Barracuda Networks has released the Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response. Previously available only to Barracuda Total Email Protection customers, the Forensics and Incident Response offering can now be layered with an organization’s existing gateway security solution, giving customers and service providers greater flexibility in email threat detection and response.
Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response is an innovative solution allowing organizations to proactively respond to targeted attacks that were delivered to users’ inboxes. The solution automates a process that otherwise can take hours or even days to complete.
According to the 2019 SANS Incident Response survey, manual remediation of security incidents takes more than six hours for 80 percent of organizations — with attacks spreading across the organization. The same process can be automated and completed in minutes with Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response. Based on Total Email Protection customer data, organizations saw a significant reduction in time spent on investigation and remediation of reported attacks after introducing Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response.
Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response provides remediation options to address issues quickly and efficiently. Geo-IP-based insights are crucial to determining geographical patterns in threats, allowing IT administrators to block future emails emanating from the originating region. IT administrators can send alerts to affected users and remove malicious mail directly from users’ inboxes with a couple of clicks. Discovery and threat insights provided by the Forensics platform helps to identify anomalies in delivered email, providing more proactive ways to detect email threats.
