Barracuda's email solutions complement the existing security and archiving capabilities in Office 365's native anti-spam and antivirus solutions. With advanced functionality to provide granular email management, real-time threat protection, and extended email availability, Barracuda's security and storage offerings give organizations peace of mind in having complete control of their cloud-based email infrastructure.

Cloud-based email services like Office 365 are an attractive solution for organizations looking to provide optimum email service for their users at predictable costs. The Barracuda Message Archiver enhances user productivity and reduces cost and risk by simplifying user access, email management, and eDiscovery/compliance. The Barracuda Message Archiver offers customizable email retention rules and allows organizations to designate auditors to apply litigation holds on specific information. Litigation holds preserve the data from being tampered with until the litigation hold expires or is removed. Running your Message Archiver in Microsoft Azure, provides an easy and secure way to archive mail from cloud-based email services like Office 365. This innovation gives organizations a secure conduit from their cloud email provider to an archive running in the Microsoft Azure cloud; this provides a cloud-based solution for customers who want to move many, if not all services offsite.

Cloud-Connected Archiving

Cloud-Connected Archiving

The cloud-connected Barracuda Message Archiver uses the Barracuda Cloud to move or copy data to the cloud. Setting policies in “mirror” mode replicates all data to the cloud for disaster recovery purposes. Setting the policy to “Rotate” mode allows the appliance to scale-up and use the cloud as a secondary tier of storage.

Simplify Email Management

Simplify Email Management

Users treat mailboxes as filing cabinets, driving expensive server storage to expand continually. They respond to storage limits by archiving messages locally with PSTs, which are not managed (or even seen) by IT. The Barracuda Message Archiver dramatically reduces demand for email server storage through attachment stubbing, message/ attachment deduplicaton, and compression, while also eliminating the need for PSTs.

Streamline eDiscovery and Compliance

Streamline eDiscovery and Compliance

The Barracuda Message Archiver's indexed archive supports extensive search, auditing/ permissions, legal hold, and export helping facilitate eDiscovery and retention. An intuitive interface and powerful feature set shortens response time to ensure messages are found easily when needed. Federated search lets users search across appliances and cloud-based data even when email services are unavailable.


Users can search and retrieve archived messages anywhere, anytime.
