Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The most valuable feature is the website protection capabilities because it prevents end-users from entering bad sites that potentially have malware or could be used for phishing.""Stability-wise, it's good. I have never encountered any bugs.""The solution is very easy to manage. We found the initial setup, for example, to be quite simple.""Cisco Umbrella is absolutely stable.""The user interface is great. It's very easy to tailor to our client's environment and needs.""Cisco Umbrella is a totally different solution. They are the first to come up with this idea of security. It's a totally new concept of security for everybody, for every time, real time, perfectionism.""The most valuable features of this solution are the Web Filtering and the APT.""What we like most is security and how easy it is to integrate with other appliances."

"The security of the solution is perfect. It's very good at protecting us from attacks.""Infoblox offers granularity and advanced DNS protection to mitigate DNS attacks. It's a very secure solution.""DHCP is a basic service, and they've been doing it for years, so it's mature and stable."

"Technical support is pretty good.""It has hundreds of features and many of them are useful.""Netskope is a really good product. I cannot segregate which features are the most valuable. We find most of the features to be valuable. It gives us what we are looking for.""The client size and architectural components in Netskope are far better than other solutions.""The automation offered by the product is pretty solid.""The interface is good.""The feature that I like best is the GUI.""Its deployment is very easy and quick. Their technical support is also very good."

Cons
"User interface could be a little smoother and more intuitive.""Looking at the full umbrella suite in the light of SASE, Secure Access Service Edge, they are clearly lacking in the inline CASB.""I would like them to make some videos, practical videos, the kind with steps that people can use to learn and deploy""Actually, we recently switched over to Zscaler because it has more features and it's more scalable than Cisco Umbrella.""The integration with Cisco could be better.""One of the issues with Umbrella is as you get into endpoint detection and response, such as EDR point solutions, some of them will not integrate well with Umbrella. Sometimes when you want to use technology, such as Always On VPN, it will not work. There are some looming issues as one type of technology starts to crossover with Umbrella. That is the challenge and Umbrella should find a way to be more compatible with some of the endpoint response solutions that are coming out on the market.""It should have more integrations with multiple end user OEMs.""It could be more secure. It would be better if they provided a transferring proxy as an add-on and more integration."

More Cisco Umbrella Cons »

"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."

More Infoblox Advanced DNS Protection Cons »

"The initial setup is complex and should be simplified.""The configuration in the cloud model could be improved upon.""Compatibility with other proxy polars would be helpful.""Lacking in local customer support.""They could improve their mobile agents as they have some limitations.""It should have user behavior analysis and diverse analysis.""The solution is still pretty new to the CASB environment.""There could be better integration with other solutions."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Cisco Umbrella is expensive and could be cheaper.""The price could be lower.""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.""When talking about Cisco solutions in general there pricing model is horrible. For example, you can sell a Meraki-based solution, but if the customer starts shopping around, someone is going to have access to the pricing at a level that you cannot compete because they do not have uniform pricing. Not everybody gets fair pricing. Unless you are one of the real major corporations selling the solution your ability to compete is impossible. Cisco will acknowledge the situation and assure you next time it will be in your favor but it never becomes favorable for you. Cisco is not very good in this regard. However, Umbrella is good.""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.""It has a reasonable price. It is certainly not as expensive as it used to be. It is in line with other offerings on the market. There are a number of different flavors of Umbrella. They could bring Umbrella SIG down a bit because its price is a little bit high for what it does, but I also understand why its price is high.""Cisco uses subscription models for the pricing and there are three subscription plans."

Information Not Available
"They should work on licensing costs.""There is a license required for this solution and there are many licensing models available. For example, what applications are covered as part of the license.""Licensing is on a yearly basis.""The pricing is competitive.""The price of the solution is fair but it depends on your use case."
