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."

Overview

OpenDNS provides easy-to-implement Internet navigation and Web security solutions for families, schools, governmental organizations and businesses of all sizes. The services provided by OpenDNS increase the speed of navigating websites and prevent unintended access to phishing and malware sites as well as to any Web content that you configure to be restricted.   

The scale, frequency and sophistication of volumetric DNS attacks are increasing rapidly, being amplified by the fast-growing deployments of unsecured IoT devices, mobility and BYOD. DNS service has become one of the most targeted application-layers by hackers, and specifically for layer 7 DDoS attacks.

While most organizations are aware of DDoS attack security risks, the majority of them have not deployed modern DNS DDoS protection solutions and are still using traditional enterprise network security solutions such as firewalls, which are not designed for the DNS protocol.

New DDoS mitigation techniques must be deployed to tackle these threats. Only purpose-built DNS protection solution offering both high performance and advanced analytics can efficiently and proactively strengthen business continuity, data confidentiality and user experience to the level your company deserves.

Automatically secure your DNS traffic by using Palo Alto Networks DNS Security service, a cloud-based analytics platform providing your firewall with access to DNS signatures generated using advanced predictive analysis and machine learning, with malicious domain data from a growing threat intelligence sharing community.
