Stop Spam and Malware with Inbound Filtering
Barracuda Essentials quickly filters and sanitizes every email before it is
delivered to your mail server to protect you from email-borne threats.
Using virus scanning, spam scoring, real-time intent analysis, URL link
protection, reputation checks, and other techniques, Barracuda provides
you with the best possible level of protection.
Barracuda Central, our global 24×7 threat operations center, constantly
monitors the internet for new threats across all attack vectors, and feeds
this intelligence into Essentials’ filtering technology.
Block Advanced Threats
Some of the most dangerous threats come from advanced threats that
are designed to evade email filters. Barracuda Essentials leverages
Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection, a cloud-based service that
defends against ransomware and other malware, including 
zero-day attacks and advanced threats.
We don’t believe this level of security has to come at the price of
performance. Barracuda Essentials uses multiple, layered analytic
engines, including behavioral analytics, static analysis, and finally CPU-
emulation sandboxing to detect unknown and evasive threats.
Protect Outbound Email and Stop
Data Leaks
Employees can inadvertently cause internal systems to become a source
for spam or other malicious mail. Outbound filtering stops outbound
attacks originating from inside the network—which not only protects your
partners and customers, but also keeps you from being added to spam
block lists.
Barracuda Essentials data loss protection and email encryption keeps
sensitive data—such as credit card numbers, social security numbers,
HIPAA data, and more—from leaving your organization. Content policies
can automatically encrypt, quarantine, or even block certain outbound
emails based on their content, sender, or recipient.
Keep Your Data Safe with Cloud-to-
Cloud Backup
Ransomware, natural disasters, and simple human error can cause the
loss of business-critical data at any time. Barracuda Essentials includes
Cloud-to-Cloud Backup and point-in-time recovery for your Office 365
environment. When data is lost, for any reason, you can restore it quickly
and easily, to minimize downtime and ensure business continuity. Cloud-
to-Cloud Backup includes unlimited storage and retention to meet
business requirements even as your business grows.
Stay Compliant with Tamper-Proof
Email Archiving
Compliance is now a key requirement for most organizations, and the
penalties for not meeting business and governmental regulations can be
severe. Email archiving must be implemented in all areas across the
organization to demonstrate and ensure that the business is operating in
a compliant manner and to minimize ongoing legal risk.
Barracuda Essentials provides secure cloud-based archiving, which lets
you easily meet demanding compliance requirements and address
e-discovery requests. Our policy-based approach lets you set up
email retention policies to ensure that important emails are safely
archived to Barracuda’s secure cloud. Custom reports make it easy to
demonstrate compliance with retention regulations and to defend
deletion policies.
Stay Connected and
Productive During Downtime
In the event of a mail server outage or loss of connectivity,
Barracuda Email Continuity ensures that email operations
continue by failing over to our cloud-based email service. An
emergency mailbox lets users continue to send and receive
emails, staying productive until your primary servers are back
Automate Incident Response and
Get Access to Threat Insights
No email defense can protect against every email threat one hundred
percent of the time. And when malicious email ends up in a user’s inbox,
you need to address the problem quickly. Slow, inefficient manual
incident response processes too often allow the attack to spread further.
Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response automates incident
response and provides remediation options to address issues faster and
more efficiently. Admins can send alerts to impacted users and remove
malicious email directly from their inboxes with a couple of clicks.
Discovery and threat insights provided by the Forensics and Incident
Response platform help to identify anomalies in delivered email,
providing more proactive ways to detect email threats.
