We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Overall, it is a very good solution. It is a simple solution and very easy to set up."
"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 feature for us is the DNS-based protection."
"Some clients only want DNS security, while others want more of the advanced features that it has available."
"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."
"It offers good visibility for the Administrator. The administrator has full visibility of what is blocked or has the knowledge of where users go when they are surfing the internet."
"The solution is extremely stable. It has excellent performance."
"One of the valuable features of the solution is that everything is on the cloud. It has no on-premise hardware to deal with."
"The solution has some useful features, such as microservices. They have sandboxing that allows the prevention, encryption, and remote browser isolation."
"It is for secure web trafficking, and it is doing what it needs to do. It allows customers to consolidate and eliminate multiple technologies onto Netskope and just kind of turn the dial and use more features, such as CASB, VPN. SWG is another feature. You can monitor and govern all the traffic."
"We've found the solution to be quite stable."
"It's much faster and more secure than legacy solutions. It is also quite stable and scalable as well. We are able to see all the traffic in one place."
"It's great that we can make sure a machine meets the minimum requirements before users are allowed to log in."
"Security is absolutely spot-on, really top-notch. It's the result of all the components that come together, such as the HIP [Host Information Profile] and components like Forcepoint, providing end-user content inspection, and antivirus. It incorporates DLP features and that's fantastic because Prisma Access makes sure that all of the essential prerequisites are in place before a user can log in or can be tunneled into."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to join your network and provide access through the VPN."
"The most valuable feature is the zero-trust part of this solution."
"The scalability of the solution is excellent."
"The users can securely access any cloud data centers or cloud platforms. In terms of the features, it has all the features that Palo Alto Next-Generation Firewall has. It is also very stable and scalable."
"We're now able to go after contracts that require a Zero Trust solution and Prisma's other technology solutions."
"I would like to see integration with SecurNX in the future."
"If the security issues are taken care of it would be better."
"The pricing could always be a little bit better."
"There are cheaper solutions in the market"
"It should have more integrations with multiple end user OEMs."
"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."
"I would like to see more integrability with other products."
"Missing a real data leakage prevention solution."
"Cost competitiveness is its area of improvement. They will have to figure out how can they strategically price it because there are a few players in the game who have been doing it for a long time. They will have to figure out how to go to market on the pricing."
"The stability of the solution to be very good. It is not the best and could improve but it is better than other solutions, such as Forcepoint."
"The initial setup is a bit complex in that it takes a lot of time. In order to get the product to work as you need it to, there is a lot of configuration required."
"The solution could improve the features for Zero Trust Network Access. They should add more security components to that module."
"It would be nice to manage Prisma Access through the cloud instead of through Panorama. You can use the cloud version to monitor Prisma Access, but it doesn't have all the features yet, and it's not 100% done."
"There can be some latency issues with the solution that should be improved."
"When it comes to the VPN, it uses the global protect VPN functionality to connect remotely, but it has a feature limitation for assigning multiple IP sub-links to different user groups. It would be much better if we are able to assign the current IP blocks for the sub-links based on the user groups."
"The cloud setup is straightforward, and the onboarding process is much better, but the on-premises initial setup is slightly complex."
"Prisma's integration between operational technology and IT should be more seamless. Right now, it requires additional setup and maintenance."
"There is some particular traffic that the security team wants to filter out and apply their own policies and they cannot."
"The solution needs to be more compatible with other solutions. This is specifically a problem for us when it comes to healthcare applications. They have proprietary connection types and things of that nature that make compatibility a challenge sometimes."
"Better integration with the MDM solution would be useful."
"In the region I'm from, that of EMAR, Europe, the Middle East, Eastern Asia and Africa, our organizations do not have many liquid cash assets, so the price could be better."
"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."
"Cisco uses subscription models for the pricing and there are three subscription plans."
"The price is quite good."
"I think it's worth the money."
"There is a subscription cost."
"The licensing part for Umbrella is really flexible."
"Pricing depends on the automation requirements of the organization."
"We pay a licensing fee of $10,000 on a yearly basis."
"The license model is based on the number of users. You have the possibility to have 10,000 users if you wish."
"Prisma Access is a little bit expensive."
"It's pricey, it's not cheap. But you get what you pay for."
"The solution requires a license and the technical support has extra costs. The licensing model could improve."
"The price has been good for the ROI during these difficult times for the cruise industry. There are no hidden costs; what the product offers is what you get."
"This is not an expensive product and everything is included with one license."
