Barracuda Delivers Threat Detection, Remediation for Office 365 Customers

Barracuda Networks Inc., a provider for cloud-enabled security solutions furthered its commitment to deliver leading email security solutions with the announcement of three new email protection plans designed to scale to meet customers’ threat protection needs.

Barracuda’s comprehensive solutions combine gateway and API-based AI technology to detect and remediate threats and reduce the risk that a malicious attack succeeds by immediately and automatically eliminating the user’s ability to view or launch flagged emails.

Recent attacks have shown that Office 365 native security has gaps and that third-party solutions are required to ensure customers are protected. According to Gartner, “Microsoft Defender for Office 365 (MSDO) offers a wide set of email security capabilities, but due to the rise in business email compromises, account takeovers and other sophisticated attacks, many times some malicious emails are actually missed by MSDO, and in fact by any other email gateway solutions. Therefore, organizations should strongly consider integrating third-party solutions to strengthen their email security capabilities. Aside from traditional gateway solutions, security and risk management leaders should evaluate API-based solutions to act as an additional layer of protection.”

With Barracuda, customers receive an integrated and validated suite of capabilities to protect their people and business which includes:

  • Threat prevention – Prevent attacks from getting through by combining email-gateway defenses, API-based inbox defense and web security.
  • Post-delivery detection and response – Identify and limit the impact of any threats that reach users with automated response and user security awareness training
  • Data protection – Ensure compliance and stay productive during downtime. Back up important Office 365 email and data to recover from malware attacks or lost data
  • Automated workflows – Create custom workflows to automate incident response
  • SIEM/SOAR/XDR integrations: Public-facing APIs for integrating with third-party platforms to enable seamless and consistent response to security events.
  • Barracuda Data Inspector – Data classification capabilities to help find sensitive data such as personal identifiable information (PII) and malware

Barracuda’s email protection plans are available to customers and partners at these levels:

  • Advanced – Email gateway defense, impersonation and phishing protection and automated remediation.
  • Premium – Everything in Advanced plus incident response, domain fraud protection and DNS filtering
  • Premium Plus – Everything in Premium plus data protection, archiving and user security awareness training
