What do you like best?

What I like most about Barracuda Firewalls is their adaptability in regards to the variety of ways they can protect a network from a threat, whether it be inside the network or targeting from some far corner of the world. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only downside, really, is manually configuring nearly every setting. That said, once you become well versed in how to navigate, set up and operate the firewall rules, objects and aspects of the network(s) you're running, that downside becomes a strength. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

We're currently working on implementing Barracuda Sentinel in the field, in conjunction with Barracuda Cloudgen Firewalls but there are so many other devices and applications in the Barracuda world. I encourage you to head over to www.barracuda.com and have a look at what they can offer. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've helped contain an infection of WannaCry Ransomware, configure firewall rules to allow a multitude of different programs or functions to work properly while still shielding the network from threats and given our customers the means to remotely connect to their networks and securely access their shared folder systems in a safe and convenient way. I'm sure there will be a great deal more I'll realize in the future. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It takes a while to get used to the tree structure. But with a robust system, comes some complexity. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to tailor it to be more precise than our previous firewall. Although it is very precise, it still has a lot of flexibility. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The support is the best part about the Barracuda Firewall's and any Barracuda product for that matter. We have a few of their products and their support is the best in the industry. They by far go above and beyond. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I would like to see a full blown web management interface on the product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Go to their website and sign up for a free personalized webinar. Let then set you up with and online demo unit. They will also send you a unit to try on your site. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has already caught quite a number of issues for us. The IPS has done a great job alerting us to when something suspicious is going on. This lets us be able to see things as they occur real time. It is also our means of controlling our bandwidth usage. We especially like the fact that we can shape traffic based on not just IP events, but also by applications using up all of our bandwidth.

What do you like best?

It keeps our network users from picking up a lot of viruses and malware.before they get on their workstations which pretty much then requires that system must be wiped and restored. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

A lot of our vendor's sites we must download firmware and much of them are blocked because they are in southeast Asia. It would be nice if there was a quick way to temporarily white-list a site or domain. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I like the Application awareness of the firewall. Really allows you to monitor what is going on and what users are doing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It takes a little time to afjust to the configuration interface. Because the firewall has many options and features the interface is complexer then other (not next gen) firewalls Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Take Your time to get used and get familier with the interface. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

If, I owned a business I would want to implement something like this. The main items my employer does not want employees to access are shut down entirely. It's amazing how they are able to ensure certain sites are not permitted. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is entirely frustrating to have to deal with cites you need to use or business use blocked by Barracuda. I see why an employer would wish to have this software in place however. It is also difficult to have a cite lifted from the ban. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Yes, it is clear our company has benefited from using this type of software. It has been good to see our team get better at managing their time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our company had a lot of difficulties in the past with users slacking off and not doing the required work during work hours. Now they are more focused because they have to be. We have also seen an increase in security and have been less prone to hacks. It has been good working with Barracuda to get this increased security. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Barracuda has an easy to use interface and configuration is not only very versatile, but very logical.

Weather you have a few users or an entire fleet, this option will keep you covered. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Basic setup is logical and easy, more custom and complicated setups require a higher than average knowledge of firewalls and network logistics. Not a big issue, but startups may be challenged if they do not have access to higher end resources Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do your homework, be sure that you know what you need, Barracuda is a great tool but not perfect for every application. Be sure to purchase the proper tool for you job and you will be happy with your purchase! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have used Barracuda to safeguard not only our network from intrusion but to limit our internal liability due to unauthorized "surfing". Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
