Barracuda CloudGen Firewall F280

Overall Satisfaction with Barracuda CloudGen Firewall (formerly NG Firewalls)

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.
  • We only use the CudaLaunch now and love it!!
  • I can't think of anything
  • It saved us during the pandemic
  • Good easy to use interface
  • We no longer have to call support every time we need to make a change - like on our Cisco firewall
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!

Would you buy Barracuda CloudGen Firewall (formerly NG Firewalls) again?

Yes

Since we have only implemented the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall a few months ago, we only started using the CudaLaunch VPN portion of the firewall. We had used several other VPN utilities, and they all had issues over time. Mostly with disconnecting the user. We have not had any issues with the Barracuda CGF CudaLaunch VPN at all in the months we have been using it. And believe me, with the pandemic, we have been using it heavily over the past months.

We will be moving our old Cisco firewall settings to the Barracuda CGF and coming off of the Cisco firewall completely in the near future.
