Is there a report claiming superiority of McAfee over Barracuda Spam & Email Security Gateway?

  • Type: Knowledgebase
  • Date changed: one year ago
Solution #00002591

Scope:
All Email Security Gateway, all firmware versions.

Answer:
McAfee published a press release on 2007-09-27 promoting the results of a Network Testing Labs summary.

Some quick points:
  • To set the record straight, the product review was commissioned by McAfee.
  • As a paid product test, Barracuda Networks was not made aware of this competitive test nor were we provided the opportunity to review the test methodology . We believe the product test was conducted simulating a live spam and malware flow based on a collection from the reviewer?s archive.
At the same time, Barracuda is generally regarded as the best solution in INDEPENDENT tests and real-world customer evaluations. Our recent awards and achievements:
  • Barracuda Networks is the leading worldwide email and Web security appliance vendor with more than 100,000 customers
