For each Barracuda Cloud Control account, you can have either a linked Barracuda Email Security Gateway appliance or an Email Gateway Defense subscription. You cannot use a single Barracuda Cloud Control account for both a linked appliance and the service subscription.

This step assumes you are deploying Email Gateway Defense for the first time. If you previously deployed another Barracuda Networks product and wish to migrate to Barracuda Email Protection, contact your Barracuda Networks sales representative.

  1. Go to and log in with your Barracuda Cloud Control credentials.
  2. Open a new browser window, go to, click Buy Now, and in the Purchase Essentials dialog, click Microsoft Exchange.

  3. In the Plan Details  page, the selected plan displays; click the drop-down menu if you want to select a different option.
  4. Enter the Number of users, and select the Subscription Type. Verify your order summary in the right pane, and click Continue.


    If you are not signed into Barracuda Cloud Control, click Sign in in the right pane. If you do not have a Barracuda Cloud Control account, use the left pane to create and sign in to your account. See Password Complexity Policies before creating your password.

  5. The Barracuda Account page displays your Barracuda Cloud Control account information. If you want to sign in using a different account, click Sign out and use a different account.
  6. Select from the following Client Account options:
    • Add this service to an existing Barracuda account – Select the desired Account from the drop-down menu, and select your location from the Location of Use drop-down menu
    • Create a new Barracuda account for this service – Enter the new account details.
  7. Click Continue.
  8. In the Billing Details (Optional) page, enter your billing information to purchase the service, or leave the Billing Information section blank to start a free 14-day evaluation. Click Continue.

  9. Once the setup process is complete, click Finish. The setup page displays in Barracuda Cloud Control and your 14-day trial begins immediately.

  10. Click Set up to get started.
