Cons
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.I would like to see integration with SecurNX in the future.This solution does not give us full, 360-degree protection.It would be useful if they had a malware protection engine running inside their own VM.I would like to see a graphical representation of the entire network.Support for multiple domains is important to us.I would like to see DLP integration in the next release of this solution.Security, overall, can always be improved.

More Cisco Umbrella Cons »

We have a lot of false positives, which is one area that can be improved.Sometimes attacks or a new ransomware gets through.In the on-premises version, I don't like the deployment and structuring of the device.Overall the software is occupying too much memory space. If they could remedy that, it would be a better experience, because today Windows is occupying too much memory space as well (in terms of the RAM), and this software has also started occupying all the memory. Due to this, I have less space for my other office products and data. I can't, for example, operate a huge Excel sheet or other datasets.The deployment is a bit complex and it requires expertise to deploy, which is something that should be improved and made easier to do.The solution should be better able to support itself and operate faster. Sometimes the technical support team takes too long to respond.The firewall doesn't have any features because some customers are requesting they will install the firewall without licensing. At this time we cannot go further without licensing. Licensing is a must with Forcepoint Web Security firewalls.Ease of use could be improved.

More Forcepoint Web Security Cons »

There should be better alerts for when attacks are happening.There needs to be more capabilities in order to configure the console itself instead of the user interface dashboard. Configuring the DNS or DHCP through the console instead of the GUI dashboard would be better.The solution is expensive.

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.Licensing fees are paid on a yearly basis.Our licensing fees are on a yearly basis.Our costs were negotiated, and they are okay.There is a one-time cost of approximately $800 USD per user, and then a yearly support fee of about $50 per user.The price could be lower.The product is pricey compared to Cisco Firepower.

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.   

Websense Web Security blocks web threats to reduce malware infections, decrease help desk incidents and free up valuable IT resources. It has more than 100 security and filtering categories, hundreds of web application and protocol controls, and 60-plus reports with customization and role-based access.

DNS is one of the fastest growing attack vectors because it’s essential for network connectivity, and current security solutions are not designed to protect it. Distributed denial of service (DDoS) and other external and internal DNS-based threats can flood your DNS server with malicious requests, bringing down your network. These attacks can redirect users to harmful Internet destinations, exfiltrate data, and expose your customers and business to additional risks. Security technologies such as NextGen firewalls, IPS, and generic DDoS solutions do not understand DNS and are unable to prevent specific attacks such as DNS cache poisoning, DNS hijacking, reflection attacks, amplification attacks, and many others.

With Infoblox Advanced DNS Protection, you can comprehensively defend your DNS server from the widest range of DNS-based attacks, while maintaining service availability and business continuity.
