Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Cisco Umbrella is such a solution and can be implemented very fast and easy. All that we must do is redirect the DNS registers in their routers, or the active directory service of the enterprise that are going to use in Umbrella services. If you buy the service now, in two hours you are protected by the service because it's very fast to put in service.""The security and access control features.""The implementation is pretty easy.""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 most valuable feature for us is the DNS-based protection.""I like the original functionality, which allows for providing secure DNS services.""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.""Cisco Umbrella is absolutely stable."

"One of the main features I have found the solution to be efficient.""The antiviral sandboxing.""The spam filter is very effective.""For the most part, the solution, when set up correctly, works fine.""In terms of performance, Forcepoint stands out because it is more scalable than any other solution. It can extend to different types of boxes and integrate well with other platforms and vendors. And it doesn't need to have the same kind of box or throughput to have high availability.""The critical role is web URL filtering.""I have found the web content filtering and malware filter the most valuable.""The feature that I find to be most valuable is the flexibility of the single endpoint."

"Infoblox offers granularity and advanced DNS protection to mitigate DNS attacks. It's a very secure solution.""The security of the solution is perfect. It's very good at protecting us from attacks.""DHCP is a basic service, and they've been doing it for years, so it's mature and stable."

Cons
"The product can be pretty expensive.""Missing a real data leakage prevention solution.""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.""The reporting could be improved by way of the information that's displayed. For example, when you pull a report, it shows an internal employee going to many websites, but you can spin that right down by saying a lot of it is being cached.""It could be more secure. It would be better if they provided a transferring proxy as an add-on and more integration.""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 should be more hardware models available and the application control could improve.""It's the support that's the problem because that's a different question from the product itself — it's the Achilles heel.""The solution should be better able to support itself and operate faster. Sometimes the technical support team takes too long to respond.""Stability needs some improvement, we have on occasion experienced some delay when it is synchronized.""We are using a V10000 G3 appliance. It is just a proxy. It is just HTTP, FTP, and HTTPS. Now, as our website has developed and we are using rich time-connectivity protocols, the proxy doesn't have the ability to work with these protocols. It would be nice if the UDP feature was there for it to filter UDP traffic. It needs firewall capabilities for UDP filtering. Its upgrades can be quite complex, and they don't always go as per the plan. Its reporting could be a bit more granular.""The deployment is a bit complex and it requires expertise to deploy, which is something that should be improved and made easier to do.""I have been in contact with technical support several times, and I am not happy with them.""Sometimes attacks or a new ransomware gets through."

"There needs to be more capabilities in order to configure the console itself instead of the user interface dashboard. Configuring the DNS or DHCP through the console instead of the GUI dashboard would be better.""The solution is expensive.""There should be better alerts for when attacks are happening."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The licensing part for Umbrella is really flexible.""There are three models for licensing with different feature sets.""Pricing depends on the automation requirements of the organization.""The price could be lower.""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.""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.""The price of Cisco Umbrella is a little higher than similar solutions, like Gateway.""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."

More Cisco Umbrella Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The price of this product should be reduced to make it more competitive.""The price of this solution is reasonable.""The solution is priced a little high compare to similar solutions.""Overall, I am not aware of the option to pay for one time use of Forcepoint Secure Web Gateway.""The licensing is not expensive.""Licensing is flexible. License pricing information is based on the customer, their environment, and on the future approach."
