Comprehensive Mobile Apps

The Barracuda Message Archiver offers flexible and full-featured mobile applications for Android and iOS devices, allowing users to use their mobile device to search, download, and respond to any email ever sent or received, even if deleted from the server. Because all email is indexed, search is often much faster than typical native mobile email applications and provides a much higher search success rate. Users can forward, reply, or resend email to themselves.

Exchange Stubbing

The Barracuda Message Archiver employs Exchange Stubbing to help reduce size of the Exchange Information Store. Messages and attachments removed from the information store are kept on the Barracuda Message Archiver for easy access, which helps organizations minimize their Exchange storage to reduce costs, shrink Exchange backup windows, and simplify Exchange management.

PST Collector

One major challenge for IT in typical organizations is lack of visibility and control of users' local message archives in the form of PST files. The Barracuda Message Archiver helps consolidate user PSTs into a single searchable location. PSTs can be uploaded directly into the Barracuda Message Archiver by administrators, end-users, or the automated PST Collector. Barracuda's PST Collector scans the organization's entire network for PST files and assigns the imported PST files to the correct user.

Retention and Litigation Holds

In addition to storage reduction, another reason to archive email is for eDiscovery. The Barracuda Message Archiver offers customizable email retention rules and allows organizations to designate an auditor(s) to apply litigation holds on specific information. Litigation holds preserve the data from being tampered with until the litigation hold expires or is removed.

Single Instance Storage

The Barracuda Message Archiver uses single instance storage, a form of deduplication for both new and older messages. This minimizes both expensive tier-1 storage for email servers and backup windows needed to protect email data.

Message Import

The Barracuda Message Archiver can collect historical data from multiple sources, from production or legacy email servers. With Exchange integration, organizations are able to import contacts, calendars, tasks, and journal entries. The Barracuda Message Archiver is also able to import public folders from Microsoft Exchange.

Message Export

Users can easily export messages back to their mail server via their standard web interface and IT administrators and auditors can also export messages either in standard formats or to Barracuda's Copy file sync and share platform.

Powerful Searching

The Barracuda Message Archiver offers easy-to-use search capabilities, ranging from the most basic search by a user for a misplaced email to advanced Boolean search strategies for an auditor during an eDiscovery request.

Standard Format Storage

The Barracuda Message Archiver stores archived email in a standard email format, so organizations can easily export the stored archived data to PST or .eml format. The desired content can also be forwarded to an Exchange server.

Usage Reports

Effective management of data requires good information reporting. The Barracuda Message Archiver provides comprehensive reports on archiving activity, cost savings, and projected storage growth to help IT optimize how their infrastructure is used and deployed.

Email Agnostic

The Barracuda Message Archiver uses journaling support to capture a real-time copy of all email, supporting standard compliant servers, e.g., Exchange, Office 365, Google Apps, Groupwise, and other solutions that support SMTP or POP.

Cloud Relay

The Barracuda Cloud Relay Service is used as a secure interface to relay mail that was journaled in Microsoft Office 365 or the Google Apps hosted mail service to the Barracuda Message Archiver, allowing local archiving of cloud email applications to reduce costs and enhance security and access.

Outlook Add-in

The Barracuda Message Archiver offers organizations a powerful Microsoft Outlook Add-in that gives end users easy access to archived mail and enables manual stubbing of email items.

Desktop Search

The Barracuda Message Archiver offers organizations running Windows or Mac operating systems an easy-to-use search tool that allows the end user to find historic or current mail.
