Barracuda Networks Inc., a leading contributor of security, storage and networking solutions, today announced new features to its flagship Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall that enhance full inbound and outbound email scanning from the same machine. The new features extend the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall's means beyond spam and virus scanning for outbound email, which can defend an organization's email standing, and include broader content inspection based on policy for both inbound and outbound email on a single appliance. These enhancements ensure that private or sensitive information is not distributed outside the organization.
About the Spam & Virus Firewall
The Spam & Virus Firewall is available in eight models with no per user fees. A single Spam & Virus Firewall supports up to 100,000 active users, and multiple units can be clustered together for even greater capacity and ease of use. Its architecture leverages 12 defense lawyers: refutation of service and security shield, rate control, IP analysis, sender authentication, recipient verification, virus protection, policy (user-specified rules), Fingerprint Analysis, Intent Analysis, Image Analysis, Bayesian Analysis, and a Spam Rules Scoring engine. In addition, the entire Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall line features simultaneous inbound and outbound email filtering with the inclusion of complicated outbound email filtering techniques, such as rate controls, domain restrictions, user authentication (SASL), keyword and attachment blocking, triple-layer virus blocking, and remote user support for outbound email filtering. The Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall's layered approach minimizes the processing of each email, which yields the performance required to process millions of messages per day.
