You can use Barracuda Essentials to customize your Office 365 offering or offer it to SMBs already using Microsoft?s cloud-based productivity suite.

Advanced Threat Detection

Barracuda Essentials for Office 365 includes Advanced Threat Detection, a vital security layer that scans email attachments in most commonly used file formats and compares them against a cryptographic hash database.

Files of unknown status are detonated in a sandbox environment within the Barracuda Cloud to observe its behavior, and the result is pushed into the Barracuda Real Time System to provide protection for all other customers. Emails found to contain malicious content are quarantined and administrators and users can be notified. If no malicious content is found, regular mail processing rules apply.
