It has been a best product for us as an MSP and also for our clients. Some of our clients used to get hit with phishing attempts 5 - 7 times a day and this has reduced that to almost 98%. The checks that it performs to analyse the emails is record breaking and will only allow emails to go through if they pass these check. Would highly recommend this product as a solution.
  • Email Filtering and Inspection
  • Web-based intrusions and attacks
  • Traffic Patterns
  • More features in Web UI
  • Integrated Control
  • Allow user feedback before newer firmware versions
Best Suited for Customer Environments with O365 Setup - Would recommend it for small, medium, or even large-sized organizations. Need to make some adjustments if you have an automated email setup for some apps.

We block entire countries which is a balancing act as we are global, but with increased risks of brute force, attacks we us [for] the firewall [is] our first line of defense.
  • We can block entire countries.
  • Support is Awesome.
  • Setup is straightforward and adding licenses is easy.
  • Some ports are open by default which if not caught can leave us wide open for attacks.
After we were hit with a brute force attack, we [...] had to recover servers from backups. [So,] we used the firewall to block the county where the attack originated and closed additional ports.

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.
The Barracuda Web Application Firewall is easy to use. Support from Barracuda is great also. Load Balancing of the Web Application Firewall is also nice. This allows you to do maintenance or have large loads for the end-user. Threat monitoring of our network and traffic coming into our services within our cloud solution.

Barracuda WAF Review

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).
