Cons
"This solution does not give us full, 360-degree protection.""It should have more integrations with multiple end user OEMs.""They need to improve analytics so they report on more of the specifics of user activity.""The price could be better. The price is definitely a bit high, but we have to pay a premium for Cisco products.""We would like to see the enhancements made to the EDR, as we see features that are running endpoint management.""In the next release, I would like to see the integration of VDI NSX with Cisco Umbrella.""User interface could be a little smoother and more intuitive.""It should have a real-time malware classification engine. It should check the malware on the website. It would be good if it had a real-time malware check for the websites because currently, it just compares the DNS queries of the blacklist. It should also have malware control over file execution and the types of files that the users are allowed to download."

More Cisco Umbrella Cons »

"I would suggest adding more networking and security features that allow more customization within their platform."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""There are three models for licensing with different feature sets.""Cisco uses subscription models for the pricing and there are three subscription plans.""In the region I'm from, that of EMAR, Europe, the Middle East, Eastern Asia and Africa, our organizations do not have many liquid cash assets, so the price could be better.""The price is quite good.""The price could be lower.""I think it's worth the money."
