Cons
"Missing a real data leakage prevention solution.""Data reporting could be improved.""They need to improve analytics so they report on more of the specifics of user activity.""In the next release, I would like to see the integration of VDI NSX with Cisco Umbrella.""It has happened in the past that Cisco Umbrella has denied us access to secure websites.""The reporting could be improved by way of the information that's displayed. For example, when you pull a report, it shows an internal employee going to many websites, but you can spin that right down by saying a lot of it is being cached.""I would like to see integration with SecurNX in the future.""This solution does not give us full, 360-degree protection."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The licensing part for Umbrella is really flexible.""There are three models for licensing with different feature sets.""Cisco uses subscription models for the pricing and there are three subscription plans.""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 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.""Licensing fees are paid on a yearly basis.""Our licensing fees are on a yearly basis.""Our costs were negotiated, and they are okay."
