Today we’re excited to share the news about our three new Email Protection plans, which scale to meet customers’ evolving threat protection needs. Our comprehensive solutions combine gateway and API-based AI technology to detect and remediate threats and reduce the risk that a malicious attack succeeds by immediately and automatically eliminating the user’s ability to view or open flagged emails.
Barracuda has designed these plans to better align with customer needs and buying preferences based on research. We’re even more excited about the benefits the new Email Protection packages will bring to customers. We got input from executives, partners, and customers for a closer look at the top ways the packages will help businesses.
Top benefits for customers
1. Threat prevention
Barracuda Email Protection helps customers prevent attacks from getting through by combining email-gateway defenses, API-based inbox defense, and web security.
“Email attacks are getting more sophisticated, so we expanded our Advanced Email Security test to include threats like business email compromise this year,” said Simon Edwards, SE Labs founder. “Addressing these types of targeted attacks was a strength for Barracuda, which helped it stand out as Best Email Security Service, based on our intelligence-led testing.”
2. Post-delivery detection and response
“With threats mounting and talent pools short, customers need partners in security that understand not every organization will want to respond to email incidents the same way. We’re really looking forward to using incident response automated workflows from Barracuda, so we can build a playbook that meets our specific needs for individual use cases,” said Nathan Dube, Viant Medical.
3. Data protection
Barracuda Email Protection makes it easy for customers to ensure compliance and stay productive during downtime. They can also back up important Office 365 email and data to recover easily from malware attacks or lost data.
“Data is the most valuable asset that most organizations have, so protecting it from malicious and accidental loss should be a priority,” said Don MacLennan, SVP, Engineering & Product Management, Email Protection. “Data protection should be part of your email security and incident recovery strategy. That’s why we include it the new Premium Plus package, making it easy for organizations to take the next step in their email protection journey.”
4. Comprehensive solution for Office 365 that is easy to buy, deploy and use
At Barracuda, we believe every business deserves access to cloud-enabled, enterprise-grade security solutions that are easy to buy, deploy, and use. These new Email Protection plans further that commitment by bringing customers a comprehensive solution for Office 365.
“We’re excited about Barracuda’s integrated approach to Email Protection. The new plans include all the necessary capabilities that customers need to protect against email threats,” said James Range, President, White Rock Cybersecurity. “We see these new SaaS plans as an easy, straightforward way to get customers the Office 365 protection they need in a single cloud-based solution.”
