Barracuda PhishLine

Fight phishing with continuous simulation and training. 

Barracuda PhishLine trains users to understand and respond correctly to the latest phishing techniques, recognize subtle phishing clues, and prevent email fraud, data loss, and brand damage. It transforms employees into a powerful line of defense against damaging phishing attacks.

This versatile, scalable, cloud-hosted SaaS solution includes hundreds of email and landing-pages templates, updated based on threat trends. Levelized training and gamification make it more effective by engaging employees.

Phishing Training

Barracuda PhishLine uses advanced, automated education technology that includes simulation-based training, continuous testing, powerful reporting for administrators, and active incident response awareness.

Phishing Simulation

Simulated phishing attacks are constantly updated to reflect the most recent and most common threats. Simulations are not limited to email, but also include voice, SMS, and portable-media (USB stick) attacks. Templates let you customize simulations.
