IT Central Station is now PeerSpot: Here's why

Barracuda Email Security Gateway Primary Use Case

Mohammed Shah Newaj - PeerSpot reviewer
Assistant General Manager at CoLoCity Data Center

We use Barracuda Email Security Gateway and also provide it for our customers to reduce incoming spam. It provides security for email delivery from our customer sites and also our sites. Most of our clients, who get a lot of spam, manage their own email server, but they do not have a dedicated spam filter or email security gateway. As a result, they get a lot of spam. Because of this, they end up searching for a solution that they can use. They do not want to buy a dedicated solution. Instead, they want to use a subscription option.

In our VM, we provide a subscription model. People are server scraping to us for incoming and outgoing purposes. 

This is an on-premise solution in our data center. We provide it to our remote customers as a hosted service.

This is a virtual appliance installed within a server. The VM is installed within the Hyper-V Server.

The solution is the first security layer for emails that come into our network, and we use it to filter all spam, phishing emails, and malware that come in via email.

We are now using the virtual appliance in our VMware environment.

The solution is primarily for email security. For example, if an email comes through, we need to know what sort of email it is. We have enabled the SPF and the DMARC on it. We've also enabled those security elements so that it has some threat prevention before any unsolicited email comes to our gateway. This basically does all the filtering, before we actually receive an email. There are a number of undeliverable emails we get in our inboxes. In that event, if we are not able to see these emails, we can always log onto the Barracuda Gateway to actually see the emails to say whether they're valid or not. If the authenticity of the email is revealed, we are able to release them.

CIO at a government with 51-200 employees

This solution is my spam filter and it's tied to my exchange server. All SMTP traffic goes through Barracuda. I've just started using their cloud service and I'm looking possibly at their firewall solutions also because I can tie all these things together in the cloud. We are customers of Barracuda and I work as CIO at a municipality in the States.

Barracuda Email Security Gateway is used to protect users' email inboxes from malicious threats coming from outside of the network. For example, it can be a malicious link or some malware as an attachment. If these threats are sent to our users, then it blocks and deletes the email.

It is useful for a medium-sized business. It is not useful for large enterprise solutions. It's made for small networks with fewer mailboxes.
