    Cons

    Barracuda Networks, Inc.

    • 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.

        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.

        Alternatives Considered

        Barracuda Networks, Inc.

        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.
