Barracuda Spam Firewall
The Barracuda Spam Firewall is an integrated hardware and software solution for complete protection of your email server. It provides a powerful, easy to use, and affordable solution to eliminating spam and virus from your organization.
Powerful, Enterprise-Class Solution
A single Barracuda Spam Firewall handles up to 25,000 active email users and 25 million email messages per day. The Barracuda Spam Firewall is a powerful, enterprise-class solution. Multiple units can be clustered together for even greater capacity and high availability.
The Barracuda Spam Firewall design leverages open source virus and spam solutions in conjunction with ten defense layers:
- Denial of service and security protection
- IP block list
- Rate control
- Virus check with archive decompression
- Barracuda virus check
- User-specified rules
- Spam fingerprint check
- Intention analysis
- Bayesian analysis
- Rule-based scoring
The Barracuda Spam Firewall architecture optimizes the processing of each email for the performance to process millions of messages per day. Unlike software solutions, the Barracuda Spam Firewall reduces the load placed on the email server by off-loading both spam and virus filtering.
Easy to Use
With no software to install and no modifications required to existing email systems, installation of the Barracuda Spam Firewall is quick and easy. Once installed, the system administrator uses the intuitive web interface for monitoring and maintenance. Maintenance is minimal, especially with the help of Energize Updates. These updates, automatically retrieved by the Barracuda Spam Firewall, enable maximum spam and virus protection at all times while eliminating administrative overhead. Updates are provided by Barracuda Central where engineers work around the clock monitoring the Internet for trends in spam and virus threats.
With no per user license fee, the Barracuda Spam Firewall is the most affordable enterprise-class spam and virus protection solution available.
