THE COVID-19 CRISIS
We’ll help you through this challenging journey.
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted everyday life in nearly every country around the world. Barracuda shares your concern over the health and well-being of our families, communities, co-workers and businesses.
We are here to protect and support our customers for life, which means providing the best security solutions at the right time, no matter the challenge.
Secure your remote workforce.
Many companies are dealing with a new reality: a workforce that is almost completely working from home. These workers need access to applications and files that sit inside the enterprise network. Barracuda CloudGen Firewall (CGF) can ensure that your employees have what they need to securely access corporate resources. Barracuda offers multiple remote access options to provide the best user experience depending on the user’s device.
Barracuda CloudGen Firewall remote access applications are easy to deploy to users and adopt into a workflow.
Protect your business from risks created by distracted employee email behavior.
Many employees who are now working from home for the first time are facing a variety of distractions. This time of distraction creates a perfect storm for email scammers to attack.
There are several active COVID-19 scams that involve ransomware, phishing, and other types of attacks. The success of these attacks is based on the victim believing that the email is a legitimate status update from the company or from world health care leaders. Email attacks of this kind are more successful when employees are distracted, distressed, multitasking, and processing more email messages than normal.
Protect your data as new risks arise from remote work.
Moving your workforce out of the corporate office can bring big changes and potential risks in how they save their data. It is important that your IT team plan these changes and review them with your employees. Workers who normally save to a network drive on a file server will now either need to be connected via VPN or be using something like Microsoft OneDrive for Business.
If you are using Office 365 you should be following Microsoft best practices by backing up with Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup, so that your IT team can ensure that business data can be protected according to corporate policy. .
Protect your applications during spikes in traffic.
As the pandemic spreads around the world, more governments are enforcing partial and full lock-downs such as the California “shelter in place” order. As a result, much of the consumer buying has quickly shifted from physical to online. To retain customers and continue business, retailers need to quickly ramp up ecommerce applications. Similar disruptions are happening to government agencies and other organizations.
Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service can protect your ecommerce and other applications from hackers and bot attacks, and it is very easy to deploy and manage. It provides powerful application security including advanced bot and DDoS protection.
