Why we choose Barracuda – SPAM Filtering

September 16th, 2010 No comments

Here is an interesting article put out by Barracuda, the worldwide leader in Email protection. Our SPAM filtering service employs their technology to protect our customers and their businesses. For more information on our service please visit our website, or call one of our offices.

You may have heard about a rampant email Trojan – dubbed “Here You Have” – that circulated late last week. According to our Barracuda Labs research team, the spam first appeared at 8:44 a.m. PDT on Thursday, Sept. 9 and continued to spike throughout that afternoon. Volume dropped off rapidly once the account hosting the malware was shut down.
 
The virus spread like wildfire. According to reports, it nearly halted work at offices around the world as these messages flooded the inboxes at major organizations including NASA, Comcast, AIG, Disney and more.  I am very happy to report that our security analysis team worked quickly with engineering to ensure that immediate protections were in place to protect our customer base.  And in fact, we immediately blocked more than 200,000 of these messages outright.  This is a faster response time than the majority of our competitors and is an illustration of Barracuda Networks’ ability to respond to the latest threats quickly, and through the power of Energize Updates, we are able to arm our products with powerful protections to keep the networks of you and your customers safe.
 
The Barracuda Labs team posted a blog entry (“
Here You Have” spam teaches an old worm a new trick) with additional details on this attack, and it is the current Featured Entry off the Barracuda Labs home page. Please check the BarracudaLabs.com site often, as we will continue to post updates regarding major outbreaks and trends that we are monitoring as part of our ongoing commitment to providing our customers with the best protection possible.
 
Thank you for your continued support!
 
Regards,
 
Michael Hughes
VP of Worldwide Sales
Barracuda Networks Inc.
