The Barracuda Web Filtering service, a cloud-based secure web gateway, protects users from malware, phishing, identity theft, and other harmful activity online - in effect, providing a pure wire to the Internet. The service sits between a company's network and the Internet to protect the company's users as they conduct business-critical activities on the web.
The Barracuda Web Filtering service combines multiple layers of threat protection to combat the most sophisticated web attacks. The layers incorporate anti-virus signatures and object-based malware with advanced AJAX-aware analysis to detect malicious Web applications and script-based attacks. Additionally, the service uses HTTP HTTP-focused behavior analysis and intrusion detection to identify and block botnet communication, spyware and rogue AV.
Easy to use
The Barracuda Web Filtering service offers a very clean and well organized policy and reporting interface that is easy to use. From the dashboard, administrators can view a consistent hyperlinked drill down into three levels of increasingly more granular data. The service simply organizes group-and user-based policies to ensure they are enforced.

Real-time consolidated reporting
The cloud-based service allows you to access reporting anytime, anywhere - across multiple locations, devices and users. The real-time consolidated reporting offers a wealth of security, compliance and usage information that can be scheduled or accessed in real time.
Easy administration, flexible deployment
The Barracuda Web Filtering service offers flexible deployment options to protect users online, no matter where they are or how they access the web. Deployment options range from simply configuring a web browser to more advanced directory integration and transparent intercepting proxy configurations. As a cloud-based solution, the Barracuda Web Filtering service is perfect for distributed locations, to centrally control and manage security and acceptable use policies from a single location with consolidated reporting across multiple locations, devices and users.
Comprehensive compliance enforcement and reporting
The service enforces compliance across your organization, with centralized control of web usage and global visibility of truly real-time, consolidated reporting. The URL database is enhanced with real-time reputation scoring and content analysis. Several different levels of content filtering happen based on file types, content types and web response content to provide a layer of data leak prevention to stop sensitive information from leaving your organization via web traffic.
Protect remote and roaming employees
Employees are just as likely to browse the web from their laptop in a hotel, coffee shop or home as they are in the workplace. Existing web security solutions require VPNs and bandwidth-hungry backhauling for some partial protection. The Barracuda Web Security agent eliminates the burdens that current web security solutions require and takes the performance and functionality of the Barracuda Web Filtering service beyond the corporate perimeter.
