Complete Protection For Your Employees, Data and Business

Barracuda Essentials for Office 365

Nearly all cyber attacks start with an email and the level of risk and complexity of attacks has risen significantly in recent years so it is more important than ever to protect your email, users and business data.

Microsoft’s primary focus within Office 365 is ensuring that service and data availability are not disrupted. While Microsoft does a great job of reducing the risk of downtime, this doesn’t reduce the risk of data loss. In fact, Microsoft’s options for data recovery are quite limited, but they do provide some basic safety measures:

 

 

The Recycle Bins act as a safety net for deleted content. While data can be recovered from these Recycle Bins, the retention for each is limited and once the data is out of retention, the data is gone forever.

Microsoft even tells their Office 365 customers that they own their data and are solely responsible for protecting it.

Phishing vs. Spear Phishing: What You Need to Know

Phishing originated around 1995 when people were far less aware of the risks associated with doing business online. In those days, hackers were known as phreaks, which is why phishing ended up being spelled with a “ph” instead of an “f”.

Many people think that spear phishing is just another term for phishing, but it’s actually a very different type of attack. Whereas phishers send emails in bulk to large numbers of people, spear phishers do extensive research before starting their illegal campaigns. They send highly personalized messages to targeted people within an organization, often relying on impersonation techniques. For example they may pretend to be the CEO, CFO, another trusted executive or even a customer. Read more about the ‘Evolution of Spear Phishing‘ in our whitepaper below.

So, Why do I need additional email security with Office 365?

There are no native security features in Office 365 specifically designed to stop spear phishing and cyber fraud. Therefore, the ability of Microsoft to detect these threats is limited and most attacks using social engineering techniques will pass through undetected.

Traditional gateway solutions take a rules-based approach to identify phishing and spear phishing attacks. This is complex to set up and manage, particularly as threats evolve.

How can I ensure that my email is completely protected?

Barracuda Sentinel uses industry leading Artificial Intelligence to recognise threats automatically, provides a very high detection rate and requires no configuration or ongoing management.

If you already have an existing email security solution, Barracuda Sentinel can be implemented alongside all existing email security solutions and will protect against email threats your existing solution isn’t able to detect, including spear phishing, impersonation attempts, account takeover and cyber fraud.
