DomainWatch

Intuitive security solution for sharing Google documents

3.3/5 (12 reviews)

DomainWatch Overview

Critical business data is moving to the cloud. While this yields increased productivity through more effective collaboration, it also carries risk of inappropriate data sharing. Critical assets, such as Google Docs, Sites and Calendars can accidentally be shared with people outside your organization or with the Internet at large.

DomainWatch helps to mitigate this risk. DomainWatch addresses an organization’s security and compliance concerns giving Google Apps administrators the ability to monitor the sharing and ownership properties of a domain’s critical Google Docs, Sites and Calendars. The sophisticated Policy Editor allows you to define how your valuable assets can shared both internally and externally, while our regular Scan Report notifies you of any violations of your policies.

Whether you are currently migrating to Google Apps or are an experienced administrator, DomainWatch helps you answer vital security questions such as: who’s sharing assets outside of my domain? who is sharing assets publicly? what companies are my users sharing documents with? and more.

In addition to securing your company's Google Apps domain, DomainWatch keeps Google Apps administrators aware and informed of Google Apps usage and behavior patterns. If you have rolled out Google Docs to your users and hope to keep from renewing your Microsoft Office licenses, wouldn't you like to know how many Google Docs your users are creating? What teams are sharing Google Docs and what teams aren't? Who might need more training?

With Domain Trends, you will stay on top of critical usage patterns that can lead you to cost-saving conclusions.

BetterCloud, best Google support

Used Daily for 6-12 months
Reviewed on 2018/04/09
Review Source: Capterra

BetterCloud is one, if not the best way to manage our Google Accounts

Pros

BetterCloud does most daily Google admin tasks from one place. BetterCloud makes it easy to reset Google passwords, update signatures, manage groups and so much more. Compared to the Google Admin Console, the interface of BetterCloud is much more user friendly. BetterCloud also integrates with other Google products, allowing administrators to update Docs, Sheets, Forms ect without ever logging into the users account. This is just the tip of the iceberg, BetterCloud makes it easy to create user accounts while applying company templates such as signatures. BetterCloud offers more complex functionality which as a user of 12 months, I haven't had to use myself yet. However, it is good to know that there is more to the product

Cons

One of the cons of BetterCloud can also be considered a Pro. BetterCloud is constantly updating and adding additional features, as a result, it can be hard to keep up with recent changes

Ok tool, but Buyer Beware

Used Daily for 2+ years

I WOULD NEVER BUY FROM THEM AGAIN - BUYER BEWARE! We have a standard Google for Business domain, which they never fully integrated with. Most of their so-called tools, didn't work right and the one that did kind of work was the email monitoring, but even then, the users' email that you are monitoring is simply the tool sending you a TXT file of incoming and outgoing emails, it's can't un decrypt incoming so those are worthless, it doesn't show you attachments, etc - bottom line, I can read my users outgoing emails, but because everything is so generic and in txt files, I literally have to open EVERY SINGLE EMAIL and sort through 1/2 code and 1/2 text. Can't see the attachments referenced, etc. Expensive tool.

But that's not the worst. BE AWARE - once you sign up, you pay a fee per year. 30 days prior to your subscription being renewed, you are sent an email, just like every other monthly email that is basically worthless, that reminds you they require 30-day notification for cancellation. NOTE - YOU PAY FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR AT ONCE, SO IF YOU DON'T CANCEL THAT SAME DAY AS THE NOTICE, YOU ARE STUCK WITH ANOTHER ENTIRE YEAR OF PAYMENTS.

When I asked customer service about this, as I don't need the email monitoring anymore, they basically said, "oops, you missed your 30-day window, so you have to pay for the whole year now, so let's talk about more services we can provide you, aka pay for". TOTAL BS!!!

FINALLY, there is ZERO place on the site to cancel your membership. You literally have to email them, provide in writing, a notice of cancellation 30 days before it is set to renew. In 2017, do we really need to write an email or send a fax to cancel a subscription? Hell, my cheaper subscription services have cancellation components built into their apps, why can't this one.

Cons

Horrible customer service
Integration with the Google Domain was poor at best

The Better way to manage Google Apps For Business

Used Daily for 2+ years
Reviewed on 2017/09/05
Review Source: Capterra

Single Pane of Google Apps for Business management without the "Pain" of using google's admin page.

Pros

Simpler to use than the google Admin page. This package allows for multiple users with varying levels of access. It is hooked into the Google API and makes it easy for my admins to make needed account changes.

Cons

Sometimes sync with Google can be slow when performing many transactions. Also the "May I help You?" popups can be annowing. If I want to chat with someone I'll chat with someone. You need to assume that anyone using this software is saavy enough to hit the help button when they need to.

A nice app for gsuite management

Used Daily for 2+ years
Reviewed on 2019/02/21
Review Source: Capterra

Pros

As a gsuite admin it was nice to be able to see at a quick glance if people were sharing docs or forwarding emails they shouldnt' be and to have the ability to setup alerts when it happened. It had a nice UI that made setting up and navigating these changes a breeze.

Cons

They are always updating and adding new features, some are included other are pay to use type of upgrades. Same with integrations often we'd find an integration we wanted to utilize only to be told by our success manager it was considered an addon.

Bettercloud makes GSuite Management much easier

Used Daily for 2+ years

We have thought of going without Bettercloud, but everytime we recognized the high value it provides - it would be tough to live without it.

Pros

Bettercloud was a life saver when we moved over to GSuite- the Google Admin just wasn't cutting it with all the features and needs we had, but Bettercloud provides everything we need.

Cons

The user interphase took a little getting used to, but once I located what I needed, it's been great
