Some of the key benefits of the Barracuda Spam Firewall-Outbound Mode are listed below.
Powerful, Enterprise-Class Solution
The Barracuda Spam Firewall– Outbound Mode is a powerful enterprise-class solution
that provides outbound email protection in three key ways:
Stops virus proliferation
Enforces corporate policies
No organization, especially no ISP, wants to be the source of viruses or spam. It
not only puts a tremendous strain on the company’s network, but it’s also damaging to
the organization’s reputation. The Barracuda Spam Firewall– Outbound Mode ensures that
all email leaving the network is virus-free and legitimate. It prevents people from
unintentionally or intentionally using the organization’s network to send viruses or spam.
The Barracuda Spam Firewall– Outbound Mode also helps ensure that employees are in
compliance with government regulations and corporate information policies. With laws
that now govern how or when companies are able to disseminate sensitive information,
it is critical for companies to monitor emails for regulatory compliance. But even absent
such regulations, it makes good business sense to enforce corporate information policies
and protect intellectual property from being inappropriately disseminated.
The Barracuda Spam Firewall– Outbound Mode is the most affordable solution for outbound
email protection. With no per user license fees, the Barracuda Spam Firewall– Outbound Mode
is affordable for businesses of all sizes—from small organizations to global ISPs and enterprises.
Virus Outbreak Protection
The Barracuda Spam Firewall – Outbound Mode can identify users that have a virus and
can stop it before it is disseminated, preventing viruses from being sent to users outside
the corporate network. A variety of methods including dual layer virus blocking, file
type blocking, and decompression of archives is used for such virus outbreak protection.
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.
The Barracuda Spam Firewall – Outbound Mode can detect and block outbound spam in
more than ten languages and features a user interface available in Chinese (simplified
and traditional), German, French, Spanish, Japanese, Dutch and English.
Corporate and Regulatory Policy Enforcement
Organizations must make sure that intellectual property and other confidential information
is protected. Heightened awareness surrounding government regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley,
HIPAA and Gramm-Leach-Bliley, have increased the need for organizations to take a more
proactive role in policing what information is disseminated through email. The Barracuda
Spam Firewall – Outbound Mode is designed to enforce such policies through footer attachment,
scanning and filtering, keyword and attachment blocking. In addition, The Barracuda Spam
Firewall - Outbound Mode enables the administrator or user to set quarantine parameters
for questionable email that can be reviewed and released, or blocked as needed.
Protection Against Spam Proliferation
In the last year a growing number of spam operations have employed unsuspecting open
relays to send spam. This practice often goes unnoticed by the IT staff until problems,
such as server overload or blacklisting, disrupts regular email communication. The
Barracuda Spam Firewall – Outbound Mode uses advanced rate control features to thwart
Zombie PCs and alert the IT staff of the affected organization any time a large quantity
of email attempts to leave the network. The hijacked machine can then be shut down before
the bulk of spam is sent. In addition to rate controls, the Barracuda Spam Firewall-Outbound
Mode also uses domain restrictions, IP restrictions and user authentication to prevent outbound spam.
