Over $12B has been lost to spear phishing and account takeover.
Targeted attacks carry no malicious payload (URLs or attachments) and bypass email gateways. Sentinel uses AI to outsmart the attackers and protect your business and data.
Block threats already in your inbox.
Traditional email filters only filter incoming emails. Sentinel integrates directly into Office 365 to find threats inside your mail system that security gateways can’t see.
Stay a step ahead of attackers with AI-based threat detection.
Sentinel learns your business’s unique communication patterns to detect personalized fraud in real-time to protect against business email compromise and account takeover.
Stop wasting time managing static security rules.
Sentinel is truly a zero-administration tool. It works silently in the background to block fraudulent emails from reaching users with no impact on performance.
Sentinel detects threats that email gateways can't.
Sentinel detects threats that traditional email security systems can't. It integrates directly with Microsoft Office 365 APIs to detect attacks coming from both internal and external sources. It uses artificial intelligence to detect signs of malicious intent and deception within every email with virtually no IT administration required.
Protect your business against account takeover
Corporate Account Takeover presents a significant new threat to business. Hackers gain access to corporate email accounts through stolen credentials and use them to launch subsequent targeted attacks, internally and against external targets. Account takeover or attacks that originate from these accounts are almost impossible to detect since they don’t leverage impersonation techniques—they come from a legitimate account and appear to be from a trusted source. In fact, traditional email security solutions don’t even observe internal traffic and have no way of stopping an attack originating internally.
Barracuda Sentinel detects both account takeover attempts and attacks launched from compromised accounts. By analyzing both historical and inbound data Sentinel is able to identify behavioral, content, and link-forwarding anomalies within your organization, and to flag and quarantine fraudulent emails. It is also able to prevent attempts to compromise employee credentials by automatically blocking targeted phishing emails that try to harvest employee passwords.
Protect your reputation and stop domain fraud with DMARC reporting
Domain spoofing and brand hijacking are common techniques used by hackers in social engineering attacks. They can be used not only to target your employees, but also your customers, external partners, and other third parties that trust your brand. These impersonation attacks can lead to financial losses, as well as damage to your brand reputation.
DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication Reporting and Conformance) authentication and enforcement can stop domain spoofing attacks. Many organizations today struggle to set up and enforce DMARC on their own, leaving their organization and partners vulnerable to impersonation attacks. With an average organization having dozens of email senders that send email on their behalf, companies need to have granular visibility into all traffic that is using their brand to effectively implement DMARC standards.
Barracuda Sentinel provides complete protection from email domain fraud through DMARC reporting, analysis, and visibility. This helps organizations to set up DMARC enforcement properly and reduce the potential of false-positive enforcements such as blocking legitimate email or misidentifying legitimate sender.
Automate incident response and get access to threat insights.
No email defense can protect against every email threat one hundred percent of the time. And when malicious email ends up in a user’s inbox, you need to address the problem quickly. Slow, inefficient manual incident response processes too often allow the attack to spread further.
Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response automates incident response and provides remediation options to address issues faster and more efficiently. Admins can send alerts to impacted users and remove malicious email directly from their inboxes with a couple of clicks. Discovery and threat insights provided by the Forensics and Incident Response platform help to identify anomalies in delivered email, providing more proactive ways to detect email threats.
Stop Targeted Attacks with AI
Barracuda Sentinel can automatically detect and prevent spear phishing attacks that evade traditional email security systems. The Barracuda Sentinel AI engine learns each organization's unique communication patterns, and leverages these patterns to identify anomalies and quarantine spear phishing attacks in real-time.
Barracuda Sentinel automatically quarantines Business Email Compromise attacks, by detecting anomalies in the email header, as well as the content of the email. The AI does not require any manual rules or user setup, and can detect any type of BEC attack automatically from day one.
Barracuda Sentinel can detect any type of employee impersonation, including impersonation of executives, as well as mid and low level employees. It can detect spoofed emails, typo-squatted domains, and impersonation emails sent from free or personal email clients.
By discovering anomalous communication patterns, within the body of the email, the link or the email header, Barracuda Sentinel can stop zero-day phishing attacks that evade other email security systems. It can detect any type of zero-day phishing attack attacks, including links leading to a fake sign in page, as well as links to malicious websites.
Barracuda Sentinel has been trained to recognize and automatically quarantine phishing emails that impersonate web services, such as Microsoft Outlook, Docusign, Dropbox. The Barracuda Sentinel AI can prevent web impersonations, even when they use deceptive characters or zero-day links.
Barracuda Sentinel automatically stops attacks that impersonate employees by spoofing their email address. The AI engine recognizes the anomalies in spoofing emails and quarantines them.
Customers can report false positives and missed attacks to Barracuda Sentinel, which are used to retrain the AI classifiers. This enables the AI to continuously improve its precision and adapt its detection capabilities.
The raw data from the AI detections can be exported to a CSV file.
Stop Account Takeover with AI
Detect suspicious log-ins by tracking IPs that exhibit suspicious behavior, such as failed sign-ins, and share intelligence across all users and accounts. Track each user’s access patterns and alert IT administrators when Sentinel observes unusual sign-in activity such as from an unusual device or geography. Sentinel tracks both user-level pattern and organization wide level patterns.
By detecting anomalies in internal employee communications, Barracuda Sentinel can automatically detect when employee accounts become compromised and send malicious emails to internal and external recipients. Administrators get alerted when an account has been compromised and can take immediate action.

Changes to users’ email inbox rules can potentially indicate an account takeover. Sentinel lets IT administrators review and investigate recent changes to inbox rules. The Inbox Rules Change Feed provides visibility across the entire email environment, and lets you investigate rules changes for a specific email or account.
Domain Fraud Prevention
Barracuda Sentinel's domain fraud prevention solution prevents third parties from maliciously spoofing domains. The solution leverages DMARC to gain visibility both to legitimate and non-legitimate emails being sent with a particular domain, and enables customers to make sure their legitimate emails are delivered correctly while blocking the malicious senders.
DMARC reports are automatically gathered, analyzed and visualized within Barracuda Sentinel. Customers simply need to change their DNS record using Barracuda Sentinel's setup wizard, and Barracuda Sentinel takes care of the reporting and analysis of the DMARC logs.
Customers can get high level insights on the different email systems sending emails with their domains, as well as gain access to in-depth information, including which IPs are passing and failing DMARC, domain misalignment, and spoofing samples.
Barracuda Sentinel helps customers correctly configure their DKIM and SPF, as well as troubleshoot common problems in SPF/DKIM configuration, such as domain misalignment.
Barracuda Sentinel can help customers increase their legitimate email deliverability, by ensuring that their emails pass email authentication.
