If you want secure Emails, This is for You.
Vorteile: I worked in the hospital transport system during a time where electronic orders were becoming more and more necessary as patient census was up and the need for rapid and efficient transport was needed. One of the biggest security risks in any hospital database is patient information. With the increase of enforcement of HIPA and the frequent JACO inspections, emailing patient information in an unsecured way was not tolerated by hospital institutions. Barracuda would allow us to encrypt patient information in a secure format so it would be near impossible for the information to be intercepted by an unwanted party. I appreciated the ease of use as both the sender and the receiver of messages. While having received more messages then I have sent, you would receive an email with nearly no information on it other than the senders name, a link to an encrypted web page where you would log in and receive the message. At this point you also had an opportunity to reply to the message with the same type of security. This is an A+++ program and is essential to anyone in healthcare dealing with sensitive patient information.
Nachteile: I do not have much to say in regards to what I did not like about the software. The only thing I could think of was that it did slow down message exchange but was worth the security for the patient.

Great way to get a better control of your email
Kommentare: Much lighter load on my MS Exchange server, full control of all the incoming correspondence.
Vorteile: Set it and forget it solution for your email that will help you to significantly reduce amount of unwanted correspondence. Fully automated platform, automatic updates, self learning mechanism. Outstanding customer service and technical support, when you need them. One day I needed an urgent replacement of the unit, because mine broke. Replacement unit arrived in less than 24 hours! In addition, if you host your email in-house (MS Exchange for example), it will significanlty decrease load on your server, blocking all the unwanted messages BEFORE they his your mail server. Administration is very simple and flexible. You can create custom rules in addition to the automated scanning of inbound correspondence.
Nachteile: While automatic updates are convenient, there were a couple of instances, when the updates were corrupted, resulting in blocking all of my mail. Gladly, Barracuda technical support is always there for you, as I have mentioned. They were able to correct the problem within a couple of hours each time this happened.

Secure and Powerful
When it comes to email security, Barracuda certainly is the right tool. A small, lightweight appliance that handles not only scanning of emails, it also does traffic routing and monitoring and gives you detailed reports about the health of your environment.
Barracuda has an up-to-date database of IBL addresses, as well as advanced virus scanning built-in. Definitions are updated automatically as they come out, so you don't need any manual intervention. Firmware updates are also automatic, so it pretty much takes car of itself.
Everything is manageable through and easy to use Web Interface, which lets you blacklist, whitelist, track delivery, run reports and so much more. Honestly though, the only time you really need to log into the console is to check on a blacklisted address, which is very rarely. You do get your occasional false-positive and even rarer false-negative, but it happens so rarely that I really find it insignificant.
In terms of reliability, I have found that the Barracuda hardly needs to be rebooted(Maybe once a year, if even) and quickly comes back online and continues what it does best.
Nachteile: I honestly don't have anything I dislike about the Barracuda. It works and works well. Aside from email security, I have used it as a traffic router and proxy server and a NAT firewall, so I really find nothing wrong with it

USED THIS FOR 10 Plus YEARS
Kommentare: Many fewer pieces of junk mail in my outlook software!
Vorteile: most junk mail never makes it to outlook, I can still review all the junk mail that comes through in case the wrong thing got categorized as junk. Easy to change it to deliver to my mail box, or delete. Easy to view it to determine if it is junk. NEW FEATURE at the bottom of the list of junk, just select, delete all shown mail. I do this for all my reception desk email. They have about 35-50 pieces of junk mail a day. I can pull a single piece of mail out, deliver it then delete the rest in a snap
Nachteile: they used to be slow to pull up, so I would hit delete on one piece of mail and ignore it for a little while opened in my browser until it loaded, that has really improved in the last few weeks. Also if you leave it open and ignore it after a period of time it logs you out so you have to go to the original and hit the link again. Truly minor for the headaches it clears for me. I receive 100+ emails a day I HAVE to read, eliminating a bunch really helps.

Good mail security solution
Kommentare: e-mail is probably the largest threat vector we deal with. We've been using Barracuda for a number of years to protect our company and have great success protecting our desktops from receiving e-mails with Malware and bad links. Phishing attacks are hard for any protection service to adjust to and I feel Barracuda has done a great job taking care of us. Good support with expertise technicians have always made it easy to resolve any problems I was unable to resolve myself.
Vorteile: Solid mail security solution. Works great in protecting our domain from the barrage of mail we get each day. Tons of features including the ability to adjust how tight we want to scrutinize incoming mail. Easy to work with regarding reviewing and releasing captured e-mail and Spam tagging. Very customizable for adjusting protection
Nachteile: Takes time for items tagged as SPAM to propagate and protect from similar e-mails coming in

Works very well at blocking and quarantining email spam.
Kommentare: An easy way to filter email spam and viruses, while proving whitelisting and blacklisting of specific users and domains.
Vorteile: Fairly easy to administer. easy to check if email from a specific user or domain is being blocked so it can be whitelisted. Blacklisting email from a specific user or domain is also easily done. We subscribe to Barracuda Energize Updates, which checks the Barracuda corporate site for the latest spam and virus rules, and automatically installs them on our Barracuda. Telephone tech support has been great at solving a couple random issues and with very quick response times.
Nachteile: Required some advanced initial setup configuration by a local Barracuda reseller. Have not really had any major issues with our unit.

