    Barracuda Essentials

    The Barracuda Essentials solution is definitely a great alternative to network security and especially corporate email to prevent employees from clicking on malicious links, spam, phishing, trojans and ransonware. The solution today is implemented in almost all sectors of the company and we have control of everything and good protection guaranteeing principles of compliance and security.

    NeoCertified Secure Email

    NeoCertified Secure Email is very easy to use, and the speed of the encryption is excellent. The only challenge we have had is some of the national carriers are unfamiliar with NeoCertified Secure Email and thus sometimes give us some resistance in our utilizing it.

    Pros

    Barracuda Essentials

    • Barracuda Essentials Spam Filtering works and it is very easy to add or remove senders from the Spam filter lists.
    • Barracuda Essentials provides excellent protection from Phishing and other Malware.
    • Barracuda Essentials email encryption is so easy to use and easy to setup. Our users love it.

    NeoCertified Secure Email

    • Easily works with our Outlook email system.
    • Those receiving our secure emails find it easy to set up a user name and password to access and open and attach and send back.
    • Whenever help is needed they respond quickly.

    Cons

    Barracuda Essentials

    • Encryption is always on. There's NO way to turn it off so false encryption leads to real issues. Many banks and other companies cannot read/accept encrypted email. There should be a "Do Not Encrypt" type of keyword to prevent encryption (competing products have this).
    • There's no indication an email was encrypted (like with Proofpoint or ZIX mail).
    • MSP management interface needs work. You have to request licenses by email and wait. Pretty archaic today. Most competing product sites let MSP's increase/decrease licensing as needed, immediately.

    NeoCertified Secure Email

    • Perhaps in having additional service techs
    • Everyone always wants better pricing but they are competitive in their field
    • Better public recognition of NeoCertified Secure Email

    Barracuda Essentials is simple to use. It has a user dashboard that is simple to navigate even for those who have few computer skills. One can barely realize that the program is even running in the background heading off those emails that can cause damage to my computer or our overall system.

    This is the best tool in the industry. It provides the best support on top of the product. If one has any trouble configuring things or troubleshooting things, Barracuda's support is renowned for resolving bugs and issues as well as assisting troubleshooting and fixing issues. I would highly recommend it as it covers all email security bases.

    Alternatives Considered

    Barracuda Essentials

    Essentials is far more user-friendly - far more customizable and seems to perform better than ATP. We used ATP for a while and found it a bit clunky and the user interface not as easy to use as Barracuda's. The easy to use GUI interface of Barracuda was one of the factors (in many) that swayed us to use Essentials.
    Peter Robinson | TrustRadius Reviewer

    NeoCertified Secure Email

    The cost and ease of use was the determining factors.

    Return on Investment

    Barracuda Essentials

    • Barracuda Essentials has had a very positive impact especially since the Pandemic with many remote workers. Our IT objective is 99.9% uptime with many redundancy fail safes in place. Barracuda Essentials helps meet that objective by protecting the vast amount of email we receive daily.

    NeoCertified Secure Email

    • It solves my number 1 problem...staying compliant with the security rules and regulations that my industry imposes.
    • It gives peace of mind to my clients that their personal information is secured. This is an easy step in customer service that goes above and beyond what many offer. Trust is a huge issue for clients, we have our clients trust that we will always be looking out for their best interest, including securing our correspondence that includes private information.
