Modern attacks are rapidly growing in volume and sophistication. New malware strains are designed to evade traditional detection techniques and are often propagated through targeted, zero-hour attacks. And these new malware variants are appearing faster and in greater number than ever before — new ransomware variants alone are predicted to appear at a rate of more than 200 per quarter for the foreseeable future. Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection is an integrated cloud-based service that analyzes traffic across all of the major threat vectors. Stopping advanced threats from reaching your users and data requires a layered defense. In a 2016 independent test conducted by MRG Effitas and AV-Comparatives, the Barracuda NextGen Firewall, with Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection technology enabled, was the only solution tested to achieve 100-percent effectiveness, along with a zero-percent rate of false positives.

State-of-the-art technologies efficiently and reliably protect your network, users, and data from advanced threats. Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection multi-layer defense pre-filters possible threats by using increasingly sophisticated analysis, to optimize efficiency and ensure rapid response to any type of attack without compromising network performance or security policies. Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection maintains a massive database of known threat signatures that is used to detect and block any known threat. Whenever a new threat is identified, its signature is immediately added to the database and shared across all our security products and subscribers in real-time. Any email or data that is not blocked at Layer-1 is then subjected to behavioral and heuristic analysis at Layer-2. In this layer, questionable code and scripts are analyzed in a controlled environment. This layer looks for suspicious activities such as replication, file overwrites, and obfuscation attempts.

Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection — Global Threat Intelligence Network

Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection leverages a global threat intelligence network that ingests vast amounts of diverse threat information from more than fifty million collection points around the world. These include more than 250,000 deployed Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection endpoints; honeypots, or decoys intended to attract the attention of threat actors and criminals; autonomous crawlers, bots that travel the internet actively seeking out new threats; third-party malware submissions; and analysis by Barracuda Labs. All this information comes together to create the most up-to-date possible view of the threat environment. This is shared in real-time with all Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection deployments with Advanced Threat Protection enabled — giving you the best protection against advanced threats in the industry.

Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection —  Layer Protection

Barracuda maintains a massive database of known threat signatures that is used to detect and block any known threat. Whenever a new threat is identified, its signature is immediately added to the database and shared across all our security products and subscribers in real-time. Any email or data that is not blocked at Layer-1 is then subjected to behavioral and heuristic analysis at Layer-2. In this layer, questionable code and scripts are analyzed in a controlled environment. This layer looks for suspicious activities such as replication, file overwrites, and obfuscation attempts. Static code analysis examines parts of any executable file to find questionable code without actually executing the code. This layer is a fast and highly effective method of pre-filtering malware before sending questionable files on to the final, sandboxing layer. The final layer of analysis is a comprehensive CPU emulation-based sandbox that detonates any suspect files that have survived the previous layers.

Office 365

Prepare your network by ensuring it will support the high-speed internet connections that Office 365 expects and that you can manage bandwidth on a per-user, per application basis. During your migration phase — which may be weeks or months, and may be a staged migration or even a hybrid where you combine on-premises Exchange servers with Exchange Online — how do you continue to support and manage users in both worlds, and to whom should you turn for the outside services necessary for a clean and efficient migration.

Once in Office 365, assuring total email security, achieving robust compliance and discovery, securing your most sensitive and critical data, and providing backups so you can restore data losses due to human errors or network glitches. Our solutions work whether you’re still on-premises and considering a move to Office 365, if you are in the middle of a migration to Office 365, or if you’re already operating in the cloud and want to improve your security and productivity. They can be deployed on-premises, in virtual environments, or in the cloud.
