Artificial intelligence for real-time email protection Business email compromise (BEC), spear phishing, and account takeover are today's top email threats. These hyper-targeted attacks trick employees into making terribly costly mistakes. Barracuda Sentinel combines artificial intelligence, deep integration with Microsoft Office 365, and brand protection into a comprehensive cloud-based solution that guards against these potentially devastating attacks.

Real-time defense against business email compromise
Sentinel’s unique API-based architecture lets its AI engine study historical email and learn users’ unique communication patterns. It can then identify anomalies in message metadata and content, to find and block socially engineered attacks in real time. This approach based on historical patterns is far more accurate than traditional policybased strategies for detecting socially engineered and account-takeover attacks.

Protection against account takeover and insider risk
Account takeover lets hackers secretly study their target and plan their attack. Gateway defenses never see the internal attacks that are launched from these compromised accounts, so they can't detect them. Sentinel stops phishing attacks used to harvest credentials for account takeover. It detects anomalous email behavior and alerts IT, then finds and removes all fraud emails sent from compromised accounts.

Brand protection and domain fraud visibility
Domain spoofing is a common type of social engineering attack that targets your employees, customers, and partners. Sentinel helps prevent email domain fraud with DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication Reporting and Conformance) reporting and analysis. Barracuda Sentinel helps set up DMARC authentication. Granular visibility and analysis of DMARC reports helps you minimize false positives, protect legitimate email, and prevent spoofing.
