IT Central Station is now PeerSpot: Here's why

Barracuda Essentials Primary Use Case

Brian Lippold - PeerSpot reviewer

The primary use is to back up our Office 365. It also comes with email security and the Message Archiver. Our Office 365 backup is probably the most important piece and the Message Archiver is the second most important piece. It archives every email that comes in, it's not a backup type of an archive. You can use it for a backup, but it doesn't put it in folders, it's not for restoring someone's mailbox. It's just for searching for emails in case there's some type of litigation that requires us to retrieve someone's email messages.

Barracuda Essentials is used for anyone that wants to protect their email. It helps with protecting against spam, malware, and encrypting your email messages. This is an option with all the email messages. They have other add-ons which use artificial intelligence to protect you against fishing attempts. 

They have employee training against email phishing attempts. There are nice packages of other options that can be added to Barracuda Essentials.
