We have had a couple of legal inquiries which required us to review emails for a user or users. Using the Barracuda Cloud Archiving Service, we have been able to perform searches quickly, narrowing or expanding the search criteria is easy, resulting in exactly what we were looking for. This has saved us with claims for collections, as well as a couple of legal HR matters. It is my trusted go to application.

Well suited - 1. Quick archival esp in Google workspace apps. Very easy to archive and store important conversations, chats, etc. 2. Search and eDiscovery - Very important feature. Less appropriate - 1. Export - Very limited options and sometimes a cause of concern due to limited options post eDiscovery. 2. Integration - Very limited integration options and leads to the use of multiple alternatives or workspaces. 3. Archival post deletion - No option for this that leads to missing important elements sometimes.

      We only need support when initially setting it up. We really have not had to call for user or help support on this product. It has always worked and is always easy to use.

      The product is similar offering but it is already well integrated into the other g-suite products that we use. It works really well in terms of searching and indexing documents. Other products seemed more elaborate and were complex to implement and use. Since our use case was rather simpler data backup and retrieval, hence it seemed a good fit to implement

      Return on Investment

      Barracuda Networks, Inc.

      • We saw a significant reduction in storage of email data that was previously stored in PST files on local machines.
      • We can archive data for longer periods, which drives retention and email data storage needs.
      • This product gives us quick access and support for eDiscovery requests from legal departments.

      • Positive ROI- able to conveniently store and access files/data that otherwise would not have been as organized. Not only makes my day more efficient but leads to a better client experience.
      • Organized storage.
      • Easy interface once you get used it it- give it about a month.
