New Email Protection Bundle Offers Customers and Partners an Easier Way to Buy Barracuda Email Protection
Barracuda Networks, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-enabled security and data protection solutions, today announced a new email protection bundle, including the full stack of Barracuda’s email security protection. Barracuda Total Email Protection bundle offers customers a defense against socially engineered business email attacks, fraud and account takeover.
With strong demand from Barracuda partners and customers, the new Barracuda Total Email Protection bundle includes Barracuda Essentials, Barracuda Sentinel and Barracuda PhishLine. It is offered with a single SKU for less administration, lower deal friction and a faster sales cycle.
“Email security was once viewed as a way to stop spam from bogging down workflows — now it’s viewed as mission critical and requires a multi-layered security approach to successfully protect targeted employees, applications and data,” said Ezra Hookano, VP of Channels, Barracuda.
“With this announcement, we’re fulfilling a strong demand from our partner community to offer a single SKU for the full stack of our email protection solutions, offering an easier way for customers to buy all the email protection they need, the simplest way possible.”
Barracuda offers customers a combination of gateway security, data protection, AI-based targeted threat protection and user awareness training to deliver comprehensive protection against email-borne threats.
A recent study commissioned by Barracuda revealed 87 percent of IT security professionals said their company had faced an email-based security threat in the past year. The study includes responses from 634 executives, individual contributors, and team managers serving in IT-security roles in the Americas, EMEA and APAC.
Overall, the research indicates that email threats continue to increase and the impact on staff and productivity is escalating. The vast majority of IT professionals believe that end-user training and awareness programs are a vital pre-requisite to help mitigate threats and improve email security.

Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.
Cybersecurity Insights - Attack
No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?
Cybersecurity Insights - People
Cyber resilience will be particularly important as Australian organisations face increased pressure to quickly detect, respond to, and manage the repercussions of breaches in the wake of 2018’s Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme.
