What I like best about the Barracuda Web Application Firewall is the ease of configuration and use of the software. 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 out services within our Cloud Solution.
What do you dislike?
What I dislike about the Barracuda Web Application Firewall is reporting seems to be lacking on the firewall, but this could be just that I haven't dove into it very deep. And it seems to have trouble with FTP control. Again could be the way i am configuring it. The initial setup is a little tough. but if you have used a Web Application Firewall before this might not be an issue.
