Recent Kwazulu-Natal Business News
Loophold Security Distribution, the local distributor of Barracuda Networks products in southern Africa, has announced the local availability of the new Barracuda Email Security Service, an affordable, reliable and comprehensive cloud-based email filtering service. This new service can be leveraged as a cloud protection layer for the Barracuda Spam and Virus Firewall when deployed in hybrid mode, providing customers with the best of both worlds: onsite email protection backed by the scalability, reliability and continuity benefits of the cloud.
Says Martin Tassev, MD at Loophold Security Distribution, "Amid an increasingly volatile email environment, organisations are starting to look seriously at either hybrid or pure cloud email services, which bring greater flexibility. However, security is always a question in organisations' minds, especially with the host of new threats that emerge on a daily basis.
Barracuda's Email Security Service stops threats before they reach the network, and features automatic updates from Barracuda Labs and Barracuda Central, providing organisations' with the latest updates, protecting them from new threats as soon as they are unleashed."
Using Barracuda Networks' powerful new email security service as a pure cloud offering or with the Barracuda Spam and Virus Firewall in hybrid mode, customers will benefit from:
. Dual Protection Points - comprehensive onsite and cloud-based threat protection including the Barracuda Anti-Virus Super Computing Grid and Barracuda Advanced Anti-Fraud Intelligence.
. Email Burst Handling - email surge suppression during peak traffic and spam spikes, which offloads a significant volume of spam email to be filtered via the cloud.
. Immediate Response - automatic updates in real-time leveraging threat intelligence from Barracuda Labs and Barracuda Central to continuously stay ahead of quickly morphing threats.
. Email Continuity - email spooling provides queuing for up to four days and backup MX for email rerouting to a separate destination ensure seamless disaster recovery capabilities in the event of network downtime or system outage.
. Outbound Email Encryption - allows customers to specify a policy to determine which outgoing emails should be encrypted. Any emails that match the policy are transferred to the Barracuda Message Center, which encrypts the emails and sends a separate notification to the recipient.
Once email passes through the cloud protection layer, the Barracuda Spam and Virus Firewall filters email according to more granular policies, recipient verification, quarantining and more.
By contrast, customers that opt to deploy the Barracuda Email Security Service as a pure-cloud offering without the Barracuda Spam and Virus Firewall will still benefit from full inbound and outbound email filtering, user quarantine and multi-domain management.
