We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The core business of Cisco Umbrella is non-malware. That's all it does: block the malware on the gateway."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is its reliability."
"Using this solution has meant that we've needed to make fewer firewall changes."
"The most valuable feature is that it secures our network against blacklisted or malicious websites."
"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."
"DHCP is a basic service, and they've been doing it for years, so it's mature and stable."
"Infoblox offers granularity and advanced DNS protection to mitigate DNS attacks. It's a very secure solution."
"The security of the solution is perfect. It's very good at protecting us from attacks."
"The most important features for us are preventing DDOS DNS attacks."
"With the model we have, we are able to scale very easily if we need to."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the granularity for which you can categorize what you want to block versus what you don't want to block."
"The dossier feature is perfect for starting an investigation."
"The solution's technical support is not very good."
"Security, overall, can always be improved."
"I would like to see DLP integration in the next release of this solution."
"Support for multiple domains is important to us."
"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 solution is expensive."
"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."
"There should be better alerts for when attacks are happening."
"Endpoint solutions need to improved."
"The dashboard and reporting features need improvement. The user needs more informative dashboards so they can get to the results directly without getting deep in the report to get to the information."
"We would like to see more reporting capabilities that are now offered only with the on-premises reporting appliance."
"The integration of threat intelligence with other solutions is challenging. If I want to expose threat intelligence, I cannot do it via taxi services. I have to call the API, but the customers are not into creating the APIs. The integration of embedded threat intelligence with other platforms should be better. Infoblox should work on this, and it should be easier for the end user to integrate it. It is very easy to deploy this solution. We should be able to integrate it with other platforms, such as the Next-Generation Firewall, with the same ease."
"There is a one-time cost of approximately $800 USD per user, and then a yearly support fee of about $50 per user."
"Our costs were negotiated, and they are okay."
"Our licensing fees are on a yearly basis."
"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."
"The licensing is set up such that you pay for the number of active users that you're defending at the moment."

OpenDNS provides easy-to-implement Internet navigation and Web security solutions for families, schools, governmental organizations and businesses of all sizes. The services provided byincrease 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.
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.
Infoblox DNS Firewall is the leading DNS-based network security solution which effectively contains and controls malware communications and prevents data exfiltration, thereby securing your assets and business. It also provides insights on threats, helps isolate infected devices for remediation, and stays current with the evolving threat landscape through an automated threat intelligence feed.
