We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The interface is simply amazing."
"Application control allows the administrator to create granular policies based on users to allow, block, or limit access."
"The core business of Cisco Umbrella is non-malware. That's all it does: block the malware on the gateway."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is its reliability."
"Using this solution has meant that we've needed to make fewer firewall changes."
"The most valuable feature is that it secures our network against blacklisted or malicious websites."

"It analyzes the domain security helps us implement the securest policy."
"There should be an improvement in interface integration."
"Most of the time, we are struggling when it comes to getting support."

"Security, overall, can always be improved."
"I would like to see DLP integration in the next release of this solution."
"Support for multiple domains is important to us."

"Licensing fees are paid on a yearly basis."
"Cisco has a model called ELA. With ELA, if you buy the solution you will have the complete security portfolio and you can pay it yearly or after three years, it depends on the contract."
