Overall Satisfaction with Barracuda Web Security Gateway

Barracuda Web Security Gateway is employed by our IT team for all network users who have company email. It blocks email messages that may be insecure. The system is very sensitive in what it holds back from delivery, so it is important to check regularly. Anytime you start using a new site, the registration emails will get caught in the filter. Additionally, verification code emails will get caught.

Would you buy Barracuda Web Security Gateway again?

No

I've found Barracuda Web Security Gateway somehow catches safe emails while spam/junk emails still make their way to my inbox. I work in HR and I continue to receive phishing scam emails that impersonate actual employees. The emails are asking for financial/banking information and are fraudulent yet somehow they do not get filtered out in my experience.
