Barracuda Content Shield

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.

GoGuardian Admin is perfect for any school looking to deploy a 1 to 1 setting where students take chromebooks home or if they travel from classroom to classroom with them. It would not be needed at home or in the business world or schools that have chromebooks but do not travel from room to room.

Cons

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

Does what we need it to do and more in a very cost-effective manner. Relatively easy to use and great customer support. They are quick and clear and will walk you through things in real time.

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

GoGuardian support is the best in the business. Within seconds of the business day I can chat with a human being about any issue.

Alternatives Considered

Barracuda Content Shield

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.

GoGuardian Admin

When we were first looking for a cloud filtering solution, there were not many competitors out there. We looked at Securly, but at the time, they did not match up. GoGuardian Admin had far more features (that would benefit us) at that time. I know there are more solutions available now, but I have not looked into any recently. The elements of GoGuardian Admin that seemed to stand out were the Youtube filter, the Teacher classroom management piece, and the Theft Recovery. Over time I believe they scaled back the Theft Recovery piece due to privacy concerns, but it still functions very well.
