Next-Generation Protection against Advanced Malware, Ransomware, Targeted Attacks, and Zero-Day Threats.

The threat landscape is constantly evolving. Your organization faces zero-hour malware exploits, targeted attacks, and advanced persistent threats that routinely bypass traditional signature based IPS and antivirus engines. You are not alone. These constant threats impact companies across all industries, from small to large organizations with increasing frequency. Barracuda's Advanced Threat Protection enables businesses like yours to go beyond securing and protecting their assets from intrusion and data loss.

Defend Your Network against Advanced Cyber Threats

Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection uses cloud-generation sandbox technology powered by full-system emulation to catch not only persistent threats and zero-day exploits, but also advanced malware designed to evade detection. The files are forwarded to a cloud-based sandbox environment, where they are executed and thoroughly analyzed to identify suspicious and malicious behavior. This guarantees that even sophisticated pieces of malware, like ransomware such as Locky or Teslacrypt, are no harm to your digital assets.

Instant Threat Visibility with Granular Control

The administrator has full policy control over how PDF documents, Microsoft Office files, EXEs/MSIs/DLLs, Android APKs, compressed files and archives are emulated and delivered to the client. Based on identified malware activity, infected users can be automatically quarantined, thereby preventing the malware from spreading within the network or creating encrypted and unwanted communications to the outside.

Detailed File Analysis Report

Customizable, on-demand Analysis Reports for any emulated file provide full insight and details on malicious activities, file behavior, system-registry entries, evasion and obfuscation techniques. This also enables network activities such as establishing encrypted connections to Botnet Command and Control Centers for increased security posture to evade scaled Botnet attacks.

Avoid Encrypted Communication Attacks

Files that are delivered to your network by means of SSL encrypted traffic streams can generate a severe threat to your organization by bypassing traditional network security mechanisms. Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection is fully interoperable with the integrated SSL Inspection. This ensures identification and protection from advanced threats when they arrive via encrypted SSL connections.

Benefit of comprehensive Botnet and Spyware Protection

In combination with the Advanced Threat Protection cloud database, all Barracuda CloudGen Firewall provide protection against botnet infections. Barracuda CloudGen Firewalls detect potentially infected clients based on DNS requests. Once an infected client is detected, it can be isolated automatically, and an alert can be created or reported with the (available for free) Barracuda Report Creator.

Flexible, Scalable Deployment Options

Barracuda ensures flexible and simple deployment with your existing network infrastructure—no additional hardware is required since resource-intensive sandboxing is offloaded to the cloud. The Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection subscription is available for all hardware and virtual appliances of the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall as well as for all major public cloud offerings like Microsoft Azure,Amazon Web Services, and Google Cloud.
