New Security Tool for Office 365 Identifies Hidden APTs, Provides Customers with Immediate View of Email Security Posture
ATLANTA (MICROSOFT IGNITE 2016), Sept. 27, 2016 – Barracuda Networks, Inc. (NYSE: CUDA) – /BackupReview.info/ –
With the number of advanced threats on the rise and affecting companies of all sizes, Barracuda today announced availability of the new Barracuda Email Threat Scan for Office 365. Barracuda Email Threat Scan for Office 365 is a cloud-based service that gives customers an immediate view of their email security posture by identifying latent threats within their production corporate email environments. Barracuda recently analyzed 20,000 Office 365 mailboxes and found that 93 percent of accounts had at least one Advanced Persistent Threat (APT), with an average of 125 threats per account. APTs are sophisticated attacks designed to evade traditional email security filters in order to infiltrate corporate networks and steal sensitive or valuable data.
Available free of charge for a limited time, Barracuda Email Threat Scan detects Advanced Persistent Threats, and offers remediation guidance to remove threats and incorporate Advanced Threat Detection into an overall security strategy. Barracuda is running free scans with Email Threat Scan this week at Microsoft Ignite, booth #2445, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. Ignite attendees are invited to stop by to receive a complimentary scan and report overview of their Office 365 environments.
“Both phishing and ransomware are increasing at the rate of several hundred percent per quarter, and we believe that trend will continue for at least the next 18-24 months,” said Michael Osterman, president and CEO, Osterman Research. “In fact, in a recent survey, nearly 50 percent of respondents indicated they had been hit by one or more ransomware attack, and 34 percent had a phishing attack successfully infiltrate their networks in the last 12 months – representing significant risks for organizations today. Barracuda Email Threat Scan for Office 365 is a great tool to help companies better understand their email security risk profile so that they can put measures in place to reduce those risks.”
“I trust various components of our IT with Barracuda,” said Grant Gardner, IT Manager, Ohio Indemnity. “We moved to Office 365 because of the agility and scale, and at the time didn’t consider layering on additional security. We were aware that our mailboxes likely contained various threats. Running the Email Threat Scan allowed me to clearly visualize where the threats were in our mailboxes, and understand why it’s important to augment Office 365 with Barracuda’s advanced threat detection technology.”
Identify Ransomware and Other APTs at Rest
Highlights of the report include:
“Advanced threats are on the rise and affect companies of every size, yet most people aren’t even aware that some of these particularly dangerous threats are sitting all over their mailboxes,” said Hatem Naguib, SVP & GM, Security Business at Barracuda. “We built Email Threat Scan for Office 365 to give customers a comprehensive view of their immediate threat environment and to demonstrate the value of adding an extra layer of sandboxing to protect against these advanced threats. Many of our customers are turning to Office 365, and Barracuda Email Threat Scan and Barracuda Essentials for Office 365 together enable organizations to more safely adopt Office 365. Barracuda offers Office 365 customers a true end-to-end solution to help detect, prevent and recover from malicious email attacks.”
