Businesses of all sizes use SharePoint Online for document management, internal workflows, and team collaboration, and it’s quickly gaining popularity over the on-prem version of the solution because it’s accessible from anywhere and easily scalable. One challenge MSPs face, though, is that SharePoint Online has limited backup functionality and retention policies.

That’s why we’re adding cloud-to-cloud backup for SharePoint Online to Barracuda Essentials for Office 365 – Intronis MSP Edition.

Email Threat Scan: How many advanced threats are hiding in your inbox?

Posted by Chris Crellin on Sep 27, 2016 8:28:00 AM

As an MSP, you know that email security is getting more important every day because ransomware and other advanced threats are on the rise. According to a recent report, 93 percent of all phishing emails in the first quarter of 2016 contained ransomware. And people are falling for it. Verizon’s 2016 Data Breach Investigations Report found that roughly 30 percent of phishing emails are opened, and 12 percent of the people targeted clicked on the link or attachment. Those aren’t good odds for your SMB customers.

Traditional email filters and built-in security features like Exchange Online Protection can keep out some of those threats, but have you ever wondered how many advanced threats and spear phishing attacks have penetrated your Office 365 email already? That’s why we’re introducing the Barracuda Email Threat Scan for Office 365.
