  • Barracuda Essentials has had a very positive impact especially since the Pandemic with many remote workers. Our IT objective is 99.9% uptime with many redundancy fail safes in place. Barracuda Essentials helps meet that objective by protecting the vast amount of email we receive daily.

  • We were paying more just for an Email Encryption tool before moving to Essentials.
  • The price is lower than other like tools, but we got more in the offerings with Essentials.
  • We saw an overall savings shortly after installation as we were able to replace backup and archive tools as well.
