We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"The initial setup is very easy and takes only a few minutes."
"Helps block personal email accounts."
"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."
"Zscaler Web Security protects our users in remote locations from internet threats - even if they are not connected to our network."
"The scanning feature is impressive, because they do not introduce a big latency to the traffic."
"The security is excellent."
"The VPN is valuable, as the whole technology is very different from a traditional VPN."
"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."
"Missing a real data leakage prevention solution."
"Data reporting could be improved."
"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."
"Another thing that I would like to see is if Zscaler could have a separate product for direct access. I looked at a private access solution, but I understand there's a separate product that isn't integrated with this."
"I would like to see the ability to choose a pool of IPs for my company, set up rules based on them, and know that those IPs are not used by other companies."
"I don't know whether it's Zscaler or not, however, sometimes I can't access my time management. I need to wait and try again a few hours later. Typically, if I let some time pass, I can access it again."
"There are a few features that are not compatible with the Azure cloud."
"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 really depends on the size of the customer's business because it is price-relevant to the environment."
"Our monthly fee is around R3000."
