Pricing and Cost Advice
"Cisco Umbrella is expensive and could be cheaper.""The price could be lower.""Cisco uses subscription models for the pricing and there are three subscription plans.""The price depends on the use case, and it's a bit linear. But it depends on the customer's strategy and how Cisco plans to optimize the costs.""The price of Cisco Umbrella is a little higher than similar solutions, like Gateway.""There are three models for licensing with different feature sets.""There is a subscription cost.""The price is quite good."

Information Not Available
"When you buy the subscription, there are no additional costs to add any additional buttons.""There is a significant charge for this product but I think that it's worth it when we look at what it's able to prevent.""If you only wanted the DNS filtering and none of the other products built into Threat Defense, it would be nicer if they could do that a la carte since we are not really using a lot of the solution.""Infoblox BloxOne offers pretty good documentation. Check its documentation, then do a PoC. Infoblox is very good at providing PoCs.""It is a very expensive system. You need to go over the licensing before purchase to make sure you're getting what is needed, not anything extra."
