Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Provides dependable DNS monitoring of external devices.""What we like most is security and how easy it is to integrate with other appliances.""Overall, it is a very good solution. It is a simple solution and very easy to set up.""I haven't found any issues related to latency or any other issue.""The solution is very easy to manage. We found the initial setup, for example, to be quite simple.""We've found it to be stable and good for our customers.""The implementation is pretty easy.""The solution is extremely stable. It has excellent performance."

"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 integration with Cisco could be better.""I think it's a very basic solution, and because of that, Cisco Umbrella would not be a suitable solution for large companies.""It could be more secure. It would be better if they provided a transferring proxy as an add-on and more integration.""I would like to see integration with SecurNX in the future.""Looking at the full umbrella suite in the light of SASE, Secure Access Service Edge, they are clearly lacking in the inline CASB.""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.""User interface could be a little smoother and more intuitive.""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."

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
  • "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."
  • "Cisco uses subscription models for the pricing and there are three subscription plans."
  • "The licensing part for Umbrella is really flexible."
  • "There are three models for licensing with different feature sets."
  • "I think it's worth the money."
  • "The price of Cisco Umbrella is a little higher than similar solutions, like Gateway."
  • "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."
  • "There is a subscription cost."

  • "The cost could be lower, though it is not currently prohibitive for larger companies."
