We use the email security gateway with Microsoft 365 exchange. It is the email security for inbound and outbound emails. With Security gateway, we can apply policies and rules to filter spam and malicious messages and it does ATP. It addresses security concerns and compliance concerns. We also use a security gateway for DLP and appending taglines and footers to outbound messages.

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.

Our entire organization consisting of Police, Fire, Public Works, IT, Community Development, Park, etc., are affected by the use of our Barracuda Email Gateway. We have been using our appliance and recently cloud service for around 10 years. The gateway helps remove nearly all malicious messages including phishing.

We currently use this product and absolutely love it. It's saved us a lot of time and saved a lot of space on the Exchange server/email server. If someone needs an old email that Outlook can't find, Barracuda will find that email from way back.

Barracuda Email Security Service (ESS) is the anti-spam, anti-phishing, and general anti-bad stuff product in use by the entire organization since early 2017. The heuristics, content/sender policies and sandboxing help us solve the complex problem of "how do you stop the entire Internet from trying to kill you and/or rob you via email?"

Barracuda Email Security Service is being used by our organization as an Email spam filter, as well as handling everything related to regional policies, sender policies, inbound and outbound settings. It is also being used to scan attachments using the ATP scanning capability. We also are implementing the content policies as well.

We are currently using it for the whole organization. We recently upgraded and added more services like Barracuda Sentinel. We addressed the phishing issues that our exec teams were experiencing. We are now backing up everything. Including MS OneDrive. Searching in the Cloud is so much quicker now.

Barracuda Email Security Service is utilized across the enterprise. All email coming in or out go through Barracuda to be scanned for viruses, DLP, spam, phishing campaigns, and malware. The best part is Barracuda manages the service so any updates are done by them. We set the aggression level and let it do its job. We are pleased with the product and service which is why we are a multi year user.

Barracuda is currently used to filter our emails, both inbound and outbound. It helps us eliminate the hundreds of thousands of spam, scams, and malware coming in to our email users. Without it our users email inboxes would be so full of junk that we could not carry on business in an very efficient way at all.

We use Barracuda to screen our email before it reaches the employees inboxes. It is being used organisation wide to offer full protection. We use it to protect us against phishing scams, viruses and ransom wear. It also helps to clear up unwanted emails that make it through the Office 365 spam filters.

Barracuda ESS is used throughout our entire organization as the main protection again malware and spam. Prior to this we utilized Trendmicro, which we found did not grab as many messages as expected, leaving a lot of spam and malicious emails to come through our network and to our users.

We use Barracuda Email Security Gateway. We use both cloud and a local virtual appliance. This is being used by our entire company. All of our inbound and outbound filters go through the gateways. Inbound goes through both and outbound only goes out the local virtual appliance. This reduces spam that our users receive.

When we decided to switch to Office 365 we decided we wanted to add an additional service for email security. All of our incoming mail goes to the Barrcauda ESS first, before going to out Office 365 tenant for delivery. The email for all our users goes through the service.

We utilize the Barracuda ESS across our whole organization to minimize not only SPAM, viruses threats, email spoofing, phishing but as well as an additional layer of protection with its spooling feature. The portal allows for a great ability in troubleshooting NDR's and the like. This allows us to minimize any business disruptions from undeliverable false positives and any important deferred messages.

Barracuda Email Security Services are in use by my company with the online Essentials flavor. It has been implemented by a number of my clients with the Essentials or the on-premises options. Both options include inbound and outbound spam filtering as well as options for content filtering and outbound encryption services. The entire organization's email goes through this system and several departments utilize the outbound encryption for secure transmission.
