Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""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.""What we like most is security and how easy it is to integrate with other appliances.""The most valuable features of this solution are the Web Filtering and the APT.""The solution is extremely stable. It has excellent performance.""Web proxy adds an effective layer for security.""The initial setup is very easy and takes only a few minutes.""Cisco Umbrella is a totally different solution. They are the first to come up with this idea of security. It's a totally new concept of security for everybody, for every time, real time, perfectionism."

"The automation offered by the product is pretty solid.""It's a comprehensive security portfolio solution.""I have found the most useful features to be the Web Secure Gateway, CASB, infrastructural service scanning, and Zero Trust.""A very straightforward interface.""The feature that I like best is the GUI.""It has hundreds of features and many of them are useful.""Their technical support is very good.""The client size and architectural components in Netskope are far better than other solutions."

Cons
"If the security issues are taken care of it would be better.""It's a very new product, so it's quite immature at the moment. It can be more user friendly.""The integration with Cisco could be better.""Looking at the full umbrella suite in the light of SASE, Secure Access Service Edge, they are clearly lacking in the inline CASB.""In the future, they should combine some of the Cisco AMP features that they already have, for anti-malware purposes.""The pricing is a bit high. Being outside of the USA, we have issues with the exchange rate.""It should have a real-time malware classification engine. It should check the malware on the website. It would be good if it had a real-time malware check for the websites because currently, it just compares the DNS queries of the blacklist. It should also have malware control over file execution and the types of files that the users are allowed to download.""There are cheaper solutions in the market"

More Cisco Umbrella Cons »

"There could be better integration with other solutions.""It should have user behavior analysis and diverse analysis.""They can focus more on ease of admin, ease of use, and ease of migration. Migration should be simple for companies that are using a different platform and would like to move to Netskope. Everyone looks for a simple migration. They can also focus more on cloud services and cloud trends. They have to see the cloud market, and they should try to compete with Zscaler and other players. They should also work on licensing costs.""Compatibility with other proxy polars would be helpful.""The initial setup is complex and should be simplified.""Lacking in local customer support.""They could improve their mobile agents as they have some limitations.""The solution is still pretty new to the CASB environment."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The licensing part for Umbrella is really flexible.""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 could be lower.""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.""Cisco uses subscription models for the pricing and there are three subscription plans.""When talking about Cisco solutions in general there pricing model is horrible. For example, you can sell a Meraki-based solution, but if the customer starts shopping around, someone is going to have access to the pricing at a level that you cannot compete because they do not have uniform pricing. Not everybody gets fair pricing. Unless you are one of the real major corporations selling the solution your ability to compete is impossible. Cisco will acknowledge the situation and assure you next time it will be in your favor but it never becomes favorable for you. Cisco is not very good in this regard. However, Umbrella is good.""There is a subscription cost."

More Cisco Umbrella Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The pricing is competitive.""The price of the solution is fair but it depends on your use case.""Licensing is on a yearly basis.""There is a license required for this solution and there are many licensing models available. For example, what applications are covered as part of the license.""They should work on licensing costs."
