Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We now have a secondary backup of Office 365 that's much easier to retrieve compared to Microsoft. If someone deletes something in Office 365, we can get it back within Office 365, but it's difficult. Barracuda is much easier. There is a lot less management needed using Barracuda. The management becomes much easier for Office 365 and it's no longer on-prem, so there are fewer hours managing on-prem devices, servers, and things of that nature. We don't have network appliances anymore for the backup of our information.""The most valuable features of Barracuda Essentials are it's a trusted name and is rated very high on review sites. It blocks high percentages of spam and junk email and it's in the cloud. They have hardware appliances, but this is in the cloud. The solution is very effective at blocking malware and blocking spam and this is what we are looking for. There's not a whole lot of complexity, you want a solution that is very good at blocking out all of the unwanted emails.""The solution is straightforward to set up.""When we got the service, it included the email archiver with unlimited storage."

More Barracuda Essentials Cons →

"The integration needs to improve.""Dealing with personal information, such as documents that contain a personal number, personal ID or something like that should be improved. Sometimes it works poorly in that regard.""The file-level archiving is very important in Enterprise Vault 12 and this doesn't really exist in early versions.""I cannot perform application backup, and I am not able to repair the license."
