Barracuda Essentials Pros and Cons

Barracuda Essentials Pros

Network Administrator at BROCKPORT CENTRAL SCHOOL DISTRICT
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.

Sometimes it is somewhat laggy, especially on the Archiver side. It should have improved performance on their Message Archiver.

I would like to see some additional functionality in terms of employee monitoring, as part of a work-from-home security solution.
