Cisco Umbrella Review

Reporting is simplistic. Needs better integration with external threat feeds to improve scoring.

What is our primary use case?

We are in trial mode and use it for a distributed national environment. It provides category and security coverage for endpoints regardless of their location. As a mobile-first workforce, Umbrella always provides DNS-based security, even if endpoints roam in unfriendly waters. 

How has it helped my organization?

It provides centralized, device-agnostic management of the Internet experience. It has the ability to quickly block new threats. 

What is most valuable?

  • Holistic approach
  • DNS fronts most traffic.
  • Quick console
  • Instant management across platform
  • Reporting is simplistic.  

What needs improvement?

  • It needs better integration with external threat feeds to improve scoring. 
  • I would like it to automatically feed to the customer's SIEM. 

For how long have I used the solution?

Trial/evaluations only.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It needs a better price point.
