    Barracuda Email Security Gateway

    Good combination when using their other products like an incident response. When using automated workflows, this makes creating sender policies a breeze. Unfortunately, this can also be done too well as it may filter out valid emails and to resend or place them back into users' mailbox isn't an easy thing to do even if you attempt to resend through the Email Security Gateway.
    Andrew Nakamura | TrustRadius Reviewer

    ESET Endpoint Security

    In our BYOD office environment, we need to make sure that everyone has sufficient antivirus protection on their machines, and ESET is, hands-down, the best solution for MacOS. I've tried them all and found none better! Needless to say, ESET is just as great for Windows. It even offers support for mobile devices.

    Pros

    Barracuda Email Security Gateway

    • ESS has a simple interface for both users and administrators.
    • The "Manage Quarantine" button in each email is a direct sign-on link, so users don't have to remember their password to manage their quarantine (this is GOLD, Jerry!).
    • The baseline functionality (catching spam/malware/phishing/malware attachments/malformed PDFs etc) is super-solid, with few false positives and few false negatives.
    Bear Golightly | TrustRadius Reviewer

    ESET Endpoint Security

    • Light and quiet protector - ESET is silent, it works in the background without consuming the performance of the machine. Some security and antivirus tools usually consume a lot of machine performance during its scans, ESET is not like that, most of the time you will forget that it is there.
    • No problems with false alerts - ESET has great accuracy compared to other security tools, hardly the false alert, unlike some competitors who are whistling and making scandal without reasons being an extremely annoying experience, with ESET you do not have this problem.
    • Good support staff that responds quickly to any request for help that you make.

    Cons

    Barracuda Email Security Gateway

    • You need to take time in adding your contacts to a whitelist so that you don't miss an email.
    • I recommend changing the time interval; Barracuda notifies you that you have quarantined emails as we were only getting 1 per day and we missed some urgent emails.
    • The quarantine folder is web based, we'd prefer it to have been an add-in for Outlook.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    ESET Endpoint Security

    • The program update procedure can be a bit difficult. It doesn't just auto upgrade major versions, you have to apply them a certain way if you want to manage them via the remote console. Not all the latest versions work with the remote management software.

    So far we have had limited problems the one's we have had we can attribute to poor user judgement not our gateway failing. One of the best features is the Barracuda is intuitive to choices we make on blocking or rejecting emails which is a great feature. lessens are need to repetitively enter the same information

    The WebUI is the only piece I find lacking on the Barracuda ESK. Its is not the fastest and is fairly utilitarian in its approach. The Outlook plug-in, while not in wide use here, causes zero slowdown in Outlook or the Barracuda ESG.

    Barracuda customer support is great. Most of the time when I can an actual tech support representative answers, not some person that will just take a message. If one is not available I will receive a call back in a very short time.

    Do the full scan at the beginning and be prepared to wait until it is done. It will find things you did not know were there. You can leave on the Apple firewall as well as the ESET firewall. There have been no conflicts. Remember to remove emails from being backed up, so you do not have spam on your backup! This was the mistake I made.

    Alternatives Considered

    Barracuda Email Security Gateway

    Barracuda integrates well with Office 365 and mail flow is great. It was the first solution we found that was part of a greater suite to fit all the requirements we had. With the Email Security gateway being in the cloud, it required no extra hardware but also nothing new installed on an endpoint as some solutions require.
    Justin Graves | TrustRadius Reviewer

    ESET Endpoint Security

    It was pre-existing when I came to this company so ESET is dug in deep and removing it would be a process. Defender was nice and is a solution I wouldn't mind moving to. My biggest concern is web protection due to the amount of password compromise request emails the user base gets so have a system that is big on web protection is a must.
    Cameron Council | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Return on Investment

    Barracuda Email Security Gateway

    • Allows us to set it and forget it. We don't have to worry about patch or upgrade to a newer version. Barracuda does it all for us.
    • DLP has been great. That's a risk which is hard to monitor but Barracuda does it effortlessly.
    Rick Sherman | TrustRadius Reviewer

    ESET Endpoint Security

    • I can tell you that the cost to provide this security suite is lower than the other major vendors' product and is a better product.
    • The need to protect your organization from threats is required. The costs associated with recovering from an infection that spreads across the organization, the data loss, the productivity loss, etc., are huge! Don't risk it by "saving money" and taking risks.
