Barracuda Networks launched their new Email Security Service, a cloud-based e-mail filtering service which offers:
Dual protection points – Onsite and cloud-based threat protection.
E-mail burst handling – E-mail surge suppression during peak traffic and spam spikes, which offloads a significant volume of spam email to be filtered via the cloud.
Immediate response – Automatic updates in real-time to continuously stay ahead of quickly morphing threats.
E-mail continuity – E-mail spooling provides queuing for up to four days and backup MX for email rerouting to a separate destination ensure seamless disaster recovery capabilities in the event of network downtime or system outage.
E-mail encryption – E-mail encryption in the cloud with centralized key management.
“As email threats become more dangerous, customers are demanding more robust capabilities and greater flexibility in deployment options,” said Dean Drako, president and CEO of Barracuda Networks. “The new Barracuda Email Security Service provides customers with a relevant option to block threats before they reach the network and save on bandwidth and continuity. Barracuda Networks offers the most comprehensive set of delivery options – from on-premises, to pure cloud to a combination of the two – to meet the most demanding customer requirements.”
Once email passes through the cloud protection layer, the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall filters email according to more granular policies, recipient verification, quarantining and more.
By contrast, customers that opt to deploy the Barracuda Email Security Service as a pure-cloud offering without the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall will still benefit from full inbound and outbound email filtering, user quarantine and, multi-domain management.
