How to Choose the Right Barracuda Web Site Firewall for Your Network

The purpose of this article is to help you choose which Barracuda Web Site Firewall is best for your organization.

When determining which website firewall is appropriate for your organization, you will need to answer the following questions.

Do you have a public web application?
How many web servers or application servers do you need to protect?
Was your web application developed in house?
How much Web traffic (HTTP/HTTPS) will be routing through the appliance?
Are you looking for features, such as load balancing and SSL acceleration?

The following table should give you a good idea of what each of the Barracuda Web Site Firewall models has to offer.

Throughput (Mbps)2550100
Number of Servers1-55-1010-25
Web SecurityYYY
Granular RulesYYY
Load BalancingNYY
Hardware SSL AccelerationNNY
Content RoutingNYY
Authentication & AuthorizationNYY


If you need to load balance traffic then you will want to go with the model 460 or 660.
If you need SSL acceleration then you will want to go with the model 660.
If you have more than 100 Mbps of traffic that needs to pass through the same appliance then you should consider looking at the Web Application Controller.

If you have any further questions about the Barracuda Web Site Firewall, please feel free to contact me.
