Barracuda Essentials enables customers to safely, efficiently, and economically adopt Office 365 by protecting users from dangerous ransomware and phishing attacks. It minimizes downtime, ensuring compliance retention, and enabling recovery of Exchange Online, OneDrive and Sharepoint Online data giving users peace of mind and complete protection in their Office 365 environment.
Today’s IT professionals need an easy-to-manage email security solution that protects against phishing, malware, and ransomware. Along with multi-layer email security, the Barracuda Email Security Service provides email continuity and data loss prevention. Advanced Threat Protection is also included with Barracuda’s Email Security Service, which sandboxes suspicious email attachments and scans them for malware. Link protection redirects suspicious and typosquatted URLs so malware is never inadvertently downloaded by recipients.
Barracuda Cloud Email Archiving Service integrates with Office 365 to create a cloud based, indexed archive allowing granular retention policies, extensive search, auditing/ permissions, legal hold, and export helping to facilitate eDiscovery and retention. Litigation holds preserve email from being tampered with until the litigation hold expires or is removed. Native and mobile apps provide intuitive interfaces that simplify search to ensure messages are found easily even when email services are unavailable.
While Office 365 is a great option for companies wanting highly scalable and redundant architectures to mitigate natural and mechanical failures, there are inherent risks associated with cloud-hosted data. Human-caused data loss – be it intentional or accidental – still exists as data can still be permanently deleted from cloud applications. Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup for Microsoft Office 365 protects Exchange Online mailboxes, SharePoint Online, as well as OneDrive for Business files and folders ensuring recovery in the event of accidental or malicious deletion.
