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.
Ease of use; simple and straightforward user experience
