Barracuda’s wide range of high-performance network solutions are specifically designed to protect your threat vectors no matter where they reside. Whether it is a website, email, web application, or mobile device, Barracuda has the tools necessary for you to secure and optimize your network perimeter.

Email Protection

Over 75% of targeted cyber-attacks start with an email. Email-borne attacks interrupt business operations, cause financial damage, and compromise business integrity. Barracuda protects you with multiple layers of protection that includes all aspects of your email infrastructure including gateway defense, email resiliency, fraud protection, and user security awareness.

Next-Generation Email Security

As email-borne attacks have become more prevalent and sophisticated, traditional email security gateways can no longer protect users and data. Many threats, such as spear phishing attacks or emails directed at users via their personal email, bypass gateways.

While a secure gateway is still necessary, complete email protection also requires a multi-layered defense that stops advanced attacks and protects email data. Barracuda is the only company that combines award-winning email security that can identify phishing emails with user awareness training, archiving, and backup.

Network and Application Security

Barracuda Cloud Generation network and application firewalls are the industry’s first solutions purpose-built for cloud connected, on-premises, and hybrid networks. Barracuda protect all your users, applications, and data – regardless of what your infrastructure looks like. We ensure secure and reliable connections among multiple sites on premises and the cloud with consumption-based pricing, saving you money on infrastructure costs.

Moving from the Data Center to the Public Cloud

When you migrate your applications to the public cloud, traditional on-premises firewall functionality often doesn’t translate well to public cloud environments. Cloud Generation Firewalls are designed to provide support for public cloud deployment best practices, support public cloud specific use cases and facilitate you with a commercial model designed for public cloud consumption.

Data Protection

Barracuda’s all-in-one approach to data protection makes it easier than ever to protect your business from data loss and theft. Data can be backed up to any location including the public cloud — eliminating the need to purchase and manage backup solutions from multiple vendors. You can even back up your cloud-based Office 365 data such as emails. All backed up data is replicated to the secure Barracuda cloud with unlimited storage.

Don’t Be a Ransomware Victim

Ransomware is on the rise. Barracuda’s multi-layered defense protects your data (and your money).

Understanding Ransomware

Ransomware is a type of malware that lets attackers find and encrypt your most important data. They then offer to provide the decryption key only if you pay a ransom, within a short time. This is the number one IT security challenge that you face today, with resource-limited small and mid-size businesses the most likely targets.

Cybercriminals exploit a variety of threat vectors, including email, network traffic, user behavior, and application traffic to insert ransomware. Without a comprehensive security strategy that secures all these vectors, you are almost certain to become a victim.

  • 47% of businesses have been affected by ransomware.
  • The FBI reports that $209 million was paid to ransomware criminals in the first quarter of 2016.
  • 59% of ransomware infections are delivered via email attachments and embedded URLs.
Barracuda provides a complete family of solutions that work together to help you detect, prevent, and recover from ransomware attacks.

Detect

Detect ransomware and other advanced threats, using automated online threat scanners (offered at no charge) and advanced, multi-layer detection technologies including sandbox analysis.

Prevent

Prevent them from infecting your systems, thanks to best-of-breed products to secure your network perimeter, email, web traffic, and outward-facing web applications.

Recover

Recover quickly and easily in case attackers are successful, with state-of-the-art backup solutions that leave attackers with nothing, while you get right back to business.

Why is Backup Necessary for Office 365?

The number one cause of data loss in a SaaS deployment, such as Microsoft Office 365, is accidental data deletion. In fact, about 70 percent of all lost data is due to either accidental or malicious deletion of data by end-users. Other ways that data can be lost include misconfiguration, client sync issues, and most recently the widespread presence of malware and ransomware, which can render data unusable.

Although Microsoft Office 365 provides some basic recovery options with the recycle bin and email retention, Microsoft’s primary focus within Office 365 is ensuring that service and data availability are not disrupted. It is your responsibility to protect the data that you store in the Office 365 cloud. Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup provides comprehensive, cost-effective, and scalable protection of your Office 365 data –without adding to your infrastructure costs.

What We Protect

Barracuda’s Cloud-to-Cloud Backup Service backs up all of your Office 365 data to secure Barracuda Cloud Storage with no need for on-premises infrastructure. You can back up data on demand or according to an automated schedule. All Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, and OneDrive for Business data is deduplicated and compressed for maximum storage efficiency and reduced backup windows before being stored in the Barracuda Cloud.

Exchange Online. Barracuda protects the complete folder structure of each user’s mailbox including all email message and attachments.
OneDrive for Business. All files and folders under the Documents Library are protected.
SharePoint Online. We protect SharePoint data including Document Libraries, Site Assets, and Picture Libraries within both Team Sites and Public Sites are protected.

Fast and Easy Recovery Options

All Office 365 data backed up to the Barracuda Cloud is accessible, searchable, and retrievable from anywhere with an Internet connection. Data can be recovered from the site level down to the individual item level. Messages, folders, or even entire mailboxes and be restored back to the original user and location, to a different location within the account, or to a completely different user account. You can also download items for offline use.

If you’re looking for a specific file or message but are unsure of its location, the search feature can be used to find the item quickly and easily. You can also recover data to a specific point in time by selecting the specific dates from a built-in calendar. Recovered data is compressed to minimize download times.

Powerful Reporting and Statistics

For IT Administrators, detailed reporting and audit logging are a key component of a backup solution. Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup provides backup status and health monitoring for each backup source. Automated email alerts are delivered after each backup to specified email recipients containing a summary of the backup and detailed information about which email messages, folders, and files were added, modified, and removed since the last backup.

On the Status page, graphs show the number of items added and amount of data backed up each day. Storage statistics and graphs detail how much data has been backed up overall and the storage efficiency, as well as how much data is actually being stored in the Barracuda Cloud after deduplication and compression. An Audit Log tracks and provides details about every action performed within the Cloud-to-Cloud Backup interface.
