Whenever we needed to clear up any doubts or report a technical problem with some functionality of the barracuda solution, we were attended to immediately and with great precision in the answers. They explained well and resolved doubts quickly. I believe that they are well trained and ready to help customers.

I have not had to use customer support yet which goes to show the effectiveness of the program. It also shows how easy the program is to use for the average person with no experience using this type of program. Our IT department also does a great job at teaching us to detect emails with malware that in combination with this software issues rarely arise even though we have over 500 employees.

I've only had to contact support once since we've been using Barracuda Essentials and the support was excellent! Quick response and a very qualified support representative to assist me with my setup. In the end, my issue was with my domain host and not with Barracuda Essentials but the support representative worked with me to get things resolved and working.

This is the best tool in the industry. It provides the best support on top of the product. If one has any trouble configuring things or troubleshooting things, Barracuda's support is renowned for resolving bugs and issues as well as assisting troubleshooting and fixing issues. I would highly recommend it as it covers all email security bases.
