Return on Investment

  • The cost of ESS for our organization is tiny compared to the amount of money we would lose if even one virus-laden PDF slipped through
  • Ignoring genuine malware/phishing, the cost of ESS for our organization is tiny compared to the amount of money we save by blocking regular spam (so employees don't ever see it)
  • From an administrator's perspective, putting the reins in the hands of our employees so they can look at their own quarantine (and leave IT out of it) has saved us 💵DOLLA 💸DOLLA💵BILLS 💸Y'ALL💵

  • Allows us to set it and forget it. We don't have to worry about patch or upgrade to a newer version. Barracuda does it all for us.
  • DLP has been great. That's a risk which is hard to monitor but Barracuda does it effortlessly.

  • The gateway learns current scam which can prevent unmeasureable damage. As a government organization attacks on our network affect public safety.
  • Previous gateways I have managed have required significant amounts of time grooming. The Barracuda gateway has freed up a great deal of my time due to its intelligence and intent scanning.
  • I have very few incidences where a legitimate malicious email will pass through the filter. Just one of these emails can wreak havoc on an organization.

Return on Investment

  • Barracuda helps to make the business operate at a safer level. It has definately helped by stopping ransomware emails so it has saved time for the IT department who don't have to put out comms to tell users not to open certain emails received.
  • Having the ability to whitelist and blacklist emails lets us control the flow of our inboxes.
  • In the beginning of use spend time configuring it to business needs so you do not miss that all important email that was deemed as spam.

Return on Investment

  • We evaluated several services when we were looking for a cloud based filtering program. Barracuda was clearly the most economical. Our cost was about 1/3 of what it would have been had we gone with our second choice.
  • Our users are more productive since they spend less time wading though unwanted emails. Barracuda is filtering out about 97% of emails sent to us, albeit with a few false positives.

Return on Investment

  • Positive: The service provides tremendous value with all features built-in.
  • Positive: Superior scanning technology including AntiVirus and Advanced Threat Protection.
  • Negative: Minimum number of users for licensing is 10. Small companies will need to pay a bit extra until they reach 10 users.
