Barracuda, a trusted partner and provider of cloud-first security solutions, has announced the addition of Zero Trust Access to its email protection suite. The new capabilities allow customers to control and manage access to email systems and Microsoft 365 applications on a need-to-know basis, providing an additional layer of security for their businesses.

With the accelerated migration of workloads to Microsoft 365, the attack surface for today’s businesses has expanded and securing workloads for collaboration tools such as OneDrive, SharePoint and Teams requires security strategies built for the cloud. A robust approach to email security is especially important when it comes to protecting against account takeover because, when an account is compromised, attackers try to move laterally through the Microsoft 365 environment and access other applications and data.

Barracuda Email Protection Premium Plus, now with Zero Trust Access included, hardens the Microsoft 365 environment by continuously verifying and only allowing the right users to access specified resources. Conditional, time-based and context-based access policies for Microsoft 365 email and applications can reduce the attack surface and compliance risks for businesses.

“Barracuda Email Protection with Zero Trust security provides complete protection for Microsoft 365, improving resiliency and security,” said Don MacLennan, SVP, Engineering & Product Management, Email Protection. “For organisations that need to protect their businesses, brands and people against the most advanced email-borne threats, Barracuda Email Protection is a comprehensive, easy-to-use solution.”
