Protect Users and Data from Email-Borne Threats

Barracuda Essentials provides the most complete, simple, and affordable solution for protecting business emails and data in Office 365. 

It combines award-winning email security, as well as a tamper-proof email archive to ensure compliance and simplify litigation searches. For Office 365, Barracuda also offers full cloud-to-cloud backup and recovery of all your emails and files.

With 91% of hacks starting with a targeted email attack, you need to protect your users, data, and assets. Email-borne data theft, malware, spam, and phishing attacks have become increasingly sophisticated. They lead to business disruptions as well as loss of trust and reputation. Compliance and litigation searches can be expensive and time-consuming.

Key Features

Barracuda Essentials provides end-to-end protection of your business email. Inbound filtering protects against spam, viruses, and phishing attacks. Outbound filtering prevents data leakage and automatically encrypts sensitive data. Advanced Threat Protection blocks advanced zero-hour attacks. Cloud archiving ensures compliance with retention policies, and cloud backup protects you from accidental or malicious data deletion.

Barracuda Essentials includes protection against advanced threats like Ransomware. It leverages a powerful, cloud-based micro-service that combines several layers of detection with increasingly sophisticated analysis that ensures rapid response to zero-hour attacks.

The layers include machine learning and behavioural analytics combined with a CPU-emulation based sandbox for comprehensive threat prevention without any latency. Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection leverages a global threat intelligence network that ingests diverse threat data across multiple threat vectors to provide real-time security.

Compliance is now a key requirement for many organizations, and the penalties for not meeting business and governmental regulations can be severe. 

Barracuda Essentials lets you set up email retention policies to ensure that important emails are safely archived to Barracuda’s cloud. In the event of litigation, you can put legal holds on emails to prevent tampering or removal until the hold expires. In response to regulatory audits, you can demonstrate adherence to retention and defensible deletion policies.

Every day, more organisations are migrating to SaaS and Cloud-hosted environments like Office 365. While these environments are fantastic ways to mitigate against natural and mechanical failures, human-caused data loss and advanced persistent threats that put your data at risk are always present.

Having a sound backup and point-in-time recovery strategy allows you to continue providing backup and recovery services in the event of accidental or malicious deletion or even recovering data in the event you are hit by a ransomware attack. Unlike solutions that use archiving as a substitute for backup, Barracuda Essentials is the only solution to provide a purpose-built backup and recovery service in addition to a comprehensive archiving service.
