If you are looking for something relatively inexpensive to lock down specific computers, it would be a useful tool. If the computers themselves aren't too locked down, implementation and management shouldn't be too difficult.

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

ContentProtect

  • The client is relatively light weight and doesn't impact other applications.
  • The client isn't easily bypassed, so the user's are kept under restrictions.
  • The configuration is relatively simple and easy to deploy.

  • 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

ContentProtect

  • Our primary policy is a restricted list, so that does as advertised. We had one location that had blocks based on categories (adult, illegal, etc). We continually had issues with sites getting completely blocked due to unrelated content. For example, Yahoo had a beer ad on the page, alcohol was blocked, so Yahoo became blocked for the period of time that ad was displayed. We had this happen multiple times and eventually switched to a different solution at that location.
  • I've had issues with their cloud portal not working. I don't have to edit our configuration often, but on numerous occasions, i was unable to get the configuration page to load after login, sometimes for days. The platform just wasn't stable when I needed it to be.
  • We run many of our remote rooms as frozen (after logoff they reset to the image). This works fine most times, but when content protect needs a configuration change pushed down, someone needs to go 'thaw' the computers, download the updated configuration, and re-'freeze' the computer. It would be nice if that information was just dynamic from the cloud and didn't need to be pulled down.
  • The categorization used for policies is very limited and not flexible or easily customizable.
  • I could never get the usage reporting to work.

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.

Alternatives Considered

ContentProtect

At the time ContentProtect was selected, Forcepoint (Websense at the time) didn't have an inexpensive or cloud type product. The same can be said with Cisco, at that time. Recently, we have reevaluated and are going to be transitioning to Forcepoint's mobile client and removing ContentProtect from our environment. The cost is actually now less and we will be able to get both more dynamic control and also give us more detailed reporting on the traffic from clients.

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

ContentProtect

  • It was a relatively inexpensive and simple solution when we needed one relatively quickly, which is a positive. The inexpensive price has kept it in the environment.
  • The lack of reliable reporting has lead to the need for an alternate monitoring solution in a few cases. Network level reporting was used, which is a separate expense, configuration.
  • Time has been lost waiting on the portal and then troubleshooting support tickets when sites that shouldn't have been blocked have been blocked. It has resulted in changes for locations that needed dynamic category filtering as opposed to a finite list.
  • The blocking of sites based on add traffic or sub-sites (rather than just blocking that content like other solutions) has resulted in downtime during classes when those sites were listed in the lesson plan and had previously worked.
