BARRACUDA NETWORKS LAUNCHES NEW BARRACUDA SPAM FIREWALL FOR SMALL BUSINESSES Tuesday 12 June 2007 PDF Print Barracuda Spam Firewall 100 Offers Powerful Spam and Virus Protection for £848 Basingstoke, UK – June 12th, 2007 – Barracuda Networks, Inc., a leading provider of network security appliances, today launched the Barracuda Spam Firewall 100 for small businesses and organisations with 50 users or less. Priced at £848 (includes six months of Energize Updates service) with no per user licensing fees, the Barracuda Spam Firewall 100 offers the same easy to use, powerful spam and virus protection that more than 40,000 customers worldwide have come to rely on, at a price that is well within budget for smaller organisations. “There was a time when small businesses could rely on alternative solutions to spam protection, including desktop software, email server plug-ins or even no spam protection, because they just were not targeted as often as medium and large enterprises,” said Stephen Pao, vice president of product management for Barracuda Networks. “However, botnets have changed the spam landscape and now any business, no matter its size, requires a layer of spam protection in front of the email server. Spam and virus protection at the gateway is becoming a vital necessity for even the smallest business and we are confident that the Barracuda Spam Firewall 100, with its market disruptive pricing, will be the perfect solution for this market segment.” The Barracuda Spam Firewall 100 features the award-winning 12 layers of defence characteristic of the full Barracuda Spam Firewall line. These layers include: denial of service and security protection, rate control, IP analysis, sender authentication, recipient verification, virus protection, policy (user-specified rules), Fingerprint Analysis, Intent Analysis, Image Analysis, Bayesian Analysis, and a Spam Rules Scoring engine. In addition, the Barracuda Spam Firewall 100 will feature the latest tools designed to prevent image spam, including multi-pass optical character recognition (OCR) and automated fingerprint generation techniques, as well as Predictive Sender Profiling, a sophisticated technique aimed at preventing spammers from obfuscating their identities to circumvent reputation analysis. Combined, these protections result in a spam accuracy rating exceeding 95 percent out of the box. Pricing and Availability The Barracuda Spam Firewall 100 is currently available and priced at £848 for the appliance and includes six months of Energize Updates service.
