Barracuda Email Security Gateway

The Barracuda Email Security Gateway is a robust and feature rich platform, does the job it's supposed to do and integrates into existing networks easily. It is not cheap, but valuable performance never is. It is one of the truly "set it and forget it" appliances in my tool set.

SpamTitan Email Security

SpamTitan is well suited for anyone looking to reduce the amount of spam they receive and reduce the risk of virus emails making it to unsuspecting inboxes. There really aren't any situations where SpamTitan is not a good option. The spam it filters is truly spam, not mass emails or promotions, only the shady medical scams or princes who won money.

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.

  • Easy to view and release messages that are not actually spam

  • Settings are easily customized

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.

SpamTitan Email Security

  • Quarantine email is only sent once a day
  • Payments and billing are confusing and not clear
  • Sometimes whitelisted emails still get caught in spam

The WebUI leaves a bit to be desired, it is utilitarian in nature. Operationally it just works. Install. Setup, wall away knowing your protected.

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.

SpamTitan's support is very responsive. We have had very few interactions with them but each time, they responded quickly and resolved the issues promptly.

We selected SpamTitan many years ago, so nothing sticks out as to why we selected them versus the competition. They have been very good since then so we have not evaluated the competition recently.

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.

SpamTitan Email Security

  • It clears up clutter from our inboxes allowing email to be more efficient
  • Price is based on a range of users so it doesn't change if you have to add or remove users
