We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"The most valuable features are the protection against ransomware and phishing."
"It will protect, give you more robustness, and faster responses, compared to any firewalls or any of the proxy web servers."
"The most valuable feature for us is the DNS-based protection."
"It analyzes the domain security helps us implement the securest policy."
"The cyber security features they offer are most trusted"
"In terms of functionality, Forcepoint is the best web proxy available."
"The most valuable feature is the categorization, where you can allow general access to an application but limit specific features."
"For the most part, the solution, when set up correctly, works fine."
"Once deployed, the management console is simple and easy to use."
"The antiviral sandboxing."
"The spam filter is very effective."
"The feature that I find to be most valuable is the flexibility of the single endpoint."
"It has got a really good URL categorization database. It is simple to set up. It is also easy to use and quite intuitive. It has got a nice utility for troubleshooting."
"The solution's technical support is not very good."
"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."
"I would like to see a graphical representation of the entire network."
"It would be useful if they had a malware protection engine running inside their own VM."
"This solution does not give us full, 360-degree protection."
"I would like to see integration with SecurNX in the future."
"Setup is not that difficult, but it really requires proper technical training."
"The solution should be better able to support itself and operate faster. Sometimes the technical support team takes too long to respond."
"The deployment is a bit complex and it requires expertise to deploy, which is something that should be improved and made easier to do."
"Overall the software is occupying too much memory space. If they could remedy that, it would be a better experience, because today Windows is occupying too much memory space as well (in terms of the RAM), and this software has also started occupying all the memory. Due to this, I have less space for my other office products and data. I can't, for example, operate a huge Excel sheet or other datasets."
"In the on-premises version, I don't like the deployment and structuring of the device."
"Sometimes attacks or a new ransomware gets through."
"We have a lot of false positives, which is one area that can be improved."
"Stability needs some improvement, we have on occasion experienced some delay when it is synchronized."
"We are using a V10000 G3 appliance. It is just a proxy. It is just HTTP, FTP, and HTTPS. Now, as our website has developed and we are using rich time-connectivity protocols, the proxy doesn't have the ability to work with these protocols. It would be nice if the UDP feature was there for it to filter UDP traffic. It needs firewall capabilities for UDP filtering. Its upgrades can be quite complex, and they don't always go as per the plan. Its reporting could be a bit more granular."
"There is a one-time cost of approximately $800 USD per user, and then a yearly support fee of about $50 per user."
"Our costs were negotiated, and they are okay."
"Our licensing fees are on a yearly basis."
"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."
"I am not sure, I don't have the numbers in front of me, but I think it's $1.00 or so per device/month."
"Cisco uses subscription models for the pricing and there are three subscription plans."
"The licensing part for Umbrella is really flexible."
"The licensing is not expensive."
"The price of this product should be reduced to make it more competitive."
"Licensing is flexible. License pricing information is based on the customer, their environment, and on the future approach."
"The solution is priced a little high compare to similar solutions."
"Overall, I am not aware of the option to pay for one time use of Forcepoint Secure Web Gateway."
"The price of this solution is reasonable."
