We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"The pricing is too high."
"When you compare the price of this solution to the price of FortiGate, it's high."
"I know from the manager that the price is too high and that other solutions offer the same features for less."
"Licensing fees are based on the number of users."
"Regarding Cisco price-wise, it is always on a bit on the higher side."
"Cisco Web Security Appliance is not the cheapest solution on the market, but it's well worth it."
