a number of internally host web applications. It also provides a layer of security to our monitored CCTV solution.

We are a regional mental healthcare provider. As such, we have members of our staff that are mobile a good bit of their day. To that end, in addition to the standard firewall features that we utilize, this also serves as a VPN endpoint for our mobile staff. In addition to the C2S VPN, we also use the S2S VPN for smaller facilities that need access but we can't really justify anything more than an internet connection for. As an added bonus, we do utilize the advanced threat features to give us the first layer for virus/malware detection and prevention before the traffic ever gets to the AV software that is used on each workstation. Finally, we leverage the NGs IDS/IPS to make sure the only traffic that is on the network is what is supposed to be here.

We are a reseller of Barracuda products. Not only do we sell, implement, support etc. the appliances, but we also use them in our environment. Since installing these devices at our office (and close to 50 clients) the amount of malware infections has been reduced exponentially. They are a VERY cost effective, secure product and anytime we have needed support, they have been able to resolve our issues in a reasonable amount of time.
