Benefits of a Layered Defense
Stopping advanced threats from reaching your users and data requires a layered defense. In a 2016 independent test conducted by MRG Effitas and AV-Comparatives, the Barracuda NextGen Firewall, with Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection technology enabled, was the only solution tested to achieve 100-percent effectiveness, along with a zero-percent rate of false positives.
Barracuda’s multi-layer defense pre-filters possible threats by using increasingly sophisticated analysis, to optimize efficiency and ensure rapid response to any type of attack without compromising network performance or security policies.
Global Threat Intelligence Network
Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection leverages a global threat intelligence network that ingests vast amounts of diverse threat information from more than fifty million collection points around the world. These include more than 250,000 deployed Barracuda endpoints; honeypots, or decoys intended to attract the attention of threat actors and criminals; autonomous crawlers, bots that travel the internet actively seeking out new threats; third-party malware submissions; and analysis by Barracuda Labs.
All this information comes together to create the most up-to-date possible view of the threat environment. This is shared in real time with all Barracuda deployments with Advanced Threat Protection enabled—giving you the best protection against advanced threats in the industry.
