Barracuda Networks (Essentials and Web Security Gateway)

Gain comprehensive protection from malware, social media, rogue apps, and email threats

Inbound Filtering

Essentials for Email Security quickly filters every email before it arrives on your email server to protect it from malware, spam, phishing, and denial of service attacks.


Email Encryption and Spooling

Outgoing emails are routed through the Barracuda Message Center, which secures it using TLS and AES 256-bit encryption.

Protect Data from Escaping

Block outbound spam and viruses to prevent employees from infecting clients, and ensure private data (credit card numbers) are never sent via email.

Barracuda Essentials for Email Security

This cloud-based solution protects organizations with affordable and scalable multi-layer security and archiving for cloud-based productivity suites. For inbound email, Barracuda filters spam, malware, phishing and denial of service attacks so that they don’t ever strike a single employee’s inbox. Advanced Threat Detection detects potentially malicious URLs and ensures that if users click on them, they won’t be negatively affected by malware or viruses. Suspicious attachments are destroyed to protect users.

For outbound email, filtering can block users from sending malicious emails inadvertently to clients, which helps keep IP addresses and domains from being listed on spam block lists. Administrators can also enforce content policies to prevent sensitive data, like credit card numbers, social security numbers, HIPAA data, customer lists, and more from being sent by email.

Barracuda Web Security Gateway

As either a virtual or physical appliance installation, the Barracuda Web Security Gateway protects organizations from a number of potentially critical issues, such as malware, viruses, productivity loss, and misused bandwidth. By combining award-winning malware, spyware, and virus protection with a strong policy system for administrators, the Web Security Gateway gives maximum control and maximum productivity.

Administrators can control access to web sites, applications, and other based on users, groups, time, bandwidth, and more, and can even get visibility into SSL-based traffic. The Web Filter blocks user from downloading spyware or viruses, and can even prevent them from visiting websites containing threats based on proactive, intelligent worldwide analysis.

Both the virtual and the appliance installations can be managed through the cloud so that administrators can make critical changes on-the-fly.

Advanced Threat Detection

Barracuda’s Advanced Threat Detection (ATD) combines behavioral, heuristic, and sandboxing technologies to protect against zero hour and targeted attacks.

Malware Protection

This system uses the cloud to dynamically analyze new threats, sandbox potentially damaging attachment, and ensure that URLs in emails won’t sent users toward malware.

Anti-Spam Protection

The Barracuda Essentials for Email Security identifies email from known spammers and determines whether links in the email lead to known spam or malware domains. It also protects against the practice of embedding text inside imagines with the intent of hiding content from traditional spam filters.

Archiving, Compliance and eDiscovery

The Barracuda Cloud Archiving Service assists organizations with compliance and eDiscovery requests effectively and easily. For companies that need to maintain compliance with industry standards, this will allow them to retrieve email at any time, from any device, using a cloud-based archive.
