Email has undoubtedly become a key tool for communications among companies worldwide. However, with frequent virus attacks and the alarming rate that spam has been filling up inboxes, email is quickly becoming a less efficient means of communicating. In fact, the Radicati Group, a market research firm in Palo Alto, California, predicts that by 2007, there will be 50 billion spam messages each day, costing companies almost $200 billion per year. This is simply astounding and unacceptable. Itís time to take control of spam.

The Barracuda Spam Firewall is an integrated hardware and software solution that has the power of an enterprise class solution, and the ease-of-use and affordability that businesses of all sizes demand.
