Barracuda Launches New Security Suite For Microsoft Office 365
Barracuda has launched its new suite of cloud services aimed at making Microsoft Office 365 more secure and operate more efficiently, Barracuda Essentials for Office 365. Barracuda Essentials for Office 365 is an easy-to-deploy and manage suite of services that are the combination of three of Barracuda’s existing products: Barracuda Email Security Service, Barracuda Cloud Archiving Service, and Barracuda Cloud Backup. The new suite of services also comes with a simple per user licensing.
A little while back Barracuda launched a SaaS cloud-to-cloud backup supporting Office 365. Today’s announcement further highlights Barracuda’s commitment to investing in technology and processes to support cloud operations, including a dedicated Office 365. As more and more business move to Office 365 they want to address any potential security risks. The new suite gives customers dedicated security, archiving and data protection while enabling IT administrators to gain greater visibility and control across their organizations’ information.
Key features include:
- Cloud-based Email Security – Enhances security protection for Office 365 Exchange Online with additional granular controls, as well as multi-layer security against email-born threats and data leaks with encryption, data loss protection, and content inspection of all emails.
- Cloud-based Archiving – Assists organizations with compliance retention and eDiscovery requests effectively and easily when used with Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft Office 365, and other on-premises, cloud or hybrid environments. It offers productivity features, including mobile applications for end users to access, search, and retrieve email at any time from any device.
- Cloud-based Backup and Recovery – Offers IT administrators additional capabilities to simplify the process of recovering accidentally or intentionally deleted emails and files in Office 365. It helps run automated backups of Office 365 and OneDrive for Business, which can simplify the process of restores when necessary, and allows for granular retention policies, eDiscovery, and legal hold with real-time backup to protect against accidental or malicious deletion.
Availability and pricing
Barracuda Essentials for Office 365 is available now with a simple per user licensing at $5.00 USD per user, per month or less.
