Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
It is an excellent, intelligent solution that provides maximum security from email attacks.This solution has helped to significantly reduce the amount of junk email that we receive.This appliance has helped in that we now eliminate the thousands of scams, spam, and malware emails that are destined for our users.Before this solution, we didn't have any separate feature for protecting our emails. We used to only have a firewall but now we have email security. It has a graphical interface and we can see the log every time. We can see that the performance is fine.With the cloud service, one of the nice things about Barracuda is the quarantine service. It gives the ability for our users to go in and check what has been quarantined, and then connect with our IT staff to release anything that should be fine so that we can test it before we release.

Cons
The technical support is not available globally 24/7 and this is the biggest problem with the product.The reports are standard, and it would be nice to be able to customize them.Two improvements that are needed include an enhancement in the proxy feature, as well as the ability to more fully automate patches and updates.We had an incident where we didn't want to receive any emails or spam from a certain site and email address. We selected the mail ID, and we send it to Barracuda for analysis to see if it's spam or something like that. As of now, we haven't gotten any update or notification as to what happened with it.There's a bit of configuration work that's needed with the DNS service provider, but other than that, everything else should be very smooth.
