Barracuda Sentinel

I am not sure how I can put this any more clearly, until we deployed this product we were swamped by phishing and spear-phishing attacks. After testing the free version, I had all the info I needed to sell this to my boss; the product ID'd users and it started blocking attempts. I walked in with a stack of 60+ blocks and told my boss, "we need this." She agreed to pay for it and overnight our phishing and spear-phishing attempts dropped by 75%+. From where we were, to where we are now, with the AI learning our users and our environment, these attempts have dropped by 90-95%+. An amazing product.

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

It would be well suited in an environment where most all your endpoints are Windows-based computers, as Windows Defender is already built into the operating system, so there is no client to have to worry about installing. It also will make the management of endpoints easier on the server side, if most all machines are Windows-based.It might be less of ideal solution if a company/organization were looking for something more robust, or had a lot more features/configuration settings. It also might be less ideal for a company/organization that was looking for a product that didn't have a high detection rate of false positives

Cons

Barracuda Sentinel

  • The product is pretty solid so I am not sure how it can be improved. One thing I noticed recently, I am not getting the emails back from Sentinel when I send in a "miss". Used to be I got an email back saying "sorry we missed this, we are improving." That does happen anymore, so I am assuming that when I send a miss, the AI is getting better.
  • I would expand this to cover all kinds of email fraud like ransomware and spam rather than creating another product.

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

  • Deployment: We've had some issues deploying, especially outside of the Windows environment.
  • Offboarding: There is currently no way to delete a computer. They disappear over time. We even renamed a computer, and it kept both the old and new name in there. Eventually, the older machines do go away, but there is no manual way to do this at the moment.

I've not yet had the need to contact Barracuda for support of Sentinel. The product is very easy to use and needs no real setup. However, knowing how Barracuda support works in other areas of their products, I'm sure any Sentinel support would be expertly handled.

I gave it a 7 out of 10 as I feel that there is still a lot of room for improvement. I remember how back in the day the software was looked down upon because of it being an unreliable and inefficient antivirus. But, Microsoft has really put in the hard work and made it worthy for it to be comparable to all the other security services out there.

My firm has a Barracuda Back-up 490 and a Barracuda Web Filter. In a previous life, the firm I worked for, were Barracuda resellers, I know the quality of the products from the sales side, the training side, the support side, and the user side. We were posed with Barracuda vs. Mimecast. In the end, Barracuda won because of the reputation of the product, the company, and its people. Another big piece of the choice was the ability to "test drive" the product, testing gave me concrete data with which to the sell the product to my management. We are looking to expand this footprint to one of our sister companies now. Wasn't even a competition really. The other thing in retrospect? The installation was seamless and took no time. All we had to do was develop a 1-pager to send to staff warning them of the change, the emails they might see, and how to self administer the client.

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

MS ATP is lower on system resources and enables us to stretch out our endpoint hardware for an additional year. Also, MS ATP being an MS product fits in very nicely into MS remote management software and MS operating system. We have had little to no issues when hotfixes and roll updates are deployed, unlike 3rd party AV providers that we had experience with in the past.

Return on Investment

Barracuda Sentinel

  • Less administration time to check suspicious logins
  • AI works very well. No false positives
  • It is an addon. It improves your security but will not stop all threats
IGNACE QUAGHEBEUR | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

  • A positive impact has been to increase productivity for IT staff, as it saves them time from having to install/configure clients on every endpoint.
  • Another positive impact has been on the user/client side, as it helps the user to increase their productivity with working on their computer, as the Windows Defender client uses little resources to run on the system, and has a tendecy to not slowdown systems
