Barracuda Networks offers two levels of participation, platinum and gold partnerships. Each reseller will be Spam Defense authorized and trained, and be able to participate in joint-marketing initiatives.

About the Barracuda Spam Firewall
The Barracuda Spam Firewall supports from 1,000 to 10,000 active users with no per user licensing fees. The Barracuda Spam Firewall can be installed in front of the email server in typically less than five minutes and is automatically updated hourly to block new forms of spam and viruses. Its architecture leverages open source virus and spam solutions in conjunction with eight defense layers. The eight defense layers are: denial of service and security protection, IP block list, rate control, virus check with archive decompression, proprietary virus check, user specified rules, spam fingerprint check and a spam rule-based scoring system with Bayesian analysis. The architecture minimizes the processing of each email, which yields the performance required to process millions of messages per day. Unlike software solutions, the Barracuda Spam Firewall reduces the load placed on the email server by off-loading both spam and virus filtering.
