Overall Satisfaction with Barracuda Essentials

Our previous email security was through Microsoft's Office 365. This was deficient in many ways. Far too many phishing attempts and spam emails were making it through their filters. Microsoft's safe sender list is a joke, they decide what is worth considering as safe regardless of what you say. Barracuda Essentials was a welcome and well worth [adding] to our security. We have felt far more secure since implementation.
