Add a critical security layer on top of Office 365.

The popularity of Office 365 means criminals test and design their attacks to bypass its native security features. And that means you need additional layers of defense. With Advanced Threat Protection enabled, Barracuda uses multiple layers of detection, including signature, static, and behavioral analysis, along with CPU-emulation sandboxing to accurately detect and block zero-hour targeted attacks and ransomware.

Stop social-engineering attacks with context-aware AI.

Traditional email gateways use static rules and policies—reputation analysis, block lists, and malicious payloads—to determine if an email is malicious. Socially engineered emails such as spear-phishing attacks are designed to evade these policy-based security measures.

Barracuda protects your Office 365 inbox against evasive threats with a powerful AI engine that learns the unique communication patterns within your organization through access to internal and historical emails. Once it understands what legitimate emails looks like for each user, it can detect anomalies that signal malicious intent. This context-based detection is more effective at blocking targeted attacks, which are designed to bypass traditional rule-based email security.

Detect and stop account takeover.

Account takeover is one of the fastest-growing email security threats, and a complete email security strategy must offer protection against it. Protection from account takeover requires new technology that has visibility into internal email traffic. Barracuda’s AI engine detects and blocks most sophisticated email attacks that could lead to account takeover, and identifies behavioral and content-forwarding anomalies within already compromised accounts, to help you quickly identify and remediate against account takeover in real time. Native Office 365 defenses are not able to provide this level of protection.

Protect your brand reputation with DMARC reporting.

Hackers commonly use domain spoofing and brand impersonation to launch email attacks that appear to come from your business. These impersonation attacks often target your customers and partners. They can cause serious damage to your brand reputation and even lead to significant financial losses. Your native Office 365 security won’t fully protect your brand from impersonation attacks. Use Barracuda to enhance it.

Barracuda offers DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication Reporting and Conformance) authentication, reporting, analysis, and enforcement that can stop domain-spoofing attacks.

Fight security risks with user awareness training.

Even with the best email security technology, it is possible for threats to reach vulnerable users. An impersonation attack could target a user via their personal email or possibly via fraudulent SMS or voicemail messages. Barracuda offers a powerful phishing simulation and training platform that lets you automatically train users and test security vulnerabilities with simulated phishing attacks. Lack of security awareness training leaves your employees exposed to threats. Barracuda’s broad range of advanced simulation interactions and gamified content keeps your users safe.

Gain intelligent forensics and incident response.

Office 365 does not offer automated incident response as part of its native email security, leaving your organization exposed to sophisticated threats. Barracuda automates incident response and gives access to threat insights for faster and more efficient remediation. We help to identify anomalies in delivered email and proactively find attacks that bypassed email security. Our solution identifies compromised users in need of training and improves workflow for more seamless incident response.
