The Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall provides comprehensive protection against the
most current email-borne threats that can cripple your network if left unprotected.
With a proprietary twelve-layer defence system, the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall
optimises performance of your email server while utilizing the following protections:
Anti-spam. The algorithms and methods used by the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall
are the most comprehensive and most advanced in the industry at detecting and filtering
spam resulting in the lowest rate of false positives. Barracuda Networks Predictive
Sender Profiling looks beyond the reputation of the sender and digs deeper into the
spam campaign itself to identify anomalous activity.
Anti-virus. By utilizing triple layer virus blocking, decompression of archives
and file type blocking, the anti-virus engine in the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall
provides complete virus protection. When new spam and virus outbreaks occur, Barracuda
Real-Time Protection will block these threats in real-time.
Anti-spoofing. This technology prevents the use of forged or “spoofed” sender addresses
on unsolicited email. The anti-spoofing feature also allows larger organizations
to specify a list of IP addresses that are allowed to have a “From” address that
appears from inside the organization to support multiple sites and multiple email
Anti-phishing. The Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall provides robust protection against
phishing schemes which are often used to gather confidential information about an
organization or its individual users.
Anti-spyware. (Attachments) - All attachments are scanned and any spyware executables
are detected and eliminated immediately.
Denial of Service Protection. Rate controls are utilized to stop denial of service
attacks as well as dictionary based spam attacks. These rate control systems are
integrated and automatic in the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall.
