Stop Advanced Threats that Evade Traditional Detection Techniques

Modern attacks are rapidly growing in volume and sophistication. New malware strains are designed to evade traditional detection techniques and are often propagated through targeted, zero-hour attacks. And these new malware variants are appearing faster and in greater number than ever before—new ransomware variants alone are predicted to appear at a rate of more than 200 per quarter for the foreseeable future.

Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection is an integrated cloud-based service that analyzes traffic across all of the major threat vectors.

Protects All Major Threat Vectors:    Email • Web browsing • Web applications • Remote users • Mobile devices • Network perimeter

Machine Learning   Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection uses advanced machine learning techniques to stay ahead of ever-evolving malware, including new variants that are capable of exploiting one or more threat vectors.

Benefits of a Layered Defense   Stopping advanced threats from reaching your users and data requires a layered defense. In a 2016 independent test conducted by MRG Effitas and AV-Comparatives, the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall, with Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection technology enabled, was the only solution tested to achieve 100-percent effectiveness, along with a zero-percent rate of false positives.Barracuda’s multi-layer defense pre-filters possible threats by using increasingly sophisticated analysis, to optimize efficiency and ensure rapid response to any type of attack without compromising network performance or security policies.

Layer 1

Advanced Threat Signatures   Barracuda maintains a massive database of known threat signatures that is used to detect and block any known threat. Whenever a new threat is identified, its signature is immediately added to the database and shared across all our security products and subscribers in real time.


Layer 2

Behavioral and Heuristic Analysis   
Any email or data that is not blocked at Layer 1 is then subjected to behavioral and heuristic analysis at Layer 2. In this layer, questionable code and scripts are analyzed in a controlled environment. This layer looks for suspicious activities such as replication, file overwrites, and obfuscation attempts.

Layer 3

Static Code Analysis   
Static code analysis examines parts of any executable file to find questionable code without actually executing the code. This layer is a fast and highly effective method of pre-filtering malware before sending questionable files on to the final, sandboxing layer.

Layer 4

CPU-Emulation Sandboxing   
The final layer of analysis is a comprehensive CPU emulation-based sandbox that detonates any suspect files that have survived the previous layers. By using CPU emulation, the Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection can detect threats that are designed to evade traditional virtualization-based sandboxes.

Global Threat Intelligence Network

Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection leverages a global threat intelligence network that ingests vast amounts of diverse threat information from millions of collection points around the world. These include deployed Barracuda endpoints; honeypots, or decoys intended to attract the attention of threat actors and criminals; autonomous crawlers, bots that travel the internet actively seeking out new threats; third-party malware submissions; and analysis by Barracuda Labs.

All this information comes together to create the most up-to-date possible view of the threat environment. This is shared in real time with all Barracuda deployments with Advanced Threat Protection enabled—giving you the best protection against advanced threats in the industry.[/snli]

Don’t Be a Ransomware Victim

Ransomware is on the rise. Barracuda’s multi-layered defense protects your data (and your money).

Ransomware is a type of malware that lets attackers find and encrypt your most important data. They then offer to provide the decryption key only if you pay a ransom, within a short time. This is the number one IT security challenge that you face today, with resource-limited small and mid-size businesses the most likely targets.

Cybercriminals exploit a variety of threat vectors, including email, network traffic, user behavior, and application traffic to insert ransomware. Without a comprehensive security strategy that secures all these vectors, you are almost certain to become a victim.

  • 47% of businesses have been affected by ransomware.
  • The FBI reports that $209 million was paid to ransomware criminals in the first quarter of 2016.
  • 59% of ransomware infections are delivered via email attachments and embedded URLs.

Barracuda provides a complete family of solutions that work together to help you detect, prevent, and recover from ransomware attacks.

Detect ransomware and other advanced threats, using automated online threat scanners (offered at no charge) and advanced, multi-layer detection technologies including sandbox analysis.

Prevent them from infecting your systems, thanks to best-of-breed products to secure your network perimeter, email, web traffic, and outward-facing web applications.

Recover quickly and easily in case attackers are successful, with state-of-the-art backup solutions that leave attackers with nothing, while you get right back to business.

Stop Email-Borne Threats before They Hit Your Mail Server

Email is the top threat vector for ransomware and other advanced threats. You need to ensure that your business data and users are protected from advanced and constantly evolving security threats. This requires a layer of security beyond the standard Exchange Online Protection (EOP).

Barracuda offers two cloud-based services that protect all your business email in Office 365 with zero impact on email performance. Barracuda Essentials for Office 365 is a comprehensive email security suite that filters every inbound and outbound email to stop spam, viruses, data leaks, and malware. Barracuda Sentinel goes a step further to use an AI engine to inspect all the emails already in your in box to block against impersonation-based fraud such as phishing. Together, they provide the industry’s best and most cost-effective protection for Office 365 users.

Microsoft + Barracuda = Peace of Mind

Barracuda Essentials and Sentinel provide the industry’s most comprehensive security and data protection solution for Office 365. Barracuda lets you quickly protect your business and customers from the most sophisticated and cyber-threats. Our award-winning spam filtering keeps your employees productive. Our cloud-to-cloud backup even protects you against accidental or intentional deletion of emails by employees.

Defend Your Office 365 Environment Against Email-Borne Threats

Barracuda Essentials for Office 365 stops spam, viruses, and known malware using signature-matching that leverages Barracuda’s vast global threat intelligence system, which gathers real-time threat data from millions of collection points around the world. It also includes a subscription to Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection—a cloud-based service that uses a multilayered architecture with a CPU-emulation sandbox to detect and block new (zero-day) and advanced, evasive threats before they touch your deployment.

Discover Latent Threats in Your Mailboxes

The email files stored in your Office 365 environment almost certainly include latent threats—malicious URLs and attachments that are just waiting for a single distracted click to launch an attack on your network. Given the volume and variety of threat-bearing emails, it’s not realistic to consider a manual approach to finding and deleting them all.

The Barracuda Email Threat Scanner is a cloud-based service available to anyone, at no charge. It scans your Office 365 email folders using advanced analytic techniques. It then delivers a report that details all the latent threats, including risk levels, affected users, and more. The information not only lets you clear out the latent threats in your environment; it also gives you the insights you need to adjust or improve your email security policies and strategies to reduce the chance of more malicious email getting into your system.

Don’t Fall Victim to Phishing, Brand Hijacking, and Domain Fraud

The most sophisticated email-based attacks are the ones that personal. Attackers convincingly impersonate legitimate businesses, colleagues and even customers to obtain sensitive data and money. Barracuda Sentinel uses artificial intelligence engine to add real-time defense from email-based fraud.

Barracuda Sentinel automatically learns the unique communication patterns of each individual organization. It uses this knowledge to find anomalous signals in the attributes of the incoming message’s metadata and content. It also adds DMARC (Domain-Based Message Authentication Reporting & Conformance) to track potentially sensitive emails being sent from your organization.

Turn Employees into a Line of Defense Against Phishing AttacksM

Phishing attacks are more convincing than ever, and they can be difficult to spot. To complicate matters, the attackers are targeting unsecured personal mail accounts more than ever. As a last line of defense, employees need to get better at spotting socially engineered spear phishing attacks.

Barracuda PhishLine provides leading-edge user awareness training to counter sophisticated phishing and socially engineered spear phishing attacks. PhishLine helps your users sharpen their anti-phishing skills with advanced phishing simulations along with end-user testing,
