Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"We've found it to be stable and good for our customers.""The solution is very easy to manage. We found the initial setup, for example, to be quite simple.""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.""I have found the malware protection feature valuable. It is helpful and deliverable and is able to protect my entire organization from getting compromised. It also prevents us from visiting any malicious sites which are not visible to the users.""What we like most is security and how easy it is to integrate with other appliances.""It offers good visibility for the Administrator. The administrator has full visibility of what is blocked or has the knowledge of where users go when they are surfing the internet.""The initial setup is very easy and takes only a few minutes.""I like the original functionality, which allows for providing secure DNS services."

"The security aspect of the solution, particularly the malware behind it, is excellent. That's something that really helped us out. It's not just a simple proxy that just blocks the insights of potential threats that come on behind it. They do malware detection and that helps us a lot.""Technical support is pretty sharp and very responsive.""It was a very easy product to install. It can be deployed very fast."

Cons
"It's a very new product, so it's quite immature at the moment. It can be more user friendly.""They need to improve analytics so they report on more of the specifics of user activity.""In the next release, I would like to see the integration of VDI NSX with Cisco Umbrella.""There are cheaper solutions in the market""Data reporting could be improved.""We would like to see the enhancements made to the EDR, as we see features that are running endpoint management.""I would like to see more integrability with other products.""It could be improved by having a local data center and caching, which can provide protection support. I would like to be able to channel my intel and my network traffic to their clouds, and this feature is not available. Advanced protection or any malware file support, which might be required, is not available."

More Cisco Umbrella Cons »

"File integrity monitoring would be very advantageous as an additional feature.""The dashboards for local use could be better.""The solution could be stronger on the integration side and offer more cloud applications like G Suite or Oracle."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Pricing depends on the automation requirements of the organization.""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.""Cisco Umbrella is expensive and could be cheaper.""The price is quite good.""There is a subscription cost.""The licensing fee is paid on a yearly basis.""The price depends on the use case, and it's a bit linear. But it depends on the customer's strategy and how Cisco plans to optimize the costs.""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."
