"Best next gen firewall"

What do you like best?

I like the Application awareness of the firewall. Really allows you to monitor what is going on and what users are doing.

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

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take Your time to get used and get familier with the interface.

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

We use it a lot for the antivirus and the atp (advanced threat protection). In time of cryptolockers, Securing internet access with ssl interception and antivirus and atp is really helpfull to protect Your users and computers

"Barracuda Firewall F400 in Higher Ed"

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.

What do you dislike?

I would like to see a full blown web management interface on the product.

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.

What business 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 Firewall solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Solid firewall"

What do you like best?

Definitely ease of use is what I like best. It has protected our company for years without any security issues.

What do you dislike?

None actually. Maybe a few minor issues navigating the GUI.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a great system that will handle all your spam filtering needs. Our Barracuda also uses the advanced licensing to scan and block email malicious attachments and links.

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

Benefits are saving us thousands by blocking potential threats.

"I have been a user of Barracuda Firewall. The only frustration I have is how good the software is! "

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.

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.

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.

What business 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.

"Great Firewall and Security Tool"

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.

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

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!

What business 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".

"Easy way to keep users mostly safe"

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.

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.

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

Computer viruses and malware

I would definitely try using this software over anything else on the market.

Definitely have a dedicated network guy at hand to get this up and going.

"Love Barracuda"

What do you like best?

It keeps spam out of my email. I don't like a cluttered email box and I love being about to block domains.

What do you dislike?

That we can't just push a button in Outlook any more. It is a pain to have to go to the Barracuda website to block emails.

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

Keeps my email uncluttered and lessens the chance I will click on a malevolent email link or download bad viruses.
