GDPR Is Here. Barracuda Can Help.

Security and Data Protection to Help You Achieve, Maintain, and Document Compliance

As of 25 May 2018, a new regulatory regime—the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)—is in effect in the European Union (EU). Complying with GDPR’s requirements poses challenges, but it is also an opportunity to evaluate all aspects of your security posture, and to ensure that any existing security gaps are eliminated.

Complying with GDPR is not simply an IT challenge, and involves disciplined management and business processes. However, the regime’s core security provisions are fundamentally technical in nature. When it comes to these technical provisions, Barracuda security solutions are well suited to help you more easily achieve, maintain, and document GDPR compliance.


State-of-the-Art Technical Security Measures

Barracuda provides a comprehensive and integrated set of security solutions. They use state-of-the-art technology to block highly sophisticated malware from penetrating your network, to help prevent the exfiltration or theft of data, and to secure data in the event of natural disasters and equipment failure.

  • Barracuda CloudGen Firewalls are designed to make it easy to secure and regulate network and application access. They are designed for highly distributed environments. Whether your infrastructure is on-premises, in the cloud, or a combination, they provide advanced security at all network and data-transfer boundaries.
  • Barracuda Essentials is a complete email security and management solution that also provides secure archiving and backup to protect personal data and communications from loss and theft.
  • Barracuda Web Application Firewalls eliminate web app vulnerabilities to prevent intrusions, and secure data stored in web application servers.
  • Barracuda Backup creates secure, redundant, real-time, 256-bit AES encrypted backup of your offsite replicated data. Backups can be replicated to an off-site physical or virtual appliance, to the Barracuda Cloud, or to Amazon Web Services. This protects data against ransomware and other criminal attacks, along with natural disasters, hardware failures, and human error.
  • Barracuda Archiving solutions securely index and preserve unmodified copies of every email message and attachment at the time it is sent or received. Granular retention polices ensure original data is kept without risk of amendment or deletion. Historical email data can also be imported to provide a complete archive. Advanced search and comprehensive audit trails help you demonstrate regulatory compliance.

Preventing Breaches, Leaks, and Loss

Barracuda security solutions including CloudGen Firewalls, Web Security Gateways, Essentials for Email Security, and Web Application Firewalls all use state-of-the-art analytics to filter outgoing traffic and prevent spyware, keyloggers, and other malicious phone-home malware from transmitting sensitive data outside the network.

Essentials also uses advanced techniques to protect users against phishing and other email-borne attempts to steal credentials, such as malicious URLs and typosquatting.

Web Application Firewalls protect applications from hacking and OWASP Top 10 attacks, including SQL injection, Cross-Site Scripting, and application DDoS.

Specific and Detailed Breach Notification

If your organization does fall victim to a data breach, gathering and analyzing information about the breach should be as fast and easy as possible.

Barracuda solutions provide detailed logs, reports, and dashboards that include information about users, IP addresses, geography, websites, applications, threats, severity, audit logs, and more. This information can be used by admins to analyze, remediate, and notify in case of data breaches and other security incidents. Creating custom reports is also easy, allowing you to focus on the most relevant and actionable points of information.
