Barracuda Email Security Gateway Review

Very strong anti-spamming and anti-phishing features


What is our primary use case?

We have almost 600 users using Veeam Backup which is secured through Barracuda Email Security gateway. We are resellers of Barracuda. 

What is most valuable?

The anti-spamming and anti-phishing features are great. They're really strong and stable in this solution.

What needs improvement?

The DMARC security is somewhat weak and could be strengthened. Email classification is not directly integrated with Barracuda Email Security and that kind of classification would be helpful. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is scalable. As mentioned, we have close to 600 users. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This solution is stable and reliable. 

How are customer service and technical support?

We contacted technical support during implementation. They were responsive. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was a bit complex but the Barracuda team helped us configure it very well.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I'm not sure of the actual cost but the license fees are based on a per user annual basis. 

What other advice do I have?

For any user receiving compromising third-party emails, Barracuda will help secure the system. 

I rate this solution a nine out of 10.
