Its proxy-free architecture ensures minimal latency.
Barracuda Content Shield delivers advanced web security with a more limited feature-set.
Robust Content Filtering
Content Shield provides advanced DNS filtering and URL filtering that’s always up to date, and uses agent-based filtering to ensure remote users are fully protected even when they are off the network.
Real-Time Threat Intelligence
The solution leverages Barracuda’s unmatched real-time threat intelligence network, along with live heuristic analysis, to ensure that downloaded files and other traffic are free of zero-day malware and other emerging threats.
Centralized management and granular reporting
Content Shield gives you at-a-glance visibility into individual users’ status and activities, and creates customized alerts of malicious threats. Highly flexible and customizable reporting options make it easy to document outcomes, identify high-risk individuals, and more.
Blanket policy enforcement
Content Shield makes it simple to define global, local, group-based, time-based, and individual policies, and enforces those policies transparently across all users and devices, on- or off-network. Optimize your bandwidth by limiting access to non-work-related sites and services.
