Barracuda Email Security Gateway

The Barracuda Email Security Gateway is a robust and feature rich platform, does the job it's supposed to do and integrates into existing networks easily. It is not cheap, but valuable performance never is. It is one of the truly "set it and forget it" appliances in my tool set.

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.

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.

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.

The WebUI leaves a bit to be desired, it is utilitarian in nature. Operationally it just works. Install. Setup, wall away knowing your protected.

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.

Through this application, I can keep my computer and system safe during its time of use and it is very helpful when detecting any threat as it has done in my system since its installation, I no longer have any problem due to the damage to my software since Barracuda protects my computer without any problem. In addition to everything with its functionalities, our company has been able to benefit successfully since our teams are in their most optimal operation, giving them better benefit and long duration and not worrying about any type of hacking, thanks to Barracuda we can be calm whenever we navigate in the network without being infected by malware.

ESET Endpoint Security

Device management was a great feature since we are also selling to our customers and managing for them. Puts everything into an easy to read and analyze portal for contacting correct customers to remediate malware on devices as needed. Other products also utilize somewhat the same technology, but our preference after testing a few, was the ESET solution.

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.
