This month we let you know that we will be using Barracuda for spam detection and filtering. In technology, tools can change, or stay stagnant and fall behind. We are constantly researching and comparing tools to ensure we offer the best. The support, documentation, and reliability of Barracuda made it a top choice over the tool we were using before.
In case you are interested in the features and reasons we chose Barracuda, here are some of the highlights that made this the best spam tool for our clients.
- Comprehensive Virus Checker
Not only does it scan to email from the outside, but it also scans email from inside your organization. So no matter how that virus got in, it won’t be sent via email.
- Barracuda tracks spammers and domains.
It’s not just about recognizing threats in an email, it’s about tracking those people so as they get better and send trickier emails, they are still not getting through the filter.
- Cloud protection!
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.
- Email Encryption
The Barracuda Spam Firewall keeps your sensitive communication safe by using AES with 256-bit keys to encrypt outbound email. For email traffic between sites over the Internet, the Barracuda Spam Firewall Message Transport Agent supports SMTP over TLS.
- Outbound Filtering and Leak Protection
Have documents that shouldn’t be sent out, but maybe employees forget? Barracuda can be set up to filter outbound messages for specific content so that confidential information doesn’t get where it shouldn’t go.
We search for the perfect tools for your technology so you don’t have to. Our aim is to ensure your security while offering the best support and service. If you have questions about spam tools or any other technology tool, contact us and let us know.
