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 is excellent for any district with a 1:1 Chromebook program. Our program would not be nearly as successful without it. GoGuardian does work with other devices (Windows, iPads) but I believe some features do not work as well in those setups. We haven't tried using it for anything other than Chromebooks and I am not aware of anyone using it for iPad/Windows or Macs.

  • The reporting Dashboard page gives you a great picture of what your users are doing on the internet.
  • The Theft recovery piece works very well and helps recover devices that are missing in action.

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

  • The system cannot inform our team about cyber bullying or harassment.
  • Students can still play some games if those games are loaded to a Google Site.
  • There are times when a Chromebook that hasn't been restarted in a while will not show up online. This is problematic as students do not restart as much as they should.

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 has been leading the way in content filtering for both on and off site with an easy-to-use interface. At the time, it was one of the first to offer cloud-based off-site filtering for Chromebooks. They continue to grow and provide new features every year with great tutorials and updates.

Return on Investment

Barracuda Content Shield

  • Keeping our data more secure
  • Controlling information in and out of the servers

  • It has allowed us to deploy thousands of devices for home and on-premises use successfully. Without this cloud filtering, we would be stuck.
  • The theft recovery piece has allowed us to get our assets back from students that have left the district or that have misused them.
