New York, NY (PRWEB) March 13, 2013

Leading New York City Internet host GalaxyVisions and colocation provider ColoGuard today announced they are offering Barracuda Networks Inc. products to provide customers industry-leading protection against email spam and viruses.

With the immediate availability of the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall, ColoGuard and GalaxyVisions customers will have the protection of the world's top-selling email security appliance at an affordable price. Both GalaxyVisions and ColoGuard can quickly deploy the firewall to any of their customers' domains for immediate protection against email threats.

"Barracuda's solution adds another layer of convenience and confidence to our colocation and Internet hosting customers," said Ruben Magurdumov, co-founder and vice president of operations at ColoGuard and GalaxyVisions. "We like this technology so much that we immediately deployed it to our own domains and saw an instant decrease in spam."

The Barracuda solution shields email servers from inbound malware and denial-of-service attacks while filtering out unwanted spam. The enterprise-grade technology last week won the Reader Trust Award in the Best Email Security Solutions categories at 2013 SC Awards, which are sponsored by the leading magazine for IT security professionals.

"The email security solution features ease of use and deployment for hardware, virtual, cloud servers and hybrid offerings with no per-user fees," the judges said. "Barracuda Networks leverages 12 defense layers to provide defense capabilities for any email server within large corporate or small business environments."

Barracuda's technology features integrated protection in the cloud, which stops spam before it reaches its customers' networks. Administrators are able to see detailed email monitoring and other statistics via a simple dashboard. The intuitive Web UI gives quick access to system information and management features. Logging and reports require no database administration skills.

Among other features, the Barracuda Spam and Virus Firewall appliance:

  •     Scans of outbound emails and attachments
  •     Blocks unauthorized or unintended disclosures of Social Security and credit card numbers
  •     Blocks spam from leaving customers' servers to prevent reputation loss and blacklisting
  •     Allows users to encrypt customized email at no extra cost

In fact, the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall appliance also prevents phishing, denial of service, spoofing and other attacks. New potential threat vectors and active attacks are identified and blocked by Barracuda Central, the company's 24/7 security center that continuously monitors for new threats and updates profiles for the fastest responses possible.

"Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall is the best value in email security today," Magurdumov said. "We're very excited to offer this service to our customers."
