Simulating Email Protection Threats

  • Last updated on

Barracuda XDR Email Protection helps organizations safeguard from threat actors trying to gain unauthorized access via email. It combines algorithmic, Bayesian, and behavioral analysis scanning techniques to root out deceptive attacks while not flagging legitimate messages. Barracuda XDR Email Protection gives users vital information through direct, easy-to-understand, visual indicators (called “banners”) that are placed within the body of the email itself. The banners are inserted by Barracuda XDR Email Protection to alert you of possible threats in your emails.
