The Barracuda Networks anti-malware technology is intentionally built to solve the distinct needs of email and Web security tools. Unlike standard antivirus technologies designed for desktop computer usage, Barracuda Networks anti-malware technology is designed particularly for:
Prioritizing quickly-spreading malware threats
Taking advantage of the free and open source (FOSS) security research community resources for the widest reach
With this blend of technologies designed to meet these particular criteria over SMTP and HTTP protocols, Barracuda Networks is able to provide the best available protection of its kind for users of the Barracuda Email Security Gateway and Barracuda Web Security Gateway. Barracuda Networks also integrates these technologies into Barracuda SSL VPN, Barracuda Message Archiver, and Barracuda Web Application Firewall.
Spam, malicious email and viral attacks are becoming more complex and refined. Without the right protection, your corporate email can be a virtual doorway to allowing sensitive information to become damaged or lost, as well as for hacks that can cause your network performance and overall employee productivity to suffer. Barracuda is the industry leader in spam protection for businesses and can help your business deal accordingly with spam email.
The Barracuda Spam Firewall scans email and incoming file attachments using three layers of virus scanning technology. The firewall connects to the Barracuda Security Cloud for the most current protection against the latest threats coming via email.
The firewall also checks for internally contaminated email to prevent the spread of viruses that don’t enter through the email gateway.
The Barracuda Spam Firewall uses Barracuda Central to single out email from known spammers and determines whether or not domains embedded within emails lead to well-known spam or malware sites. It also blocks attempts to embed text within an email.
The Barracuda Web Security Gateway allows business and other entities to benefit from online applications and tools while preventing exposure to viruses and malware from the web, lost user productivity, and abused bandwidth. It’s a thorough solution for web security and management, combining award-winning protection for spyware, malware, and viruses with a strong policy and reporting engine. The most up-to-date features make certain that organizations adjust as needed to newly surfacing requirements like social-network laws/regulation, remote filtering, and visibility into SSL-encrypted traffic.
Unlimited remote user licenses are included to ensure compliance with content and access policies for mobile and desktop devices that aren’t part of the corporate network. The Barracuda Web Security Gateway is also available as a virtual application.
The Barracuda Email Security Gateway manages and filters all incoming and outgoing email traffic to keep businesses and other entities safe threats and data leaks resulting from email. It does this with a few layers of defense – the Gateway Defense Layer (which halts threats before they reach your email server), the Email Resiliency Layer (which guarantees email compliance and continuity with archiving and cloud-to-cloud backup and recovery), the Fraud Protection Layer (“stops social engineering attacks with A-I based fraud detection and DMARC”), and the User Security Awareness Layer (a “human firewall with advanced phishing simulations and training”). As a well-rounded email management solution, the Barracuda Email Security Gateway allows businesses to encrypt emails and use the cloud to their advantage for spooling email if mail servers become unavailable.
The Barracuda Email Security Gateway is offered without fees for each user or each feature and is also available as a virtual application or in a public cloud environment (Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services (AWS).
