Barracuda Incident Response

Respond faster to email attacks

80 percent of organizations report taking over 6 hours to respond to email attacks.

During that time, threats are free to spread throughout the network, causing mounting damage and increasing costs.

Slash the time between detection and remediation

Respond to attacks and stop the damage in minutes, with powerful delivered-email search and rapid deletion from all inboxes.

Proactively identify security threats with threat insights

Identify anomalies that may indicate threats, based on insights gathered from analysis of previously delivered email and community-sourced intelligence.

Prevent future attacks

Use intelligence gathered from previously remediated threats to continuously block future emails from malicious actors, and to identify your most vulnerable users.

Reduce the impact and cost of email attacks

When email-borne attacks evade security and land in your users’ inboxes, you need to respond quickly and accurately to prevent damage and to limit the spread of the attack. Responding to attacks manually is time-consuming and inefficient, which allows threats to spread and damages to increase.

Barracuda Incident Response automates these processes to ensure that you quickly identify the nature and scope of the attack, immediately eliminate malicious emails, and carry out remediation actions rapidly to halt the attack’s progress and minimize damages.

Respond faster and more effectively with:


  • Post-delivery threat removal
  • Notification of affected users
  • Fast click-through remediation
  • Security incident alerts
  • Automated response playbooks

Respond immediately to email-borne attacks.

When malicious email is reported to IT, Barracuda Incident Response lets you immediately search all delivered email, by sender or subject, to identify all internal users who have received it. You can then automatically remove all instances of the threat-bearing email. Automatic remediation will identify and remove email messages that contain malicious URLs or attachments post-delivery directly from user’s mailboxes without your involvement.

Automate your entire incident response process.

Incident response playbooks help outline effective response workflows but often include manual, repetitive tasks that can be time-consuming to complete. Barracuda’s Automated Workflow functionality empowers you to build custom playbooks and completely automate your response to a variety of email events, across a range of solutions. Additionally, our public APIs allow you to integrate response data with your SIEM/SOAR/XDR platforms to streamline operations and further preserve IT resources.

Limit damage.

In addition to identifying who received the malicious email, Incident Response lets you identify the users who actually clicked on a malicious link. It can then automatically deliver instructions to update passwords or take other actions to limit the spread of the attack. These users can also be assigned enhanced security awareness training to prevent future incidents.

Gain insights to prevent future attacks.

Incident Response has powerful analytic capabilities that allow you to use insights gathered from analysis of delivered email to identify anomalies in email that’s already in your users’ inboxes. For example, you can review geographies where inbound email is coming from, and proactively identify malicious email from countries you don’t usually do business with. You can prioritize and uncover new threats using data on potential incidents related to ones already created by you or other Barracuda customers, and on threats that are currently circulating and have been identified by Barracuda intelligence. This insight will help your team to identify threats that otherwise go unnoticed.
