The Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall provides a powerful, easy-to-use and affordable solution for complete protection of an organization's email infrastructure. It eliminates spam and virus intrusions while safeguarding an organization's reputation through content inspection based on policy for both inbound and outbound email. Outbound filtering also prevents confidential or sensitive information from being purposely or inadvertently leaked outside the organization. The Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall is compatible with all email servers and can fit into nearly any corporate or small business environment. It is used by small organizations with as few as 10 employees and large organizations with as many as 200,000 employees. A single Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall handles up to 100,000 active email users. Multiple units can be clustered together for even greater capacity and high availability.

The Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall protects your email server with twelve defense layers:

Configuration of the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall is accomplished through a simple Web-based interface that is built into the system. There is no software to install and no CDs or floppies to lose.

The configuration screens are comprehensive and provide for a large amount of customization. This customization is rarely needed because the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall comes with default settings and self-tuning parameters such that 95% percent of the options never have to be adjusted.

Statistics Reporting
The Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall's administrative tools feature state-of-the-art, statistical reporting tools that give you a visual edge on spam levels in your network. The Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall-Outbound is a mail transfer agent (MTA) that uses sophisticated email filtering and policy management to protect organizations from such risks. It's a powerful solution suitable for the largest of businesses, yet has the ease of use and affordability that smaller businesses demand.

The Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall-Outbound includes all the features needed to eliminate your outbound spam and protect against virus proliferation.

The Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall-Outbound is easily deployed and quickly installed. It is compatible with all email servers and can fit into nearly any corporate or small business environment. It can replace any existing outbound mail relay and sits between your client machines and the Internet. It can also be used by remote workers as a reliable mail relay.

Powerful, Enterprise-Class Solution
The Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall-Outbound is a powerful enterprise-class solution that provides outbound email protection in three key ways:
Stops virus proliferation
Enforces corporate policies
Prevents spamming
No organization, especially no ISP, wants to be the source of viruses or spam. It not only puts a tremendous strain on the company's network, but it's also damaging to the organization's reputation. The Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall-Outbound ensures that all email leaving the network is virus-free and legitimate. It prevents people from unintentionally or intentionally using the organization's network to send viruses or spam.

The Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall-Outbound also helps ensure that employees are in compliance with government regulations and corporate information policies. With laws that now govern how or when companies are able to disseminate sensitive information, it is critical for companies to monitor emails for regulatory compliance. But even absent such regulations, it makes good business sense to enforce corporate information policies and protect intellectual property from being inappropriately disseminated.

Affordable
The Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall-Outbound is the most affordable solution for outbound email protection. With no per user license fees, the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall-Outbound is affordable for businesses of all sizes—from small organizations to global ISPs and enterprises.

Virus Outbreak Protection
The Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall-Outbound can identify users that have a virus and can stop it before it is disseminated, preventing viruses from being sent to users outside the corporate network. A variety of methods including dual layer virus blocking, file type blocking, and decompression of archives is used for such virus outbreak protection.

Multilingual Support
The Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall-Outbound can detect and block outbound spam in more than ten languages and features a user interface available in Chinese (simplified and traditional), German, French, Spanish, Japanese, Dutch, Portuguese, Russian, Czech and English.

Corporate and Regulatory Policy Enforcement
Organizations must make sure that intellectual property and other confidential information is protected. Heightened awareness surrounding government regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA and Gramm-Leach-Bliley, have increased the need for organizations to take a more proactive role in policing what information is disseminated through email. The Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall-Outbound is designed to enforce such policies through footer attachment, scanning and filtering, keyword and attachment blocking. In addition, the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall-Outbound enables the administrator to set quarantine parameters for questionable email that can be reviewed and released, or blocked as needed. Quarantine notifications can be sent on a weekly/daily basis to alert administrator to take action against questionable email. The Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall-Outbound can also journal messages sent through the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall-Outbound.

Protection Against Spam Proliferation
In the last year a growing number of spam operations have employed unsuspecting open relays to send spam. This practice often goes unnoticed by the IT staff until problems, such as server overload or blacklisting, disrupts regular email communication. The Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall-Outbound uses advanced rate control features to thwart zombie PCs and alert the IT staff of the affected organization any time a large quantity of email attempts to leave the network. The hijacked machine can then be shut down before the bulk of spam is sent. In addition to rate controls, the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall-Outbound also uses domain restrictions, IP restrictions and user authentication to prevent outbound spam.
