Barracuda Email Security Gateway Review

Barracuda Email Security Gateway is an email security platform designed to help companies in healthcare, retail, financial services and other industries filter inbound or outbound conversations and protect critical data from malware, phishing attacks and spam. The system decompresses archives, encrypts messages and scans emails for viruses across multiple layers. The software supports Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)-256 and Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) to protect email conversations. The platform combines heuristic, behavioral and sandboxing features to protect corporate data from targeted attacks. Organizations can use predefined filters and custom policies to block or encrypt messages and detect confidential information.


We look at how to release an item from quarantine, how to check message logs to see if you are missing an email or if something has been blocked, and how to edit notification emails with this archiving program:


  • Advanced threat protection: software combines behavioral, heuristic, and sandboxing technologies to protect against zero hour and targeted attacks. ATP automatically scans email attachments in real-time; suspicious attachments are detonated in a sandbox environment to observe behavior
  • Email spooling: the platform ensures that email can still be delivered even during email server failures or loss of connectivity. In the event of on-premises disruptions, email can be spooled in the Cloud Protection Layer (CPL) for up to 96 hours. An alternate destination can also be specified if delivery to the primary destination fails
  • Spam protection: with a long-standing heritage in spam protection, the solution remains the leader in identifying and blocking spam. A comprehensive set of security layers ensures that organizations remain productive in the face of evolving threats
  • Spam and virus pre-filtering: software integrated with a cloud-based service that pre-filters email before delivery. In addition, the global cloud infrastructure provides the flexibility to handle email surges during specific periods of the day and during Denial of Service attacks
  • Encryption: the program offers a number of encryption features. It is fully integrated with a cloud-based email encryption service for outbound email.


Barracuda Email Security Gateway is an email archiving solution whose outbound filtering and quarantine capabilities enable organizations to maintain compliance with corporate data loss prevention (DLP) policies.
