Barracuda CloudGen Firewall F380

Overall Satisfaction with Barracuda CloudGen Firewall

Our nextgen Barracuda CloudGen Firewall F380 has been a key part of the company's protection and security. It was acquired about 2 years ago from a reseller and since then it has been our network edge defense. The appliance is complete and in addition to a firewall, it has other advanced protection features such as URL filtering, application control, VPN and anti-malware. We use a topology with 2 appliances in active-standby, the first one is the main one and the second one is for redundancy. With our scenario, the network is always very safe from attacks and vulnerabilities.

Pros

  • Increased level of network protection against threats.
  • Visibility and control of applications that users access.
  • URL Filtering to block unauthorized or prohibited websites on the internal corporate network.
  • Protection against diverse malware at the edge of the network.
  • Firewall redundancy with another backup appliance.

Cons

  • The url filtering and application control licenses are not perpetual and need to be renewed every year.
  • Firewall with deep packet inspection and built-in IPS.
  • Robust hardware that supports more than 80,000 simultaneous connections.
  • Web protection with URL Filtering functionality and application control.
  • VPN site to site and remote.
  • Offers protection against malware.
  • Prevents cyber attacks and optimizes network and user management.
  • The security has been improved and made more reliable.
