We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature for us is the DNS-based protection."
"It analyzes the domain security helps us implement the securest policy."
"The weekly reportings are great. The investigation is super and the application management is equally great."
"It's very stable, reliable and does its job."
"What we like most is security and how easy it is to integrate with other appliances."
"Provides dependable DNS monitoring of external devices."
"The initial setup is very easy and takes only a few minutes."
"Helps block personal email accounts."
"It's a comprehensive security portfolio solution."
"A very straightforward interface."
"It has hundreds of features and many of them are useful."
"Technical support is pretty good."
"They are very good at CASB as compared to other players."
"Their technical support is very good."
"Its deployment is very easy and quick. Their technical support is also very good."
"The feature that I like best is the GUI."
"The quarantine feature is the solution's most valuable aspect."
"This solution does not give us full, 360-degree protection."
"I would like to see integration with SecurNX in the future."
"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."
"It has happened in the past that Cisco Umbrella has denied us access to secure websites."
"In the next release, I would like to see the integration of VDI NSX with Cisco Umbrella."
"They need to improve analytics so they report on more of the specifics of user activity."
"Missing a real data leakage prevention solution."
"Data reporting could be improved."
"Compatibility with other proxy polars would be helpful."
"Lacking in local customer support."
"The initial setup is complex and should be simplified."
"The configuration in the cloud model could be improved upon."
"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."
"Setting up policies is something that we having been doing, and if the vendor were to provide example use cases that included different implementation options then it would be very useful for us."
"The TLS encryption needs to be improved. It's not state of the art."
"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."
"There are three models for licensing with different feature sets."
"I think it's worth the money."
"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."
"There is a subscription cost."
"They should work on licensing costs."
"The pricing is competitive."
"Licensing is on a yearly basis."
"The price of the solution is fair but it depends on your use case."
"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."
