AI for impersonation protection

Barracuda can automatically detect and prevent spear-phishing attacks that evade traditional email security systems. Barracuda’s AI engine learns each organization's unique communication patterns and leverages these patterns to identify anomalies and quarantine spear-phishing attacks in real time.

Barracuda automatically quarantines business email compromise attacks by detecting anomalies in the email header, as well as the content of the email. The AI does not require any manual rules or user setup and can detect any type of BEC attack automatically from day one.

Barracuda can detect any type of employee impersonation, including impersonation of executives, as well as mid- and low-level employees. It can detect spoofed emails, typosquatted domains, and impersonation emails sent from free or personal email clients.

By discovering anomalous communication patterns within the body of the email, the link, or the email header, Barracuda can stop zero-day phishing attacks that evade other email security systems. It can detect any type of zero-day phishing attacks, including links leading to a fake sign-in page, as well as links to malicious websites.

Barracuda has been trained to recognize and automatically quarantine phishing emails that impersonate web services, such as Microsoft Outlook, Docusign, and Dropbox. The Barracuda AI can prevent web impersonations, even when they use deceptive characters or zero-day links.

Barracuda automatically stops attacks that impersonate employees by spoofing their email address. The AI engine recognizes the anomalies in spoofing emails and quarantines them.

Barracuda AI can automatically predict which employees are likely to be targeted by spear-phishing attacks, based on their role and their day-to-day access to sensitive information.

Customers can report false positives and missed attacks to Barracuda, which are used to retrain the AI classifiers. This enables the AI to continuously improve its precision and adapt its detection capabilities.

The raw data from the AI detections can be exported to a CSV file.

Flexible API-based deployment

Barracuda Impersonation Protection uses Office 365 APIs to connect directly to your environment. The APIs allow the AI to both learn customer historical communication patterns, as well as detect and quarantine emails in real time. It’s a cloud-based SaaS solution that requires no maintenance or installation.

You can set up Barracuda’s impersonation protection in 1 minute by simply signing up and connecting it to your Office 365 tenant. No need to change your MX records or install any software.

The API architecture allows impersonation protection to work alongside any existing gateway-based email security solution as a last layer of defense for targeted attacks.

The Barracuda AI engine can be applied to historical emails, using the Email Threat Scanner for Office 365. This allows customers to generate a free email-risk report to see what types attacks are not being stopped by their existing systems, understand the value that can provide, and provide ROI for senior executives. The Email Threat Scanner for Office 365 takes two minutes to set up and is completely free.
