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

Cons
"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."

More Cisco Umbrella Cons »

"Activating the SSL inspection is one of the challenges. We are currently moving to the O365 cloud, and one of the challenges is the performance when all of our users are connected to O365 by a proxy.""There are performance issues with all of the proxies.""Technical support is an area that requires some improvement.""The user interface could be improved, and the price could be lower as well.""The solution could improve by having better documentation."

More Symantec Proxy Cons »

"The system should generate reports when an attack has been stopped, contained, or removed.""I would like to see better scalability and better performance."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

More Cisco Umbrella Pricing and Cost Advice »

"In terms of cost, it is expensive. Its pricing has been a challenge for us since its acquisition by Broadcom.""It's expensive. Clients often go to other products.""Licensing is based on a subscription.""The price is too expensive compared with that of another solution."

More Symantec Proxy Pricing and Cost Advice »

"I don't remember the exact pricing, but I think that it is approximately $10.00 per user."
