"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

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. Its time to take control of spam.

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

Powerful, Enterprise-Class Solution. Designed by a team of veteran networking engineers, the Barracuda Spam Firewall is a powerful, enterprise-class solution, supporting 30,000 active email users and handling 20 million messages each day. Its architecture leverages open source virus and spam solutions, in conjunction with ten defense layers:

  • Denial of Service and Security Protection

  • IP Block List

  • Rate Control

  • Virus Check with Archive Decompression

  • Barracuda Virus Check

  • User-Specified Rules

  • Spam Fingerprint Check

  • Intent Analysis

  • Bayesian Analysis

  • Rule-Based Scoring

This architecture optimizes 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.

Easy to Use and Maintain. With no software to install and no modifications required to existing email systems, installation is extremely easy, typically taking only five minutes. Once installed, the system administrator uses an intuitive web interface for monitoring and maintenance. The Barracuda Spam Firewall requires minimal maintenance because its innovative design incorporates reliability into every aspect of the product. Energize updates are automatically retrieved by the Barracuda Spam Firewall, enabling maximum spam and virus protection while eliminating administrative overhead. These updates are provided by Barracuda Central, an advanced technology operations center where engineers continuously monitor the Internet for trends in spam and virus attacks.

Affordable. The Barracuda Spam Firewall is affordable for businesses of all sizes—small or large. It has no per user license fees, making it the most affordable enterprise-class spam and virus protection solution available.
