Regarding usability, we like it to be an easy solution to implement and configure on the server. Routine backups are made frequently and reports are issued for control and analysis by information security teams. It has great integration with the cloud and encryption.

Barracuda Essentials is simple to use. It has a user dashboard that is simple to navigate even for those who have few computer skills. One can barely realize that the program is even running in the background heading off those emails that can cause damage to my computer or our overall system.

At first, things are not easy to navigate. Once you get used to, the overall usability is good. The Knowledge Base helps you navigate through the portal and support services is quick to assist when called upon.

There dashboard is a little busy as it includes features that you may not have purchased.

Barracuda Essentials is very easy to use since it really doesn't take any effort from the user other than clicking one button to send outgoing encrypted emails when needed. Management is very easy and there really isn't much to do other than add/remove email addresses and/or domains from the Spam filtering lists.
