As cyber criminals continue to adapt and advance their attack methods, government organisations must strive to improve cyber-security at every vector. 

Cyber criminals are targeting more government entities by finding holes in dated legacy systems, which are inadequate in protecting the network, data, and users. These government organisations need to invest in contemporary IT security and data protection—and need to do this quickly before it’s too late.

Barracuda products and services offer robust, reliable, and easy-to-manage security and data protection solutions that secure your network, data and users against sophisticated cyber threats.


Complete Email Security

Email remains the single most common vector for targeted cyber-attacks, and is often used by government organisations for highly confidential communications and data delivery, making it a key area of concern for those still relying on traditional gateway security alone.

Barracuda Essentials for Office 365 scans your email traffic to block malicious attachments and URLs. Outbound scanning prevents data loss, and advanced analysis spots typo-squatting and other signs of phishing.
