I have been using [Avast Secure Web Gateway (SWG)] for a very long
time in my organization, it is very easy to use with having the interface
created on a very advanced module. Designed with much-modernized UI and dashboard
is very pleasing to use and to have the best experience on it.

We are a healthcare organization so it is very important that we are HIPPA compliant with our data via email/web based. For non-medical related issues sometimes we get items we do need blocked by the program.

Cons

Avast SWG

  • The major drawback of using Avast secure web gateway that it sometimes slows down the system in blocking web threats.
  • Secondly, it is hard to set up the first time as it takes a lot of effort and time to completely integrate with the system to make it fully functional.
  • Starting scanning the web application and organizing network in the background which talks a lot of memory and slows down the other processes.

Barracuda Content Shield

  • The layout is simple but its all one color and there are a lot of tabs that I don't know what they are used for
  • I cant figure out why the Barracuda emails go straight to my junk box, I don't always check it so some emails have gotten lost

I think the program is easy to use, I think there are more functions it can have or better ability to customize the layout so it doesn't look so plain

We chose this package because of our industry, there is a lot of web based information that can get lost or stolen. We want to be compliant and not lose any sensitive information.

Return on Investment

  • I am facing a lot on my organization's websites that it shows a lot of ads on the screen which sometimes got a freeze on the page and takes the whole screen to play which is a lot of time-consuming and slows down the work.
  • Avast Secure Web Gateway [(SWG)] is one of the best protection solutions available in the market to secure network traffic.