Expensive product, when it works, it works well, beware when it does not.
Kommentare: It was a replacement for a Cisco Spam Blocker/Ironport device. As far as a replacement, it works when it works.
Vorteile: It's easy to deploy, and once deployed it is a standalone device that works as the filter. No resource drag on your other systems.
Nachteile: The hardware it sits on has issues. The first device I received would periodically freeze and had to be manually powered off and then on. There is no warning when it happens and there is no pattern. After several rounds with the tech support, they sent me a replacement. The second one doesn't freeze but sometimes will hold a bunch of emails in queue and not process them for no particular reason. Seems to have something to do with their energize updates eating up all the system's resources.

Protect your server like no other, it works like a charm!
Vorteile: We've had a Barracuda box for 10+ years and no other appliance nor software could match its performance. One, it was truly plug and play (unlike others). Two, their support/consultants are extremely helpful. Three, the comprehensive layers of protection are in a class of their own. There are many other reasons to list regarding what I like but those three alone are what make Barracuda our leading solution for defense.
Nachteile: No cons to list. However, if you're sending spam yourself - your efforts won't even come through as tests. That may be a problem for some but it's more of a personal issue due to their own marketing practices. You'll get what you paid for!

Okay experience with the spam firewall
Kommentare: It protects your email users from outside attacks and spam, but it really has been the same product for 10+ years, and I get better false positives using other open source anti-spam products today.
Vorteile: Easy to use. Enjoy the product flexibility with both public and private cloud products to protect both public and private cloud email servers. Supports non-Barracuda black and white lists as well. Has both virtual and physical solutions. Great technical support.
Nachteile: Physical and virtual appliances are expensive, but the spam and virus definitions subscription fees are the normal costs. They really have not improved the product much, and the email encryption is something that needs work (not easy to use).

It is the best spam firewall I have ever used.
Kommentare: It filters and prevents data leak. It shields against email threats. It prevents threats from affecting the network. It safeguards sensitive data. It really simple to use.
Vorteile: It is a very user friendly and secured software. The authority gives updates frequently. It protects from common spam and viruses with cloud-based service that filters messages before they even arrive to the system's firewall.
Nachteile: It is a bit expensive for mass users. Barracuda does not block suspicious emails entirely rather sends them to a quarantine folder. Individual users can access quarantined email, which opens them up to the possibility of accidentally clicking on spam or downloading a virus.

Awesome Email Security !
Nasir khan ن.
Kommentare: Before purchasing Barracuda Email Security Gateway our 4 to 5 mailboxes on Office 365 Cloud were blocked on daily basis. Then we re-route inbound traffic from Office 365 Cloud to Barracuda Email Security Gateway, now all threats filtered out before reaching emails on Office 365 Cloud. Single Sign On (SSO) and deployment of Encrypted SSL are very likely features of this product.Multi Domain integration also supported by Barracuda. Another feature is its energizer updates, specially when Barracuda subscription expires its worked fine. Lot of other superb feature are bundled with this product.
1. Cloud-based service that pre-filters messages before they even arrive to the system’s firewall.
2. Instead of blocking suspicious emails entirely, Barracuda sends them to a quarantine folder.
3. Fastest process of Large Emails Queue.
4. In-Depth Email logs.
5. It working fine with Hybrid Exchange 365 as inbound and outbound virtual appliance.
6. Its integration Single Sign On (SSO) feature that integrate Barracuda with Active Directory.
Nachteile: Its physical appliance licensing cost is very high instead of virtual appliance.

Security for your email like no other
Vorteile: It is a trusted software for us which keeps our emails safe and separates junk emails from important emails. An amazing feature is the possibility to scan through junk emails at the end of the day in case an important email gets mixed up with junk ones. Tech support has been great as well, response was fast and concise.
Nachteile: Some important emails have been ending up in my junk mail for a few times already. I have made it a habit to check my junk mails in order for me to not lose any important emails. I hope that updates can fix this problem, it is really a bit bothersome.

No News is Good News
Kommentare: Great anti-spyware software that runs unobtrusively in the background. Most antispyware software that runs in the background really slows things down and causes latency. Barracuda provides a smooth experience.
Vorteile: It definitely works like it's supposed to. Each day we get a summary of all of the spam emails that we received and most were malicious in nature. Very few false positives get stuck through the filter!
Nachteile: I didn't purchase it, but I hear it's not really the economical option. We maintain sensitive engineering prints and this level of security is essentially a requirement to win some contracts.

