Overview

Barracuda Backup enables businesses to run seamlessly by minimizing downtime and preventing data loss, providing the industry’s easiest to deploy and manage all-in-one data protection solution.

The Barracuda Advantage

  • Simple pricing with no per-application or per-agent licensing fees.
  • Backup software, local storage, deduplication and offsite replication that can be rapidly deployed in under an hour.
  • Cloud-based central management for seamless multisite administration.
  • Rapid local or remote recovery, to prevent data loss and minimize down time.
  • Available as an all-in-one physical appliance or virtual appliance.

Product Spotlight

  • Built-in offsite replication to Barracuda Cloud, a remote physical appliance, a remote virtual appliance, or public cloud to prevent data loss in case of disaster.
  • LiveBoot and Cloud LiveBoot enable rapid recovery of virtual machines in minutes.
  • Cloud-to-Cloud Backup protects Microsoft Office 365 environments from data loss with point-in-time recovery.
  • Offsite vaulting enables long-term retention.
  • Compression and inline deduplication provide up to 50X reduction in storage and bandwidth requirements.

Physical and Virtual

Most businesses today have a mixed environment of physical and virtual servers. Barracuda Backup is a single solution to protect physical servers and virtual machines (VMware & Hyper-V) with snapshot and granular file recovery—all with unified management for replication and retention.

All-in-One Backup Solution

Barracuda Backup is a complete solution that comes from one vendor. It combines software, storage, in-line deduplication, and offsite cloud or private replication with no per-application or per-agent licensing fees.

Flexible Deployment

Barracuda Backup is available as an all-inone physical appliance or a virtual appliance offering for those wanting to leverage existing storage and compute infrastructures. Barracuda Backup can replicate data securely and efficiently from an on-premises physical or virtual backup appliance to Barracuda Cloud, a remote physical appliance, a remote virtual appliance, or Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Our solution gives customers the choice of deployment options so they aren’t locked into any specific architecture or platform, and the ability to maintain complete control of their backed-up data.

Cloud-to-Cloud Backup

While Software-as-a-Service and cloudhosted environments such as Microsoft Office 365 are a fantastic way to mitigate natural and mechanical failures, humancaused data loss is still ever present.

Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup for Microsoft Office 365 environments protects Exchange Online, OneDrive for Business, and SharePoint Online from accidental deletion and data loss.

Security

Barracuda Backup is built on a hardened Linux OS with a lower threat profile and fewer threat vectors compared to Windows-based backup products. Our purpose-built Linux distribution features locked-down access, processes, and controls to keep the the bad guys out.

Data is encrypted in flight to and at rest at remote locations with 256-bit AES encryption for secure replication. The Encrypted Appliances also leverage 256-bit AES encryption of data at rest to protect encrypted sources and meet regulatory requirements.

Ransomware Recovery

Ransomware is the most serious cyber threat out there. Today’s evasive, polymorphic threats demand an advanced approach to threat detection that spans all vectors into your network.

A strong data protection strategy is the ultimate ransomware countermeasure, but windows-based backup solutions still tend to be susceptible to ransomware attacks themselves. Barracuda Backup is built on a hardened Linux OS with a lower threat profile and fewer threat vectors.

Long-term retention with more recovery points gives you the ability to roll-back to a pre-infected state, enabling the recovery of maliciously encrypted files without paying a ransom.

Encrypted Appliance

Secure your data against physical theft with Barracuda’s encrypted purpose-built backup appliances to prevent sensitive and critical data from falling into the wrong hands if disk drives are lost or stolen.

  • Barracuda Backup allows organizations to quickly and cost-effectively deploy encrypted backup appliances in their environment to protect encrypted sources and meet regulatory requirements.
  • Barracuda Encrypted Backup appliances help secure against loss if disk drives are lost or stolen. The encrypted data on the disk drives is inaccessible when separated from the backup appliance – making sure it cannot be used maliciously when in the wrong hands.
  • Data is stored at rest using AES 256-bit encryption.
