Summary Drew MarineHeadquarters in Whippany, NJ with20 offices around the world and600+ employees Challenges: • Data not protected • Lacked file restoration • Information spread across multipleoffices around the globe • Tape solution not feasible • Ability for non-technicalemployees to use solution Solutions: • Five Barracuda Backup 190s • Four Barracuda Backup 390s • One Barracuda Backup 490 • One Barracuda Backup 690 Results: • Data is safely backed up • Files can easily and quickly be restored • Non-technical employeesare able to administer it • Central management Tape Backups Labor-Intensive and Inefficient When Drew Marine was sold, it was left with offices scattered around the globe and no IT team. There were no longer systems in place to protect or preserve vital company data. Griffith needed a fast solution and turned to tapes for a quick fix because on paper, that seemed to meet the company’s needs. Testing tape backups and restores between six different locations showed that it would be quite challenging and inefficient to use a tape solution. “Tapes don’t work when your offices are spread across the world,” said Griffith. Drew Marine does not have staff solely dedicated to IT in most locations, so sending tapes back and forth through the mail and having to explain what to do with them wasn’t working with its fast paced schedule. Immediately, Griffith saw that tape rotation and shipping time was going to impede his company’s ability to have secure, reliable, and efficient backups. Griffith was familiar with Symantec’s Backup Exec and CommVault backup solutions and knew they would not be able to meet Drew Marine’s needs. He decided to get demos and compare pricing for Iron Mountain, EVault, and Barracuda. “I had always used expensive solutions in the past, but this time I was focused on something that was easy-to-use and affordable,” explained Griffith. Describing his demo experience, Griffith said, “I thought if the actual backup product was even half as good as what Barracuda had depicted, we would never need to use anything else. ” Deployment and Implementation Drew Marine has deployed eight Barracuda Backup appliances in three years: four Barracuda Backup 190s and four Barracuda Backup 490s. Griffith is happy that he does not have to hire an IT specialist for every Drew Marine location to handle Backups. Even the installation can be done without IT expertise. He says that it only requires plugging in hardware and typing in the IP address, and that he has successfully walked non-technical employees through set-up in the past, saving IT resources. Fast File Restoration from Anywhere A much appreciated perk is fast, easy file restoration. Griffith explains, “It’s so easy. I get a call from Japan, roll out of bed, connect to the Internet, log in to the portal, restore the file, and go back to bed. The entire process takes less than five minutes, and the employee in Japan has his file back right away. You can’t do that with tape! Everyone’s happy.” Conclusion When Drew Marine’s data was left unprotected, Allwyn Griffith stepped in to rectify the problem. After trying a tape backup solution and finding it was inefficient, he tried more advanced solutions and chose Barracuda Networks. He has purchased four Barracuda Backup appliances and is thrilled with how easy they are to deploy, manage, and use to restore files. In addition, he’s happy that it doesn’t require any special training to deploy and use it.

  • Existing solutions were outdated, with complex user interfaces
  • Limited IT resources
  • Lengthy delays in mail delivery
  • Increasing costs of previous spam filtering solution
  • Performance Issues
  • Spam accuracy
UIA’s IT team found that solution is easy to use, with significant improvements compared to their predecessors. The Barracuda Email Security Gateway has far superior performance and stays up to date thanks to regular firmware updates. Whereas the old web filter only functioned as a forwarding proxy, the new Barracuda solution also scans the content of webpages. This means that if an employee visits an undesired website, they are redirected to a warning page that lets them know that the site is not permitted. Another big difference from the previous web filter is the user interface. 
“The user interface of the Barracuda Web Security Gateway is so straight-forward that it feels like I’m managing a Facebook page. Users don’t need much technical knowledge to use the product.”
Another feature that UIA utilizes on the Barracuda Email Security Gateway is email encryption, a simple, yet secure email service offered by Barracuda at no additional charge. This allows their employees to send out sensitive information and ensure secure communication. A cloud-based approach to encryption ensures that keys are stored centrally, eliminating the need for end-user key management. Results:
  • Ease of use; simple and straightforward user experience
  • Better spam accuracy
  • No delays in delivery
  • User-friendly configuration and setup

Cape Air logo

  • Stakeholders emails were being bombarded with spam
  • Account compromise led to employees receiving targeted phishing emails
  • Protected from spam, malware, and targeted spearphishing attacks
  • Brand and reputation defended against account compromise and domain spoofing
  • Rapid, easy deployment
Cape Air not only serves consumers, but also has partnerships with major airlines that it corresponds with on a regular basis. So, it would not be unusual for those organizations to receive emails from Cape Air—as well as emails from attackers who use domain spoofing to hijack Cape Air’s brand identity.
Gifford explains, “If an account gets compromised and then that compromised account goes on to attack one of our partners, that’s not acceptable to me.”
Therefore, DMARC was also something that needed to be implemented immediately. Gifford started looking for an email security solution that would address the gaps in Office 365, secure his users against targeted attacks, and protect Cape Air’s brand and reputation. He had heard about Barracuda and its security solutions, and when he watched a Barracuda Essentials and Sentinel demo, he liked what he saw.  Cape Air was one of the earliest Barracuda Sentinel customers. Barracuda Sentinel has helped reduce incidents of account compromise by blocking web impersonation emails (e.g., emails that pretend to come from Office 365), which lead to the theft of employee credentials. Barracuda Sentinel also provides domain fraud visibility protection using DMARC authentication, which ensures that no one can hijack Cape Air’s brand.
Gifford says, “I think Sentinel is a ground-breaking program. The thing about AI is that it just gets better.”
Barracuda Sentinel does an excellent job of catching phishing and spear phishing attempts, and Gifford couldn’t be happier. He describes Barracuda Sentinel as being “the best thing since sliced bread.”  Before implementing Barracuda’s email protection, Cape Air faced a lot of spam and their users were flooded with phishing and spear phishing attacks. Cape Air has seen an enormous drop in the number of email attacks since it adopted Barracuda’s email solutions. Phishing and spear-phishing attempts to trap unaware and innocent users are a thing of the past, and almost 100% of all virus and malware traffic is blocked.
“My complaints from end users have dropped significantly,” Gifford says.
Cape Air has had no further incidents since it started using Barracuda’s email protection. Gifford says he’s been happy ever since.

  • Suffered Cryptolocker ransomware attack
  • Business-critical data encrypted
  • Risk of significant cost, lost business, and damaged corporate reputation
  • Encrypted files identified and deleted
  • Affected files restored from backup
  • No ransom paid
  • Up and running again in one hour
The company’s three Barracuda Backup appliances are themselves backed up with Barracuda Cloud subscriptions, replicating local backups to Barracuda’s enterprise-grade datacenters for disaster recovery.
“The Barracuda Cloud subscriptions give us extra peace of mind. Even if our on-site backups are somehow compromised or destroyed, our data will be completely secure and easy to restore,” says Murray.
Murray’s appreciation for Barracuda products goes beyond Backup. He and his team also use Barracuda Web Security Gateway to secure web traffic and monitor web usage by Hayward Tyler’s users.
“We had a SonicWall UTM product that we felt wasn’t performing as we had hoped. Since replacing it with the Barracuda Web Security Gateway, we’ve seen a marked improvement. It’s very powerful, but it’s also very easy to configure and manage.”
Hayward Tyler Group PLC has built its reputation over 200 years by delivering products and solutions that fulfill critical functions reliably and effectively in demanding, dynamic environments. Allowing that reputation to be put at risk by a ransomware attack is simply unacceptable. To protect the company’s reputation, data, business, and personnel, A.J. Murray relies on Barracuda Backup and Barracuda Web Security Gateway.
