Barracuda Email Security Gateway

Good combination when using their other products like an incident response. When using automated workflows, this makes creating sender policies a breeze. Unfortunately, this can also be done too well as it may filter out valid emails and to resend or place them back into users' mailbox isn't an easy thing to do even if you attempt to resend through the Email Security Gateway.

FireEye Email Security

I would highly recommend FireEye Email Security to a colleague. The platform is good at eliminating malicious emails prior to delivery to the end-user. Detections exist across the URL, attachment, and embedded HTML levels. It is a strong platform.

Pros

Barracuda Email Security Gateway

  • ESS has a simple interface for both users and administrators.
  • The "Manage Quarantine" button in each email is a direct sign-on link, so users don't have to remember their password to manage their quarantine (this is GOLD, Jerry!).
  • The baseline functionality (catching spam/malware/phishing/malware attachments/malformed PDFs etc) is super-solid, with few false positives and few false negatives.
Bear Golightly | TrustRadius Reviewer

FireEye Email Security

  • Blocking URL-based threats using FAUDE features.
  • Post threat detection via the Retroactive feature.
  • Excellent sandboxing analysis performance and detailed dynamic analysis reports.

Cons

Barracuda Email Security Gateway

  • You need to take time in adding your contacts to a whitelist so that you don't miss an email.
  • I recommend changing the time interval; Barracuda notifies you that you have quarantined emails as we were only getting 1 per day and we missed some urgent emails.
  • The quarantine folder is web based, we'd prefer it to have been an add-in for Outlook.

FireEye Email Security

  • The interface is not exactly intuitive.
  • There are a high number of false positives.
  • To my knowledge, there is not a way to whitelist links or attachments.

So far we have had limited problems the one's we have had we can attribute to poor user judgement not our gateway failing. One of the best features is the Barracuda is intuitive to choices we make on blocking or rejecting emails which is a great feature. lessens are need to repetitively enter the same information

FireEye Email Security is the most effective email security solution for protecting enterprises from APT. It is not complicated to set up and you can ride a wave of continuous security effects for a long time without major changes after the initial setup. It's automated, so users don't have to care too much about it. In addition, it provides detailed analysis data, so you can utilize it for 3rd party solutions if you want.

Availability is robust and flawless. This is a non-issue, its always up & running and fail-over protection is available for restarts or upgrades.

The WebUI is the only piece I find lacking on the Barracuda ESK. Its is not the fastest and is fairly utilitarian in its approach. The Outlook plug-in, while not in wide use here, causes zero slowdown in Outlook or the Barracuda ESG.

Barracuda customer support is great. Most of the time when I can an actual tech support representative answers, not some person that will just take a message. If one is not available I will receive a call back in a very short time.

In the years we have had this service, we haven't needed much help (which is a testament to the ease of use/reliability of the product) but when we have they have been probably the best vendor I've ever dealt with when it comes to quickly addressing support call issues. We also have a very readily available engineer that has been quick to help with more complex requests.

Alternatives Considered

Barracuda Email Security Gateway

Barracuda integrates well with Office 365 and mail flow is great. It was the first solution we found that was part of a greater suite to fit all the requirements we had. With the Email Security gateway being in the cloud, it required no extra hardware but also nothing new installed on an endpoint as some solutions require.
Justin Graves | TrustRadius Reviewer

FireEye Email Security

There are a few things FireEye Email Security does better than ProofPoint and vice versa. For example, you would think blocking .html attachments would be trivial. FireEye Email Security can be configured to do it. Proofpoint can not, and if you try to configure it, HTML gets stripped from the email content, which has a major impact on the business. On the other hand, ProofPoint has a number of additional features and bells and whistles that FireEye Email Security does not.

Return on Investment

Barracuda Email Security Gateway

  • Allows us to set it and forget it. We don't have to worry about patch or upgrade to a newer version. Barracuda does it all for us.
  • DLP has been great. That's a risk which is hard to monitor but Barracuda does it effortlessly.
Rick Sherman | TrustRadius Reviewer

FireEye Email Security

  • It's been positive in the sense that it has blocked some malicious email that would have otherwise made it to our users.
  • It has been negative in the sense that we spend a higher-than-expected number of cycles dealing with false positives.
  • Another negative is that we also experience false negatives.
