Likelihood to Recommend

Cloudflare

Excellent for managing server loads and site speed for our clients. Most would have to buy bigger hosting packages to handle their busy days, but CloudFlare picks up the traffic and reduces the burden on the server. Most clients can rely on smaller hosting accounts to keep their sites up.

GoGuardian Admin

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.

Pros

Cloudflare

  • Security: Cloudflare keeps our website safe from DDoS attacks and other malicious traffic.
  • CDN: Cloudflare caches our website content, increasing our website's reliability and reducing server load. This saves on bandwidth costs from web servers.
  • Registrar: We can migrate domains to Cloudflare, though they don't currently allow the purchase of new domain names. The benefit of this is cheaper renewal fees and fewer systems involved in managing our domains.

  • 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

Cloudflare

  • Multiple Users - It would be great to be able to have multiple users on one account.
  • Itemized Cache - Would love to see a list of files that have been cached by CloudFlare's CDN and when they will expire. Also nice to optionally remove one or more files from the cache.

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.

  • We've been using a free plan, so we know that we aren't a priority on their list, but we had a severe issue in just one project, and they weren't able to help us with that.
  • We had to remove that website from Cloudflare and use another service since they couldn't help us, and they took a long time to respond to our inquiries.

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

Cloudflare

Cloudflare and CloudFront are both great tools. I would recommend Cloudflare for sites that are not hosted on Amazon, and CloudFront for sites using Amazon Web Services. The pricing and features are comparable. Overall, Cloudflare's free tier offers more services, which gives it a slight edge over the competition.

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.

Return on Investment

Cloudflare

  • Our business has online presences to reassure our customers, not to gain new ones, so the actual ROI is smaller than for most other people.
  • CloudFlare is super easy to use so I can make adjustments on the fly.
  • Safety and security is important and I don't have to worry about a lot of things due to CloudFlare.

  • We would not consider any alternative
  • We will immediately renew when our lease is up
