The Barracuda Content Shield (BCS) Suite is an agent that can be installed on endpoint computers to enable the BCS Plus features, including the ability to synchronize existing LDAP users and groups (see LDAP Active Directory and Barracuda Content Shield for details). The BCS suite for Windows provides two components; either one, or both, can be installed. The Web Filtering Component (WFC) filters and controls web traffic and the Malware Prevention Component (MPC) provides file-based security. If an agent is used inside a network that also has a DNS filtering policy, the WFC policy takes precedence over the DNS network-based policy. The WFC allows for a more granular policy, supporting user- and group-level rules in addition to the global 'Everyone' rule set. You can download the BCS suite from the DOWNLOADS page and install it on the endpoints.
- Malware Prevention Component (MPC) – Local file risk analysis, checking against known malware signatures to provide an additional layer of Malware Prevention. Note that this component is disabled if you set Malware Prevention to Disabled on the THREAT POLICY page. Available for Windows.
- Web Filtering Component (WFC) – Content protection for web traffic. Available for Mac OS and Windows.
