Complete Email Protection Requires a Layered Defense

Between 75% and 90% of targeted cyber-attacks start with an email. Email-borne attacks interrupt business operations, cause financial damage, and compromise business integrity. Barracuda protects you by extending traditional email security with a multi-faceted approach that protects all aspects of your email infrastructure.

Next-Generation Email Security

As email-borne attacks have become more prevalent and sophisticated, traditional email security gateways can no longer protect users and data. Many threats, such as spear phishing attacks or emails directed at users via their personal email, bypass gateways.

While a secure gateway is still necessary, complete email protection also requires a multi-layered defense that stops advanced attacks and protects email data. Barracuda is the only company that combines award-winning email security that can identify phishing emails with user awareness training, archiving, and backup.

Defense Starts with the Email Security Gateway


Inbound Filtering Stops Spam and Protects Users

  • Anti-spam technologies that block analyze several aspects of email messages with granular policy controls
  • Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) that combines behavioral, heuristic, and sandboxing technologies to protect against zero-hour and targeted attacks
  • Protection against sender spoofing, and domain name validation
  • Link Protection and Typo-squatting protection that automatically rewrites URLs I emails so they can be validated at click time to block malicious links

Outbound Filtering and Encryption Protect Your Data and Reputation

  • Prevent your organization from being put on spam block lists
  • Prevents outbound attacks originating from inside your network
  • DMARC, DKIM, and SPF authentication to validate emails and prevent others from spoofing your domain
  • Data Leakage Protection (DLP) that prevents sensitive data such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, HIPAA data, and customer lists from being sent by email
  • Email Encryption that ensures secure email transmissions

Ensure Email Compliance and Business Continuity

Email Archiving and e-discovery Simplify Compliance

Barracuda Essentials provides a cloud-based archive of all email communication to ensure that you meet demanding business and legal requirements. It follows the accepted “best practice” approach for compliance by archiving an original copy of every email into a separate immutable store for long term retention and preservation.

The service offers easy-to-use search capabilities, ranging from the most basic search to advanced Boolean search strategies for e-discovery requests. It includes native and mobile apps for Android and iOS.

Ensure Continuity with Email Server Failover and Backup

Barracuda Essentials ensures that email operations continue by failing over to a cloud-based, email service, in the event primary email services become unavailable. During email server outages, an emergency mailbox allows users to continue sending, receiving, reading, and responding to email.

If you use Office 365, hosting production data in the cloud does not mitigate the need for backup and recovery. Emails and important documents are susceptible to corruption and risk being unrecoverable due to malicious attacks or even accidental deletion. Barracuda Essentials protects Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, and OneDrive for Business data by backing it up directly to Barracuda Cloud Storage.

Protect Users from Email Fraud and Phishing Attacks


Real-Time Spear Phishing Protection with the Power of AI

Barracuda Sentinel is powered by an AI engine that detects and blocks spear phishing attacks in real time. The AI engine automatically learns the unique communication patterns of each individual organization. It uses this knowledge to find anomalous signals in the attributes of the incoming message's metadata and content. Barracuda Sentinel combines these signals to determine with a high degree of accuracy whether an email is part of a spear phishing attack. If identified, spear phishing attacks are quarantined in real-time, and the recipient and administrator are notified of the attempted attack.

Protect Your Brand with Domain Fraud Protection

Barracuda Sentinel protects your brand by stopping domain spoofing and unauthorized activity. It provides an intuitive wizard to implement DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication Reporting & Conformance) to ensure deliverability of legitimate email traffic while preventing unauthorized third-party senders from spoofing our domain.
