Effortless Security with Barracuda Total Threat Protection

Think of Barracuda's Total Threat Protection solution as a sealed roof over your organization’s head. Deploying a different product for every threat is like puzzle-piecing your roof together, making your roof vulnerable to gaps and leaks such as viruses, hacks, phishing, spam, distributed denial of service, SQL injection, and cross-site sculpting. These gaps not only leave your organization open to storms and breakins, but also cost you money for constant ‘band-aid’ repairs. Barracuda’s blueprint relieves the burden of having to keep up with the less-than-par repairs and managing your several security solutions - all while while saving you money.
