Barracuda Spam Firewall
Understanding the Threat
Spam, malicious email and virus attacks are becoming ever more sophisticated. Your corporate email is a passage that can enable sensitive information to be demolished or lost and for attacks that can hurt your network performance and employee productivity.
Comprehensive Virus Protection
The Barracuda Spam Firewall scans email and incoming files using three layers of powerful virus scanning technology. The firewall connects to the Barracuda Security Cloud to for the most up-to-date protection against the latest email-borne threats.
Threats do not always come from the outside. The firewall also checks for internally tainted email to prevent the spread of viruses that don’t access the email gateway.
Proven Spam Protection
Barracuda is the industry leader in spam protection for businesses. The Barracuda Spam Firewall leverages Barracuda Central to identify email from known spammers and determine whether domains embedded within emails lead to known spam or malware sites. It also protects against attempts to embed text inside images with the intent of hiding content from traditional spam filters.
Offload resource-intensive content security to the cloud
The Scalability of the Cloud Protection Layer
A Cloud Protection Layer (CPL) pre-filters email before delivery to the on-site Barracuda Spam Firewall. Your firewall leverages the power of Barracuda’s global, continuously updated cloud to offload resource intensive work such as scanning large attachments and handling email surges.
