Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response provides remediation options to address issues quickly and efficiently. Geo-IP-based insights are crucial to determining geographical patterns in threats, allowing IT administrators to block future emails emanating from the originating region. IT administrators can send alerts to affected users and remove malicious mail directly from users' inboxes with a couple of clicks. Discovery and threat insights provided by the Forensics platform helps to identify anomalies in delivered email, providing more proactive ways to detect email threats.

"Modern threats are finding new ways to bypass email gateways, so businesses need to take new approaches to prevention, detection and response," said Hatem Naguib, COO at Barracuda. "Malicious emails may end up in a user's mailbox, and when they do, they need to be addressed quickly. Many organizations lack the information and tools security admins need to address these incidents, which results in a manual, inaccurate, time-consuming process."

"With Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response we have added visibility into what suspicious emails are circulating," said Lisa Nicholson, Backup & SQL Database Specialist, The Salvation Army Western Territory. "We can easily investigate that issue and no longer have to spend a lot of time discovering which bad email went to which users. We can simply perform a search … and remediate the issue for several users with a few clicks – removing the email from their inbox.... This saves our team a lot of time which in turn saves our organization money."

Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response also includes integrated domain-based phishing protection leveraging Barracuda Content Shield. Malicious domains received through emails can now be detected and automatically blocked for all users.
