Some of the key benefits of the Barracuda Spam Firewall are listed below.
Plug and Play Installation
Deploying the Barracuda Spam Firewall is extremely easy. There is no software to install,
no modifications to your existing email systems. Most of our customers complete the plug
and play installation in under 10 minutes.
Independent network device dedicated to spam and virus filtering
The Barracuda Spam Firewall is a self contained network device that handles your email
security needs. Since it's a separate device that will filter out typically more than 60%
of the incoming email, it will greatly reduce the load on your email system. Your email
servers will process and store less incoming email. The performance of your email servers
will increase. You will not have to replace your email server.
The Barracuda Spam Firewall can detect and block spam in more than ten languages and
features a user interface available in Chinese (simplified and traditional), German, French,
Spanish, Japanese, Dutch and English.
User-based and corporate-based filtering
The decision on what types of emails to block can be made either by the user or on
a global corporate level. You have the flexibility to decide where you would like the decision to be made.
Logs and Reports
System administrators can view logs or generate reports. The Barracuda Spyware Firewall
can provide information on infected clients, downloaded spyware and viruses, top blocked
spyware websites, and many more items.
Optional Quarantine Mailboxes
The Barracuda Spam Firewall provides optional quarantine mail boxes for users. Users
can direct questionable email messages into the quarantine area for later review or just
in case. The quarantine area can be enabled or disabled on a per user basis. This can
greatly reduce the support load for a large organization.
Barracuda Energize Updates
A team of security engineers at Barracuda Central monitor the Internet for trends in
spam and virus attacks. As they detect trends, updates are created for the Barracuda Spam
Firewall. The Barracuda Spam Firewall is then automatically updated with new spam rules,
spam algorithms, and virus definitions. The Barracuda Spam Firewall will continue to
deliver comprehensive and accurate protection even as the methods of the spammers change.
Logs and reports
System administrators can view logs or generate reports. The Barracuda Spam Firewall
can provide information on the top email users, top spam recipients, top spam senders, and many more items.
Multiple domains & multiple email servers
A single Barracuda Spam Firewall can be used for multiple email servers and for multiple domains.
