Barracuda Sentinel

Artificial intelligence for real-time email protection

Business email compromise (BEC), spear phishing, and account takeover are today's top email threats. These hyper-targeted attacks trick employees into making terribly costly mistakes. 

Barracuda Sentinel combines artificial intelligence, deep integration with Microsoft Office 365, and brand protection into a comprehensive cloud-based solution that guards against these potentially devastating attacks.

Real-time defense against business email compromise

Sentinel’s unique API-based architecturelets its AI engine study historical emailand learn users’ unique communicationpatterns. It can then identify anomaliesin message metadata and content,to find and block socially engineeredattacks in real time.

This approach based on historical patternsis far more accurate than traditional policybased strategies for detecting sociallyengineered and account-takeover attacks.

Protection against account takeover and insider risk

Account takeover lets hackers secretlystudy their target and plan their attack.Gateway defenses never see the internalattacks that are launched from thesecompromised accounts, so they can'tdetect them.

Sentinel stops phishing attacks usedto harvest credentials for accounttakeover. It detects anomalous emailbehavior and alerts IT, then finds andremoves all fraud emails sent fromcompromised accounts.

Brand protection and domain fraud visibility

Domain spoofing is a common type ofsocial engineering attack that targetsyour employees, customers, and partners.Sentinel helps prevent email domainfraud with DMARC (Domain-basedMessage Authentication Reporting andConformance) reporting and analysis.

Barracuda Sentinel helps set up DMARCauthentication. Granular visibility andanalysis of DMARC reports helpsyou minimize false positives, protectlegitimate email, and prevent spoofing.
