Barracuda was selected purely on a need and cost basis during the course our selection for an SEG. We needed a tool that could be set up fairly quickly and block and detect against spam and malicious emails. It did not compare in efficacy or ease of use to Mimecast, however it was chosen due to being a more effective price and having similar features.

Barracuda integrates well with Office 365 and mail flow is great. It was the first solution we found that was part of a greater suite to fit all the requirements we had. With the Email Security gateway being in the cloud, it required no extra hardware but also nothing new installed on an endpoint as some solutions require.

The Barracuda [Email Security Gateway] is cost comparative to the Sonicwall Email Security appliance but outperforms it in every scenario we tested. The Mimecast Security Email Gateway was not a good fit, had far too many "beta" quality features. The Cisco Email Security Appliance had complicated and much more expensive license requirements and did not offer a trial for testing. The Barracuda Email Security Gateway won hands down.

Through this application, I can keep my computer and system safe during its time of use and it is very helpful when detecting any threat as it has done in my system since its installation, I no longer have any problem due to the damage to my software since Barracuda protects my computer without any problem. In addition to everything with its functionalities, our company has been able to benefit successfully since our teams are in their most optimal operation, giving them better benefit and long duration and not worrying about any type of hacking, thanks to Barracuda we can be calm whenever we navigate in the network without being infected by malware.

Forcepoint Email Security, formerly Websense, had poor intent analysis and learning. I spent a large portion of my time tagging spam emails that were not blocked. Barracuda consistently improves their offering and stays current with trend of malicious messages.

We switched from an IronPort appliance to ESS in the cloud after evaluating several others, and have evaluated competitors at each renewal since then. The only services that come close are MimeCast and Proofpoint; if I were making the decision again today, it would definitely be a shootout between these three.

Office 365, while having a robust spam filter, is not as customizable or easy to use as Barracuda Email Security Service in my opinion. It is easier to recover email using Barracuda Email Security Service as well as finding messages that have been blocked. Support is much easier to use and they are way more helpful.

SonicWall servers kept failing after a year or two. Nothing worse than having to replace an entire server due to catastrophic failure. Trend Micro failed to meet expectations. It failed to block phishing campaigns and would let emails with suspicious links through. Barracuda removes those links from the email and then forwards it on to the recipient.

We compared both Barracuda and Mimecast, we discovered that there wasn't much between the two systems, there were pros and cons for both. In the end it came down to functionality and cost and Barracuda is more cost effective whilst still achieving the objectives we needed. Having got used to it we wouldn't be without it.

I inherited Barracuda Email Security Gateway when I started this job 1.5 years ago. My predecessors made a good choice with this product. I've been nothing but happy with it. The most I use of it is the message log to find emails for people. I don't have to dig into the exchange server because of the message log.

Mimecast is an excellent, versatile and full-featured product. However, it was significantly more costly than Barracuda ESS. If you need some of the advanced features from Mimecast and are able to justify the cost based upon those, you will not be disappointed. Microsoft offers add-ons to their Office 365 product, but we found the cost and efficacy of those add-ons not positive enough to consider using them.

Barracuda's product is superior in features as well as scanning technology to both alternatives.
