Outbound E-mail Filtering Included In Spam and Virus Firewall

Barracuda Networks : 01 July, 2010  (New Product)
The latest release of the Spam and Virus Firewall appliance from Barracuda Networks includes policy based content filtering for inbound e-mails as well as outbound messages providing companies with greater policy enforcement capabilities
Barracuda Networks has announced new features to its flagship Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall that enhance full inbound and outbound email scanning from the same appliance. The new features extend the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall's capabilities beyond spam and virus scanning for outbound email, which can safeguard an organisation's email reputation, and include broader content inspection based on policy for both inbound and outbound email on a single appliance. These enhancements ensure that confidential or sensitive information is not distributed outside the organisation.

"It is crucial for organisations, especially within highly regulated industries, to have the ability to protect intellectual property and other sensitive information from being distributed," said Stephen Pao, vice president of product management for Barracuda Networks. "The new Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall extends our powerful content scanning features and makes it easier for customers to manage both inbound and outbound email filtering from the same appliance."

The new Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall allows administrators to define policies to prevent confidential or sensitive information from leaving the organisation. For example, hospitals and other healthcare organisations that must comply with HIPAA policies that mandate the confidentiality of sensitive patient information such as social security or credit card numbers as well as personal health information can now apply pre-defined dictionaries to outbound email scanning to ensure compliance. In addition, administrators can set up separate rules for inbound and outbound filtering, and review the outbound email quarantine for any policy violations before delivery.

Additionally, the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall now offers increased granularity of its roles-based administration interface, enabling assignment of sender and recipient policies on a per-domain basis. These administration enhancements are useful for larger organisations that delegate administration across different divisions and for service providers offering granular policy controls directly to their end customers.
