Comprehensive Email Threat Protection

Today’s IT professionals need an easy-tomanage email security solution that protects against phishing, malware, and ransomware. Along with multi-layer email security, the Barracuda Email Security Service provides email continuity and data leakage prevention.


Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) combines behavioral, heuristic, and sandboxing technologies to protect against zero hour, targeted attacks and ransomware variants like Locky and CryptoLocker. ATP 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 so malware is never inadvertently downloaded by recipients.

Archiving for Compliance

Barracuda Cloud Email Archiving Service integrates with Exchange and cloud-based email services like G Suite to create a cloud based, indexed archive. It allows granular retention policies, extensive search, auditing/permissions, legal hold, and export helping to facilitate e-discovery and retention.


Litigation holds preserve email from being tampered with 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.

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. During email server outages, an emergency mailbox allows users to continue sending, receiving, reading, and responding to email.
