It does its job by stopping everything that's spam and phishing. Which is one of the reasons we got it. It's also a great way of archiving old emails and searching for them anywhere. We are also using it to backup our SharePoint data. Which is great.

It's easy to deploy and configure. Does a great job showing what's been blocked and what's been delivered to the end user. Easy to search emails after you find the delivery log. It takes some time and it would be great if accessing the log was as easy as selecting a tab at the top of the page.

We currently use this product, and absolutely love it. It's saved us a lot of time and reduced a lot of space on the Exchange server/email server. If someone needs an old email that Outlook can't find, you'll bet your bottom dollar that it will find that email from way back. And, may I add, any time we've encountered the need for speaking to an Engineer at Barracuda, we get a call ASAP in 5-15 minutes. This is stellar on their part, keep it up.

It has problems and throws inconvenience to users when migrating from a mobile device to windows, making the installation and its use inside the computer affected by problems of downloading, installing or starting the product.

The Barracuda Email Security gateway is very easy to manage and does not need constant babysitting. The system learns what types of scams are currently seen and blocks them through specific algorithms. The gateway also has a heuristic feature where it can learn what types of emails your organization receives and filter based on the learning. I have managed other spam filters and highly recommend the Barracuda due to ease of use.

Barracuda Email Security Service is well suited for a larger business environment or a Managed Service Provider who supports multiple clients. Barracuda Email Security Service would not be well suited for a small environment or a small business. It would be way too much for a small business and it wouldn't be utilized to its full potential.

Barracuda Email Security Service is well suited for the small & medium business. Phishing and malware intrusions are being blocked immensely, which is lessening the strain on our AV. This is no substitute but a great item to team on your network. We have been using our Barracuda Email Security Gateway for years, it provides a good level of mail filtering, with a easy to use interface. Never had any problems with up time, and processes around 10k mails a day.

This is a great product for a small IT department. It helps eliminate both spam and virus. It changes all links in an email to links running through the barracuda for security. Don't get me wrong, you will still get spam but a lot of it will be blocked. With a small IT department, you can set it up and let it run with minimal administration.

Barracuda is extremely well suited at stopping spam/phishing/ransomware attacks via email. It is also clever enough to know if you get an 'internal' email which has originated from the outside by someone masking their email address and stopping these getting through.

If you want a system that can be up and running in very little time, comes with fast controls to block a large majority of spam, and keeps itself updated constantly to ensure it is able to detect the latest spam - then Barracuda ESS is for you.

If you're OK with an occasional administrative portal glitch or some setup time in whitelist/blacklisting entries that are missed by the main filter, then Barracuda ESS is for you.

Barracuda Email Security Service (ESS) is very well suited for the small and medium business market where you do not require advanced features. Other services provide more functionality in terms of encryption and archiving, especially with respect to legal requirements for mail retention and holding pens for mail if your delivery service fails.
