Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response

The Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response is best suited as an addition to the Barracuda Sentinel. After Barracuda Sentinel discovers a phishing email or account takeover, the Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response allows you to quickly dive into the details of the email(s) to determine if the email is legitimate or not. It does a very good job finding and deleting any and all emails related to the attack.

Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR

Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR is best suited for all the scenarios, except for OT or for devices that don't have internet connectivity. Especially for in-house or on-premises users, servers, roaming users, users working from home, or even users using their own devices, Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR can be the best fit as an endpoint protection suite and even as a replacement of current AV.

Cons

Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response

  • If you own the total security suite, the use of the app becomes less important
  • It would be nice to post a mail yourself in order to delete this mail from other mailboxes. If possible, it is not clear how to do this.

  • DLP features

The dashboard is intuitive and easy to use. One can create a remediation in a minute and have it deployed to remove a threatening email(s) in minutes, instead of hours, across your Exchange network.

Cortex has a beautiful dashboard that is fairly easy to configure once you understand how policies work. My suggestion would be to definitely watch some of their training videos on copying and modifying the default policies before attempting to set anything up. But once you know, it is easy. Using endpoint management software (SCCM/JAMF/etc) for deployment is a must.

Barracuda has always been known for its support team. I have experienced that if you ever have any questions, issues, or problems with any of the Barracuda software, their support team is always available to help resolve your issue.

Cortex XDR ranks high for its abilities in prevention. We do see malware that Cortex is able to stop that is undetected by Microsoft's endpoint protection. But it seems comparable products such as Crowdstrike may do better in providing details around alerts. Without this context we can't mount a more thorough response to alerts because we don't have the appropriate information to do so.

Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR

Compared to all other products, we shortlisted Sophos, Cortex, and CrowdStrike. We are utilizing all of them differently in our multiple divisions and segments to monitor user performance and activities and all the features of these solutions. To date, giving an honest review of Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR, it is a very stable product in terms of local agent software as well as its cloud console.

Return on Investment

Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response

  • It provides a uniform way of reporting bad mail.
  • Without scripting knowledge, you can eliminate bad mail from users mailboxes.
IGNACE QUAGHEBEUR | TrustRadius Reviewer

Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR

  • After putting Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR on a user's system, users came back with a positive response that there are no performance issues now.
  • We are able to track and control granular suspicious and malicious activities.
  • Web controls are missing, which if they would have been there would have been very helpful.
