  • Powerful, enterprise-class solution

    Designed by a team of veteran networking engineers, the Barracuda Email Security Gateway is a powerful, enterprise-class solution. Its architecture leverages open source virus and spam solutions, in conjunction with ten defense layers.

Once installed, the system administrator uses an intuitive web interface for monitoring and maintenance. The Barracuda Email Security Gateway requires minimal maintenance because its innovative design incorporates reliability into every aspect of the product. Energize updates are automatically retrieved by the Barracuda Email Security Gateway, enabling maximum spam and virus protection while eliminating administrative overhead. These updates are provided by Barracuda Central, an advanced technology operations center where engineers continuously monitor the Internet for trends in spam and virus attacks.

  • Affordable

    The Barracuda Email Security Gateway is affordable for businesses of all sizes - small or large. It has no per user license fees, making it the most affordable enterprise-class spam and virus protection solution available.

  • Spam blocking

Email has undoubtedly become a key tool for communications among companies worldwide. However, with frequent virus attacks and the alarming rate that spam has been filling up inboxes, email is quickly becoming a less efficient means of communicating. In fact, the Radicati Group, a market research firm in Palo Alto, California, predicts that by 2007, there will be 50 billion spam messages each day, costing companies almost $200 billion per year. This is simply astounding and unacceptable. It's time to take control of spam.
