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."
"The most valuable feature is the ease in the configuration for security roles."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is that it protects against threats that are coming from the web."
"It's a solution that permits making a granular configuration and it is easier to deploy the same configuration on a lot of devices using the central console. It is the master of the product."
"The most valuable is the blocking of blacklisted sites, a URL that is, either by intelligence or by McAfee, detected as a malicious site."
"It has dependable anti-malware and intrusion prevention features all-in-one package."
"The solution does what it's meant to do."
"The solution is not too expensive. It's affordable."
"The most valuable feature is machine learning, which automatically monitors the activity on the machine."
"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."
"We need a better customer experience and more flexibility in the product."
"The solution should be more proactive in regards to sending you updates."
"The configuration could be simplified because it is more complex to make the configuration on McAfee. What can be improved is the support of the agent on smartphones, IOS or Android. That still now is not available yet."
"We used a consultant to help us set it up. Unfortunately, he was not that good. They were out of McAfee people. He was a consultant and knew the product, but he was not a McAfee person. How they managed it and how they worked was not straightforward."
"The manufacturerers should have more transparancy about exactly what is getting filtered when you use the product and why."
"Lacking filter for spam."
"The solution could always use more security features. If it was more secure, it would be an even stronger product."
"The system should generate reports when an attack has been stopped, contained, or removed."
"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."
"$150 Canadian per year."
"I don't remember the exact pricing, but I think that it is approximately $10.00 per user."
