Features:To provide you with maximum protection against spam, spyware, and viruses Barracuda Networks maintains Barracuda Central, a powerful operations center. Our engineers at Barracuda Central work day and night to continuously monitor the Internet for new trends and develop new ways to counteract any new threats. By spotting these types of trends early on, the team at Barracuda Central can then quickly develop new and improved detection and blocking techniques.
The new spam-blocking updates, spyware protection updates, and virus definitions are automatically updated to your Barracuda Networks' product through the Barracuda Energize Updates.
Barracuda Central employs a number of techniques to make sure that your Barracuda Networks' product is fighting the right threat the right way. We use many of our own techniques and our own tracking systems, but we also use public efforts. We verify all of our solutions and ensure that they meet Barracuda standards. You can depend on the Barracuda Networks' Spam Firewall and the Barracuda Web Filter to provide reliable, comprehensive spam, spyware, and virus protection.
