If you’re using your server for email, then as well as protecting it against the nuisance of spam, you also need to be sure it’s fully protected against email borne threats and attacks. This is particularly important if your using the same server to run your website, your customers’ websites, or business critical applications.
Adding a Barracuda Spam and Virus Firewall to your server adds to the robust protection already provided by the CWCS Managed Hosting perimeter firewalls and cyber security systems. It provides an additional layer of protection which you can fully configure, control and set up for your requirements to ensure data on your server is as secure as possible.
The Barracuda Spam and Virus Firewall Vx is a fully integrated hardware and software solution that protects your email server from spam, viruses, spoofing, denial of service, phishing and spyware attacks. Outbound filtering and encryption options prevent targeted or inadvertent leaks of confidential or sensitive information outside your organisation.
The Barracuda Spam and Virus Firewall protects against inbound email-borne threats. This ensures attacks through your email system doesn’t impact your business’ productivity.
