Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The most valuable feature for us is the DNS-based protection.""It analyzes the domain security helps us implement the securest policy.""The weekly reportings are great. The investigation is super and the application management is equally great.""It's very stable, reliable and does its job.""What we like most is security and how easy it is to integrate with other appliances.""Provides dependable DNS monitoring of external devices.""The initial setup is very easy and takes only a few minutes.""Helps block personal email accounts."

"DHCP is a basic service, and they've been doing it for years, so it's mature and stable.""Infoblox offers granularity and advanced DNS protection to mitigate DNS attacks. It's a very secure solution.""The security of the solution is perfect. It's very good at protecting us from attacks."

Cons
"This solution does not give us full, 360-degree protection.""I would like to see integration with SecurNX in the future.""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.""It has happened in the past that Cisco Umbrella has denied us access to secure websites.""In the next release, I would like to see the integration of VDI NSX with Cisco Umbrella.""They need to improve analytics so they report on more of the specifics of user activity.""Missing a real data leakage prevention solution.""Data reporting could be improved."

More Cisco Umbrella Cons »

"The solution is expensive.""There needs to be more capabilities in order to configure the console itself instead of the user interface dashboard. Configuring the DNS or DHCP through the console instead of the GUI dashboard would be better.""There should be better alerts for when attacks are happening."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""There are three models for licensing with different feature sets.""I think it's worth the money.""The price of Cisco Umbrella is a little higher than similar solutions, like Gateway.""The price should be slightly lower than the current price because if you look at the whole solution, it is simply a threat intelligence solution to block blacklisted things. The price should be lower looking at the features provided by the solution. The price isn't too high either, but it could be lower.""There is a subscription cost."
