We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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."

More Cisco Umbrella Pros »

"The initial setup is very straightforward.""It's very stable. Sometimes after installing the boxes, we leave them for one or two years. We would just touch the box in the case of the customer needing new requirements or changes to the setup.""The features I find most valuable is WildFire, user integration, and the basic technology features.""The most valuable feature is the zero-trust part of this solution.""The most valuable feature is the ability to join your network and provide access through the VPN.""It's great that we can make sure a machine meets the minimum requirements before users are allowed to log in."

"Our organization finds the application routing features extremely useful.""Overall, it's nice and very user friendly. That's what makes it so successful. They give you complicated features but with a very simple user interface, and that's been a big success for them.""The most valuable aspects of the solution are the next-generation firewall features and geo-blocking capabilities.""Their dashboard is also a good point for us and the customer. The solution is very clean and easy."

Cons
"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."

More Cisco Umbrella Cons »

"Dependencies of applications sometimes is a bit confusing.""Their next release should provide solutions for the mobile environment.""I would like to see better pricing and an easier logging process. Also, if there was a way to log a global log, everything could go onto the system. It would be better if there was a third log, otherwise one would have to do everything manually.""The cloud setup is straightforward, and the onboarding process is much better, but the on-premises initial setup is slightly complex.""Better integration with the MDM solution would be useful.""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."

"The UTM features can be improved. It should offer better functionality.""We are thinking about how to make customers consolidate the loads to an SD-WAN network so that the customers can have bigger chunk from the SD-WAN side so that customers can have critical data be transferred with NPS VPN and non-critical data or some labeled traffic can be transferred by the SD-WAN network. I think it's a very important direction for digital transformation.""The support needs to be improved.""The smaller units lack a lot of functionality.""Another thing that should be improved in Versa are their firewall features."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

More Cisco Umbrella Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The licensing cost is about 18,000 euros.""This is not an expensive product and everything is included with one license."