Kommentare: The overall experience with Barracuda has been great. It cut down the amount of spam messages that were received and does a great job of encrypting emails. The cons are only minor annoyances, but very much tolerable.
Vorteile: Barracuda is great at stopping threats coming through in emails. It stops a majority of spam mail and can blacklist a sender if one does happen to make it through. It also allows for email encryption, which is vital for user security. If an email gets quarantined, it will let the user know via email that they can log into Barracuda and check the email information before deciding to release or delete it.
Nachteile: The management interface is somewhat slow to respond. If in a high volume environment, email communication can be slow at times.

I have used Barracuda's Spam Firewall 300 appliance for 5 years.
Vorteile: This product simply works. There are new virus/spam definitions automatically sent out multiple times a day. Firmware updates are very easy to install (and uninstall, if necessary). Users are able to modify their personal quarantine and white/blacklist settings to suit their needs.
Nachteile: The web management interface is rather slow to respond. They need some more advanced security functions built into the software. And the syslog messages generated by the appliance are difficult to translate (and their is limited documentation from Barracuda).

Great value for excellent protection
Kommentare: This software helps us maintain HIPAA compliance when sending information, and keep our infrastructure secure by blocking all spam messages.
Vorteile: I like how simple this system is to use. Additionally, it just works. I haven't seen a piece of malware slip through and the false positive rate is relatively low. The added ability to encrypt email with keywords or by it identifying protected information is a wonderful addition.
Nachteile: The only issue I've had with this is that we get no notification when emails are automatically encrypted based on protected infomation, so we cannot notify recipients that aessage will be encrypted and occasionally it's a little sesnitive to information it determines as "protected".

The right tool for the job
Kommentare: We used BSF to reduce overall spam e-mail and improve network security; it has accomplished those goals.
Vorteile: The Barracuda Spam Firewall simply does what it is supposed to do -- it stops spam. Since implementation we've seen a significant decrease (to less than 2% of all attempts) in spam getting through to our users.
Nachteile: The user interface is slow and sometimes hides options in strange tabs (for example, Administration vs Advanced Networking -- why not just a single "networking" tab where you can do it all?)

Great Spam Firewall
Kommentare: It allows you to review the spam before it is deleted
Vorteile: I like that the software will allow you to view without opening the email within you system. This makes it easy to find out if it is phishing or not. I also like the whitelist feature that will allow you to let them know if an email should come to your inbox or not.
Nachteile: You only receive an email once a day about spam mail. If something is really important that could be in your spam box, you must wait to see if it is there or not.

Excellent Product - Tons of Features
Kommentare: Overall we are very pleased with the product. It has prevented a lot of unwanted emails and the ease of using it (once you are familiar with it) is great.
Vorteile: The application has many features and tools you can use to easily find a certain email or group of emails. The reporting and graphs makes it easy to know whats been done.
Nachteile: There's a lot that it can do, so learning takes a while and can sometimes get confusing, however, once you are familiar with the application its easy to use

This application is a must-- Keeps me 100% protected from spam & spyware.
Kommentare: I would not feel comfortable opening up an email without using this software.
Vorteile: I like that this program not only protects my email from spam, but in addition to that, spyware too. I can honestly 100% say my email has been clean and protected since beginning the use of this software. Threats are identified and quarantined as quick as they come in. Blocking sites is as easy as one click, and the program even offers training videos which make it incredibly easy to learn to use.
Nachteile: If something is blocked unnecessarily, it is difficult to unblock the site which only has happened once, but no longer is an issue.

No problems after 4 years
Vorteile: Barracuda seems to do a fine job filtering out at least the obvious threats. I haven't had any major problems with it in the 4+ years my company has used it.
Nachteile: It does not detect phishing emails very well. I would think it would be able to see that an email had certain traits, like being non-personalized, very short, containing a link, and sent from a Russian email address and filter it, but I don't think it can do that.

Kommentare: I experience this software in my daily workflow and I am exceptionally pleased with how well it works.
Vorteile: This software does an excellent job keeping out unwanted sites from our company website. We use the internet daily at our company with over 5,000 employees so you can imagine how many times this software has saved our company from websites that are not safe.
Nachteile: There is nothing I dislike about this software.

Proven Spam protection for your business
Vorteile: We've been using Barracuda SPAM Firewall for a number of years. Very happy with the results. It scans emails and incoming files. The firewall connects to the Security cloud which guarantees the most up-to-date protection.
Nachteile: After every Barracuda update, the Barracuda Spam Firewall would stop us from using the internet. Quick fix for that - turn off the unit and turn it back on.

Great customer service and spam filter.
The support is very knowledgeable and is very quick to help out when needed. My spam and unwanted emails are successfully being filtered out and it makes my inbox so much more manageable.
I like that I can customize the filters.
Nachteile: I haven't had many issues but it did take a little while to learn everything that the program has to offer. I love labeling spam emails.
