"I think it's worth the money."
"Cisco Umbrella is expensive and could be cheaper."
"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."
"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."
"Pricing depends on the automation requirements of the organization."
"There is a subscription cost."
"Cisco uses subscription models for the pricing and there are three subscription plans."
"The price could be lower."
