We use Barracuda to protect against emerging threats.
  • Web application security.
  • Blocks emails that could be spam.
  • Blocks websites we don't people on here at the school district.
  • Reports could be somewhat confusing.
  • The initial setup was a little difficult for our Security Admin team.
It could really help a smaller business keep users off websites you don't want them on.

Barracuda WAF Review

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Review Source
We are a reseller of Barracuda products. Therefore we sell and implement it at our clients' sites. These appliances are available as a physical or a virtual instance. For companies that are hosting applications/databases in the cloud, this is a must.They provide security as well as bandwidth "conditioning" for the users and the company data. A huge selling factor is that the appliance provides SD-WAN without the overhead cost that you would incur if being provided through the ISP.
  • SD-WAN
  • Traffic conditioning
  • Reasonable cost
  • Learning curve to implement
  • If using SD-WAN, multiple devices required
If you have a database in AWS or Azure with a lot of transactions, SD-WAN is a must. This appliance provides the needed feature at a fraction of the cost of going through an ISP. If you do not have lots of application "transactions" an F series firewall would be more appropriate (and also less expensive).
