We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable features are the protection against ransomware and phishing."
"It will protect, give you more robustness, and faster responses, compared to any firewalls or any of the proxy web servers."
"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."
"Generally, most of our customers are happy with it though."
"The most valuable aspect for us is the fact that the product seamlessly integrates with the Forcepoint DLP."
"The monitoring and threat protection were the solution's most valuable features."
"The ability to monitor for threats is the solution's most valuable aspect."
"The active directory integration is very valuable as we can connect to the list of users that we have and the cloud control, the blocking, the access control of the cloud, can be handled by this product."
"I would like to see a graphical representation of the entire network."
"It would be useful if they had a malware protection engine running inside their own VM."
"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."
"Integration is an area of the solution that needs to be improved."
"The solution needs to be easier to install, and they need to clean up the backend, so stuff doesn't break."
"The data security needs improvement. We should be able to leverage it a bit better for situations where someone may be trying to upload documents onto the cloud application."
"The solution should work to incorporate some machine learning policies like IDM and VML."
"It's a niche product. Not many people use it, and therefore there isn't as much of a knowledge base surrounding it."
"Licensing fees are paid on a yearly basis."
"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."
"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 pricing really depends on the size of the customer's business because it is price-relevant to the environment."
