Read what people say are the most valuable features of the solutions they use.
Adrian Larsen says in a Zscaler Web Security review
Chief Executive Officer at a tech services company with 1-10 employees
Zscaler provides a lot of features in terms of control (URL filtering, cloud app control, etc.), which can be found in other solutions as well, but in terms of security, it is quite unique. SSL inspection, Advanced Threat Security, and Cloud Sandbox are probably the most valuable. * SSL inspection is easy to implement and the performance is great (it is the responsibility of Zscaler to provide it). * Advanced Threat Security protects you from most threats that can bypass the classic anti-malware solution. * Cloud Sandbox completes the stack of security requirements stopping zero-day malware.

Mohammed Farooq says in a Forcepoint Web Security review
IT Security Engineer at isit
The most valuable feature of Forcepoint Web Security is creating the easy to install policies that are deployed through the Forcepoint security manual at some stage. Just drag and drop and the policies are there. The cluster is very easy in comparison with other firewalls and the multi-link VPN support is there. View full review »

Most valuable features were content filtering and monitoring. As a government agency, it is highly important that the internet is being used for appropriate reasons and we need to track inappropriate behavior. View full review »
NetworkE6f1e says in a Cisco Umbrella review
Network Engineer/ Administrator at Katalyst Technologies
Threats never come close to your network with security at the DNS level. Like i said above, i used it for a very short time so I cannot comment on the what would've been valuable for us but I was pretty amazed by the wide variety of security features and reports on a single dashboard. Leveraging Custom API and reasons and visibility for each deep visibility for the network was something that caught my eye. View full review »
Joe London says in a Cisco Umbrella review
Network Manager at a K-12 educational company or school with 201-500 employees
* My favorite feature is the command and control callback blocking. It provides protection from crypto attacks by blocking the connection back to the attacker's server giving an added layer of defense. * Policies make the work easier by providing appropriate filters for locations. * The interface is simple, easy to navigate and set up.

The feature which I have found most valuable is the URL filtering policy. This feature: * Gives me a opportunity to make rules for blocking a website where the user should not be able to access it. * Then, McAfee Web Gateway also classifies the sites and categories them. View full review »

DirITSupp876 says in a Cisco Umbrella review
Director of IT Support at a marketing services firm with 501-1,000 employees
We needed the product to enable a whitelist-only browsing mode for certain computers for a client. After that was implemented, I was able to configure a virtual appliance (which became the DNS server) to connect to a local AD server and relate traffic to an AD user name. From there, we could track and monitor where users were going and perform web content filtering to prevent video streaming and certain social media sites. This in turn positively affected productivity. I don’t remember the specific examples of data I was trying to filter out but it was related to ads being hosted by a CDN such as Akamai. Links and images were being hosted there for quicker localized delivery yet the users were not actually going to those sites. Due to that it was showing that those sites were being visited the most, which wasn’t the case. View full review »
