Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"I haven't found any issues related to latency or any other issue.""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.""I think recently with many people working from home, Cisco Umbrella has been very useful. For example, we can manage the device and the network when the employee is not working on the local host. Cisco Umbrella is very valuable for this kind of infrastructure.""Provides dependable DNS monitoring of external devices.""Web proxy adds an effective layer for security.""Stability-wise, it's good. I have never encountered any bugs.""The implementation is pretty easy.""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."

"The solution offers very good self-authentication. It has a lot of protocols and ways to authenticate users by ID, or by Active Directory Integration. It's able to take credentials from the Active Directory Domain Controllers.""The web content filter is the most valuable feature."

Cons
"The product can be pretty expensive.""User interface could be a little smoother and more intuitive.""I would like to see integration with SecurNX in the future.""I think it's a very basic solution, and because of that, Cisco Umbrella would not be a suitable solution for large companies.""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.""The pricing is a bit high. Being outside of the USA, we have issues with the exchange rate.""One of the issues with Umbrella is as you get into endpoint detection and response, such as EDR point solutions, some of them will not integrate well with Umbrella. Sometimes when you want to use technology, such as Always On VPN, it will not work. There are some looming issues as one type of technology starts to crossover with Umbrella. That is the challenge and Umbrella should find a way to be more compatible with some of the endpoint response solutions that are coming out on the market.""Cisco Umbrella should introduce an on-premises device."

More Cisco Umbrella Cons »

"There are some small bugs in the real-time login environment. There is a real-time login and you can see which URLs are blocked or allowed for every user. They should make sure this is resolved in future releases.""The Oauth1 protocol has a lot of issues with authentication and it made it very difficult to initially authenticate with the API."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""I think it's worth the money.""There are three models for licensing with different feature sets.""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.""Pricing depends on the automation requirements of the organization.""There is a subscription cost.""The licensing part for Umbrella is really flexible.""Cisco uses subscription models for the pricing and there are three subscription plans."
