We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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 implementation is pretty easy."
"I haven't found any issues related to latency or any other issue."
"Some clients only want DNS security, while others want more of the advanced features that it has available."
"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."
"There is much differentiation within the licensing so if anyone wants DNS security from the DNS security log, we are there already, and if anyone wants to go to a secure internet gateway, that is also available. We can get the integrated cloud DLP license keys. That is a good benefit with Cisco Umbrella. You can get a complete solution in a single licensing."
"I like the original functionality, which allows for providing secure DNS services."
"Cisco Umbrella is absolutely stable."
"A very straightforward interface."
"Their technical support is very good."
"The automation offered by the product is pretty solid."
"I have found the most useful features to be the Web Secure Gateway, CASB, infrastructural service scanning, and Zero Trust."
"Technical support is pretty good."
"They are very good at CASB as compared to other players."
"Its deployment is very easy and quick. Their technical support is also very good."
"It's a comprehensive security portfolio solution."
"Their split tunneling feature has been very valuable to our company since implementing the Perimeter 81 solution."
"It could be improved by having a local data center and caching, which can provide protection support. I would like to be able to channel my intel and my network traffic to their clouds, and this feature is not available. Advanced protection or any malware file support, which might be required, is not available."
"This solution does not give us full, 360-degree protection."
"It should have a real-time malware classification engine. It should check the malware on the website. It would be good if it had a real-time malware check for the websites because currently, it just compares the DNS queries of the blacklist. It should also have malware control over file execution and the types of files that the users are allowed to download."
"In the next release, I would like to see the integration of VDI NSX with Cisco Umbrella."
"It should have more integrations with multiple end user OEMs."
"I would like to see more integration between Cisco Umbrella and Cisco DNA Center."
"The integration with Cisco could be better."
"It has happened in the past that Cisco Umbrella has denied us access to secure websites."
"Compatibility with other proxy polars would be helpful."
"They can focus more on ease of admin, ease of use, and ease of migration. Migration should be simple for companies that are using a different platform and would like to move to Netskope. Everyone looks for a simple migration. They can also focus more on cloud services and cloud trends. They have to see the cloud market, and they should try to compete with Zscaler and other players. They should also work on licensing costs."
"They could improve their mobile agents as they have some limitations."
"It should have user behavior analysis and diverse analysis."
"The initial setup is complex and should be simplified."
"There could be better integration with other solutions."
"The configuration in the cloud model could be improved upon."
"The solution is still pretty new to the CASB environment."
"I would suggest adding more networking and security features that allow more customization within their platform."
"The licensing fee is paid on a yearly basis."
"There is a subscription cost."
"Pricing depends on the automation requirements of the organization."
"Cisco Umbrella is expensive and could be cheaper."
"The price could be lower."
"The price depends on the use case, and it's a bit linear. But it depends on the customer's strategy and how Cisco plans to optimize the costs."
"The price of Cisco Umbrella is a little higher than similar solutions, like Gateway."
"I think it's worth the money."
"Licensing is on a yearly basis."
"The price of the solution is fair but it depends on your use case."
"The pricing is competitive."
"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."
"They should work on licensing costs."
"Overall I am very happy with the solution’s flexibility and pricing."
