Comprehensive security and data protection for email

In today’s complex cyber-threat environment, you need an email security and compliance solution that delivers comprehensive security against sophisticated attacks while also being easy to deploy, configure, and manage. Barracuda Essentials for Email Security provides complete, cloud-based protection against advanced targeted attacks, helps ensure email continuity, scans outgoing email to prevent data loss, and creates unalterable email archives—all without the need to install any additional hardware or software.

Comprehensive email threat protection

Barracuda Email Security Service protects against phishing, malware, ransomware, and other sophisticated,email-borne threats. Its multi-layered, cloud-hosted scanning engines include Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection,which combines behavioral, heuristic,and sandboxing technologies.

This lets it protect your infrastructure against zero-hour, targeted attacks and ransomware variants like Locky and CryptoLocker. It automatically scans email attachments in real time;suspicious attachments are detonated in a sandbox environment to observe behavior. Link protection redirects suspicious and typosquatted URLs to protect email recipients against inadvertent malware downloads.

Archiving for compliance

Barracuda Cloud Email Archiving Service integrates with Exchange and other cloud-based email services like GSuite to create a cloud-based, indexed archive. It allows granular retention policies, extensive search, role-based auditing/permissions, legal hold, and export. It makes it easy to comply with e-discovery requests and regulatory or policy retention requirements.

Litigation hold ensures that email cannot be altered or deleted until the litigation hold expires or is removed. Native and mobile apps provide intuitive interfaces that simplify search to ensure messages are found easily, even when email services are unavailable. An Outlook Add-in lets users transparently search across both mailboxes and archives,enabling greater productivity.

Ensuring business continuity

Barracuda Email Continuity ensures that email can still be delivered during email outages or loss of connectivity. Email operations continue by failing over to a cloud-based email service in the event primary email services become unavailable.
