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 DNS filtering."
"The stability is excellent and the product is very mature."
"When comparing other cloud-based DNS security solutions to this one I have found the main beneficial feature in this solution to be we do not need to change our architecture."
"The solution offers very good self-authentication. It has a lot of protocols and ways to authenticate users by ID, or by Active Directory Integration. It's able to take credentials from the Active Directory Domain Controllers."
"The web content filter is the most valuable feature."
"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 would like to have cloud-based management."
"Every vendor that sells DNS or firewalls needs to be able to protect against DNS look-up attacks and DNS naming hacks. This is true of Palo Alto as well as others."
"There should be an on-premise version of this solution."
"There are some small bugs in the real-time login environment. There is a real-time login and you can see which URLs are blocked or allowed for every user. They should make sure this is resolved in future releases."
"The Oauth1 protocol has a lot of issues with authentication and it made it very difficult to initially authenticate with the API."
"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."
"There is an annual license for the solution and I am satisfied with the pricing."
"The cost could be lower, though it is not currently prohibitive for larger companies."
