Barracuda Provides Free Email Security For Google Postini

Barracuda Networks Inc., a leading provider of security, networking and data protection solutions, today announces a free email security offering to all Google Postini users including many Malaysian users for six months.

This free Barracuda Email Security Service and Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall service is part of a transition plan offered to Malaysian Google Postini users whose email security is shut down in an attempt to force users transfer their accounts to Google Apps.

Barracuda Networks is making this bold transition offering available on the heels of Google's recent announcement at CNET* that the company is retiring the Postini service by 2013. Google Postini customers all around the world who choose not to transfer their accounts to Google Apps will see their Postini service terminated, leaving their inboxes open to spam, phishing attacks and other email-security threats.

Mr. Thiban Darmalingam, Regional Manager, Malaysia said "We are offering our local customers here an exceptional pure cloud solution, hardware appliance and virtual appliance deployment options, which will fit best to just about any customer environment fulfilling a broad spectrum of privacy requirements”.

"While Google is trying to push their customers to Google Apps, we recognize that many users want a continuation choice, so we are offering existing Postini customers in this difficult position to try Barracuda’s email security solutions at risk free for six months – especially when they are forced to go through this transition period," says Thiban.

He further comments, “In the country’s move towards technological growth, it is important that the basic online communication is secured. Customers need to continually feel safe in order to connect and share data freely online without risk of being infested.”

Why make the switch?

In addition to the cost benefits of receiving six months of email security free of charge, Barracuda Networks makes the transition from Google Postini easy one with the following multiple benefits:

  • Controlled privacy - Customers concerned with privacy issues related to Google Apps can be assured that Barracuda Networks does not collect any information for the purpose of serving advertisements.
