Advanced Threat Protection

Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) implements full system emulation, providing deep visibility into malware behaviour. Files are checked against a dynamic cryptographic hash database, and any match is immediately blocked. If a match is not immediately found, or in case the file is unknown, it is delivered to our virtual sandbox for detonation where malicious behaviour can be safely discovered.

Barracuda ATP offers Administrators file-type-based control over attachment scanning policies and is used in conjunction with our updated virus scanning engines to maintain complete protection of an organisation’s network.
