Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The core CASB solution is the most valuable part. It allows us to put policies in place around which devices can log into our cloud applications. We have a policy that states that only company devices can access these cloud applications.""The solution is very good when it comes to securing us against data leakage, because of the other proxy. It also has API scanning or data at rest. It inspects data in motion, which is the proxy, and then it has the data at rest, which is the API scanning. We can inspect for anything we want: file fingerprinting, PHI-sensitive data, PCI-sensitive data. It does not matter. We can usually find it and block it in transit and do our remediation with it. It could either be block, encrypt, or allow and watermark the file to follow it and see where it goes. It allows for those different scenarios.""The biggest thing that I like about this product is that it's easy to use and teach. When we have somebody new starting to work with the product, it's easy to teach them. It's also easy to use the product as it does so much.""The solution’s AJAX-VM provides constant reverse proxy uptime. It has been very positive for our security operations. When people are trying to access the SaaS solution, it protects us from downloading any of that data and experiencing any type of attacks""We are able to verify what is getting saved out onto the cloud. It allows us to have some DLP rules, since we have to be HIPAA compliant. If some personal health information has been uploaded to Office 365, then we are able to detect that sort of thing and account for it. We have set up rules to prevent people from doing that.""The initial setup was straightforward, which was a huge win. That mostly goes to the fact that they are agentless. We didn't have to sit there deploying thousands of agents and all the things that go along with that type of deployment. We were up and running very quickly."

"I like the original functionality, which allows for providing secure DNS services.""The security and access control features.""Stability-wise, it's good. I have never encountered any bugs.""The most valuable feature is the ability to block users from reaching places that they should not even try to reach has been a boon.""What we like most is security and how easy it is to integrate with other appliances.""It's very stable, reliable and does its job.""There is much differentiation within the licensing so if anyone wants DNS security from the DNS security log, we are there already, and if anyone wants to go to a secure internet gateway, that is also available. We can get the integrated cloud DLP license keys. That is a good benefit with Cisco Umbrella. You can get a complete solution in a single licensing.""I like that it integrates with the infrastructure. I also like the kind of data and intelligence that's built-in. It helps create innovative reports for security."

Cons
"Their new SASE (secure access service edge) product would have been the one thing I would have requested. Now that they have that platform, I'd like to see it as integrated and seamless as possible with the core product. That's what they're working towards and that's where we're seeing the advancements.""Integration into different multi-factor authentication tools. On their page, they tout Duo, but I don't use Duo. I use another vendor. Not that they don't interact, but it takes a little bit more doing. Any amount of efficiencies here would help.""I wish they would advance more into the endpoint DLP solution. Currently they do not do anything around endpoint, they're still strictly cloud-based. The forward proxy is really the only thing they do. What I would like to see them do is to scan machines, workstations and servers, for information we might not want on those machines. That would be huge.""In our environment, when an Active Directory password changes, we tend to have some latency issues with access. It takes about 15 minutes before that password is accessible through Bitglass after the change. That would be the major thing I see as a negative.""Initially, we had some challenges that Bitglass resolved quickly. The challenges were around communication. There didn't seem like there was the right level of communication within the Bitglass organization. Once we brought the issues up at a higher level, then they were resolved."

"The pricing is a bit high. Being outside of the USA, we have issues with the exchange rate.""This solution does not give us full, 360-degree protection.""Missing a real data leakage prevention solution.""I would like to see more integration between Cisco Umbrella and Cisco DNA Center.""User interface could be a little smoother and more intuitive.""It could be more secure. It would be better if they provided a transferring proxy as an add-on and more integration.""The price could be better. The price is definitely a bit high, but we have to pay a premium for Cisco products.""It should have more integrations with multiple end user OEMs."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"There is training involved. If you're going to add more people to it, such as cross train more of your group, there's a cost. Other than that, that's it. We have paid exactly what the invoices have said. We signed a three-year contract and not gone above it.""Typically, the longer you price forward, the better off you're going to be. They have been very willing to work with us on pricing.""We have our pricing by user. We do our pricing agreements annually. There are also additional costs for maintenance."

"Pricing depends on the automation requirements of the organization.""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.""There is a subscription cost.""The price could be lower.""Cisco uses subscription models for the pricing and there are three subscription plans.""It has a reasonable price. It is certainly not as expensive as it used to be. It is in line with other offerings on the market. There are a number of different flavors of Umbrella. They could bring Umbrella SIG down a bit because its price is a little bit high for what it does, but I also understand why its price is high.""I think it's worth the money.""The licensing fee is paid on a yearly basis."

Overview

The Bitglass OmniTM multi-protocol proxy architecture ensures that all data, whether accessed from a managed or unmanaged device, is subject to the visibility and control required by the organization, while simultaneously preserving employee privacy across personal applications. Omni Agentless, Bitglass’ reverse proxy capability, leverages patent pending AJAX-VM technology to ensure application resilience. Competitive CASBs either rely entirely on cumbersome agent-based forward proxy solutions, or suffer from breakages and downtime as cloud providers update and change their applications.

OpenDNS provides easy-to-implement Internet navigation and Web security solutions for families, schools, governmental organizations and businesses of all sizes. The services provided by OpenDNS increase the speed of navigating websites and prevent unintended access to phishing and malware sites as well as to any Web content that you configure to be restricted.
