Most Helpful Review
A SaaS-friendly tool that integrates well with DLP but better integration with on-premise tools is needed
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
It will protect, give you more robustness, and faster responses, compared to any firewalls or any of the proxy web servers.
The most valuable features are the protection against ransomware and phishing.
The most valuable feature is that it secures our network against blacklisted or malicious websites.
Using this solution has meant that we've needed to make fewer firewall changes.
The most valuable feature of this solution is its reliability.
The core business of Cisco Umbrella is non-malware. That's all it does: block the malware on the gateway.
It has helped reduce my unit's security events.
Threats never come close to your network with security at the DNS level.
It gives us visibility into how the data is being used within our cloud environment.
It also prevents you from writing data to your Gmail and does not allow you to move your data outside of the corporate system. That is the most important feature for me.
There is [a feature] called cloud registry where we can see a risk assessment for the cloud services being used. If we want to add a new cloud service or a new cloud application, we can check into it and do an assessment through the cloud registry.
It help us monitor high risk services, blocking them, and also feeding them to our egress points.
The risk rating of each cloud application has been very useful. Whenever we discover a new application is use, we are able to quickly determine if this application is safe to use and whether or not we should allow our end users to be able to access it.
We have gained a deep insight into our Shadow IT usage as well as the different activities involved in Office 365.
Without Skyhigh, we had zero visibility, but now we are aware of so much more.
Skyhigh has given us categorization and rating of websites separate from what the web proxy places on the logs.
It would be useful if they had a malware protection engine running inside their own VM.
I would like to see a graphical representation of the entire network.
Support for multiple domains is important to us.
I would like to see DLP integration in the next release of this solution.
Security, overall, can always be improved.
The solution's technical support is not very good.
Some countries don't have a DNS server leading to a domain resolution IP, not at a local level.
Its DNS service does not support IPv6 query.
The biggest challenge we have with McAfee is their cross-cloud support.
I would like to see more power being given to the admin. In the sense that in case an employee is facing an issue and they want to configure a service, like attaching an email in Gmail, for example, they should be given the option to make the service request and get that configured on the go.
The only thing we have faced is that sometimes, randomly, the portal becomes too slow.
Needs integration with other technology ecosystems.
Though the Skyhigh Dashboard is processing large amounts of data, the speed of the Dashboard could be improved.
It would be nice to be able to get more advanced search functions to filter out data and quickly obtain the data that we need.
The tool could improve flexibility with the creation of reports/querying data.
Pricing and Cost Advice
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.
There is a one-time cost of approximately $800 USD per user, and then a yearly support fee of about $50 per user.
The price could be lower.
The product is pricey compared to Cisco Firepower.
It needs a better price point.
The licensing fees are based on what environments you are monitoring.
They definitely charge a huge amount. All the security service providers charge a huge amount.
Have a risk-based approach towards pricing.
