Comprehensive email threat protection: Protects against phishing, malware, ransomware, and other sophisticated, email-borne threats. Barracuda explains that its multi-layered, cloud-hosted scanning engines include Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection, which combines behavioral, investigative, and sandboxing techniques. Sandboxing techniques is when they execute a suspicious file or URL that is attached to an email or otherwise reaches your network and then observe what happens.
It automatically scans email attachments in real time; suspicious attachments are denotated in a sandbox environment to observe its behavior. Link protection redirects suspicious and typosquatted (a form of cybercrime that involves hackers registering domains with deliberately misspelled names of well-known websites) URLs to protect email recipients against accidental malware downloads.
Archiving for compliance: Barracuda Cloud Email Archiving Service integrates with Exchange and other cloud-based email services to create a cloud-based, itemized archive. It allows granular retention policies, extensive search, role-based auditing/permissions, legal hold, and export.
Ensuring business continuity: Barracuda Email Continuity ensures that email can still be delivered during email outages or loss of connectivity. Email operations continue by falling over to a cloud-based email service in case primary email services become unavailable.
