Step 3 - Deploy Compliance Edition for G Suite

  • Last updated on

Use this article to deploy the Barracuda Cloud Archiving Service component of Advanced Email Security and Compliance for G Suite in your environment.

To deploy Barracuda Essentials with G Suite, you must have a G Suite Basic, Business, or Enterprise account. The legacy free edition of G Suite is missing key features required for this deployment. For details on upgrading your G Suite subscription, refer to the Google Support article G Suite legacy free edition.

You must configure G Suite to send archived mail directly to the Barracuda Cloud Archiving Service. 

Google IP address ranges and user interface can change; refer to the G Apps Administrator Help articles Google IP address ranges and Add mail routes with the Hosts tab.

G Suite Enterprise and G Suite Enterprise for Education include some built-in archiving capability. For additional information, see the G Suite Administrator Help solution Integrate Gmail with a third-party archiving solution.

Barracuda Cloud Archiving Service is integrated with Barracuda Cloud Control LDAP. Barracuda Email Security Service has a separate LDAP configuration setup to support multiple user roles across configured domains.

Step 1. Activate the Service

  1. Log in to Barracuda Cloud Archiving Service, and click Set up to the right of Cloud Archiving Service:

  2. Select your geographic location from the Country drop-down menu, and click Activate.

Step 2. Add Users to Your Barracuda Cloud Control Account

Add users through LDAP authentication and associate a role and whose mail can be viewed with an LDAP user or group, or manually configure and assign roles to local accounts in the web interface.

Understanding Roles
  • User – Able only to view messages accessible to the account, either because the username for the account is also that of the sender or recipient of a message, or because it has been given explicit access to view an email address via Alias Linking.
  • Auditor  Able to create and activate policies, and view, search, and export any messages to/from the domains to which they have access. Additionally, Auditors can save and name an Advanced search for re-execution at a later time from the Saved Searches tab. To create a Domain Auditor (an auditor with access to only a subset of the domains on your Barracuda Cloud Archiving Service), set the role to Auditor and specify at least one domain. If no domains are specified, then all messages in the entire Barracuda Cloud Archiving Service are accessible. No auditor account has access to any system or network configuration information on the Barracuda Cloud Archiving Service.
  • Admin – Able to view all items from any user, not just those listed for the account. Also able to create and activate policies, and can make other system or network changes.
