Extended Antivirus protection on Firewall Upgrade

Barracuda Networks : 25 October, 2011  (New Product)
Exchange server ant-virus now included on Barracuda Spam and Virus Firewalls with new firmware release
Extended Antivirus protection on Firewall Upgrade
Barracuda Networks has announced the company’s flagship Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall line, of both hardware and virtual appliances, now includes its award-winning anti-virus capabilities for Microsoft Exchange servers at no additional charge. The latest firmware release 5.1 stops viruses and malware from circulating through internal emails, adding an additional layer of protection and cost savings to businesses.

Customers with the latest firmware release benefit from:

* Extended anti-virus protection: Adding to the capabilities of the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall to detect and block email-borne viruses for inbound messages and outbound messages, the new Microsoft Exchange agent extends protection to those messages that do not leave the organisation, thus stopping the propagation of rapidly evolving threats.

* Simple installation and management: Administrators can add this extended anti-virus protection with the simple installation of an agent on Microsoft Exchange servers. This new functionality is centrally managed through the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall.

* No additional costs: With no additional fees or per-user costs for this new protection layer; customers can confidently reduce the total cost of ownership of their email security infrastructure by eliminating other third-party anti-virus solutions.

“We were looking to switch from our third-party anti-virus solution after dealing with slowness and incomplete scans. It was hard to manage, with performance issues and the hassle of constant upgrades,” said Jim Pennington, IT director at Sunstar EMS, a Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall customer. “Switching to Barracuda’s Microsoft Exchange Anti-Virus solution was simple and easy. It took 15 minutes to install; it actually took longer to uninstall our old solution. Barracuda’s solution is trustworthy, scans user mailboxes much faster, does not put any load on the server and provides a seamless experience for the end-user.  It certainly helps that it is free”.
In addition to the extended anti-virus capabilities, the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall now allows administrators to customise the notifications sent to recipients of encrypted emails. Notification emails can be customised in any language, and the Barracuda Message Centre – where recipients log-in and read encrypted emails sent to them – can be branded with the sending organisation’s logo. This provides an additional layer of credibility for senders and confidence for recipients that the emails are legitimate. Outbound email encryption offered through the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall is available to all customers with no per-user charge.
