We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Cisco Umbrella is a totally different solution. They are the first to come up with this idea of security. It's a totally new concept of security for everybody, for every time, real time, perfectionism.""The implementation is pretty easy.""Provides dependable DNS monitoring of external devices.""It analyzes the domain security helps us implement the securest policy.""Some clients only want DNS security, while others want more of the advanced features that it has available.""The initial setup is very easy and takes only a few minutes.""The most valuable feature is the ability to block users from reaching places that they should not even try to reach has been a boon.""I like that it integrates with the infrastructure.

"The capability of Akamai Enterprise Application Access is what you're looking for, it's giving you the service that you're looking for. It's simple and doesn't use an agent. It uses LCSD responders, and they have a lot of services around the globe. That's the reason that we were very interested in using it because it has a lot of coverage. This is because it's under the GDS umbrella."

"It's a comprehensive security portfolio solution.""Netskope is a really good product. I cannot segregate which features are the most valuable. We find most of the features to be valuable. It gives us what we are looking for.""The automation offered by the product is pretty solid.""Technical support is pretty good.""I have found the most useful features to be the Web Secure Gateway, CASB, infrastructural service scanning, and Zero Trust.""They are very good at CASB as compared to other players.""It has hundreds of features and many of them are useful.""The feature that I like best is the GUI."

Cons
"I would like them to make some videos, practical videos, the kind with steps that people can use to learn and deploy""It should have more integrations with multiple end user OEMs.""They need to improve analytics so they report on more of the specifics of user activity.""We would like to see the enhancements made to the EDR, as we see features that are running endpoint management.""If the security issues are taken care of it would be better.""I would like to see more integrability with other products.""I think it's a very basic solution, and because of that, Cisco Umbrella would not be a suitable solution for large companies.""I would like to see integration with SecurNX in the future."

"We need another approach to bring the solution to the cloud. In addition to Access Management, we would like to see if we can jump into Directories. I think ADs are going to go away and everything is going to be cloud-based and minimize the use of ADs because of the cost and some other dependencies to the cloud. Every time you buy AD it is more hardware, and everything's changing to software. The network's changing, the applications are changing, and for IT it is hard to keep up with it."

"Lacking in local customer support.""They can focus more on ease of admin, ease of use, and ease of migration. Migration should be simple for companies that are using a different platform and would like to move to Netskope. Everyone looks for a simple migration. They can also focus more on cloud services and cloud trends. They have to see the cloud market, and they should try to compete with Zscaler and other players. They should also work on licensing costs.""They could improve their mobile agents as they have some limitations.""There should be some granular custom roles that are not available. However, this is on the road map. There are many devices that do not have the Zero Trust feature and other enhancements available which they should have.""Setting up policies is something that we having been doing, and if the vendor were to provide example use cases that included different implementation options then it would be very useful for us.""The solution is still pretty new to the CASB environment.""The initial setup is complex and should be simplified.""There could be better integration with other solutions."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I think it's worth the money.""The price of Cisco Umbrella is a little higher than similar solutions, like Gateway.""It has a reasonable price. It is certainly not as expensive as it used to be. It is in line with other offerings on the market. There are a number of different flavors of Umbrella. They could bring Umbrella SIG down a bit because its price is a little bit high for what it does, but I also understand why its price is high.""Cisco Umbrella is expensive and could be cheaper.""There is a subscription cost.""When talking about Cisco solutions in general there pricing model is horrible. For example, you can sell a Meraki-based solution, but if the customer starts shopping around, someone is going to have access to the pricing at a level that you cannot compete because they do not have uniform pricing. Not everybody gets fair pricing. Unless you are one of the real major corporations selling the solution your ability to compete is impossible. Cisco will acknowledge the situation and assure you next time it will be in your favor but it never becomes favorable for you. Cisco is not very good in this regard. However, Umbrella is good.""The price is quite good.""The licensing part for Umbrella is really flexible."

"The price is great it is all-inclusive, they use an enterprise cost model. That's what we like compared to other users. This is one of the main attractions of Akamai Enterprise Application Access. It's already an enterprise cost model established with us for services."

More Akamai Enterprise Application Access Pricing and Cost Advice »

"There is a license required for this solution and there are many licensing models available. For example, what applications are covered as part of the license.""They should work on licensing costs.""The price of the solution is fair but it depends on your use case.""Licensing is on a yearly basis.""The pricing is competitive."
