Barracuda Networks, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-connected security and storage solutions, announces its Intronis MSP Solutions, which provides backup and data protection solutions for managed service providers (MSPs), now includes Barracuda Essentials for Office 365, a suite of cloud services that combines email security, archiving, and backup in a single solution.
Barracuda Essentials enables MSP partners to provide protection for customers in Office 365 environments against data loss resulting from targeted email attacks as well as recovery after a data loss event. Providing vital multi-layered security, archiving, and backup to help customers prepare for, migrate to, and rely on Office 365 with confidence. The package enhances Microsoft’s built-in features with added email security and Advanced Threat Detection.
Thiban Dharmalingam, Regional Manager of Barracuda in Malaysia says, “While backup remains a critical part of data protection, MSPs need to take a more holistic approach by also proactively protecting their customers against targeted email threats such as phishing.”
“By adding Barracuda Essentials for Office 365 to our MSP offering, we are providing our partners with another best-in-class solution that further enables them to securely protect their customers from data loss while improving efficiency, lowering operating costs, and allowing them to focus on their main priorities — delivering customer value and growing their businesses,” he adds.

For MSPs looking to provide their customers with extra layers of protection, Barracuda Essentials for Office 365 can also be combined with Intronis’ other data protection solutions.
1.) Enterprise-Grade Advanced Threat Detection
Featuring Barracuda’s Email Security Service and Advanced Threat Detection (ATD), Barracuda Essentials for Office 365 offers a comprehensive and cost-effective way for MSPs to protect their customers using Microsoft’s cloud-based productivity suite against a broad range of email-based threats including phishing, zero-day vulnerabilities, malware, and spam.
Advanced Threat Detection provides an important 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 neutralized in a sandbox environment within the Barracuda Cloud to observe behaviors, and the results are then pushed into the Barracuda Real Time System to provide protection for all 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.
2.) Extra Protection with Archiving and Cloud-to-Cloud Backup
In addition, with Barracuda Essentials for Office 365, customers can archive their emails using policy-based retention and search capabilities. This allows MSPs to easily and effectively help customers meet compliance requirements and address eDiscovery requests.
MSPs can also automate the backup and recovery of Exchange Online emails and attachments, as well as OneDrive for Business files, to protect against data loss, corruption, and accidental deletion. “With Barracuda Essentials for Office 365, we are able to reinforce email security for our customers already using Microsoft’s cloud-based productivity suite, while leveraging the centralized management capabilities available with Intronis’ entire suite of email security and data protection solutions to reduce administrative overhead and offer lower total cost of ownership,” said Jason Clucas, Business Development Lead, TekDoc Solutions.
