Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The solution is very easy to manage. We found the initial setup, for example, to be quite simple.""The most valuable feature for us is the DNS-based protection.""The solution is extremely stable. It has excellent performance.""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.""We've found it to be stable and good for our customers.""Stability-wise, it's good. I have never encountered any bugs.""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.""We like Cisco Umbrella because of DNS security. It's one step ahead of whatever we are using for regular web filtering. In that way, it's more secure than other web filtering products."

"I have found the web content filtering and malware filter the most valuable.""One of the main features I have found the solution to be efficient.""Forcepoint Secure Web Gateway has improved our organization through its ease of use.""The antiviral sandboxing.""The spam filter is very effective.""The critical role is web URL filtering.""For the most part, the solution, when set up correctly, works fine.""Once deployed, the management console is simple and easy to use."

"The most valuable feature is machine learning, which automatically monitors the activity on the machine.""The security of Trend Micro Web Security is good."

Cons
"The pricing is a bit high. Being outside of the USA, we have issues with the exchange rate.""The product can be pretty expensive.""We would like to see the enhancements made to the EDR, as we see features that are running endpoint management.""They need to improve analytics so they report on more of the specifics of user activity.""This solution does not give us full, 360-degree protection.""Missing a real data leakage prevention solution.""In the next release, I would like to see the integration of VDI NSX with Cisco Umbrella.""I would like to see more integrability with other products."

More Cisco Umbrella Cons »

"Overall the software is occupying too much memory space. If they could remedy that, it would be a better experience, because today Windows is occupying too much memory space as well (in terms of the RAM), and this software has also started occupying all the memory. Due to this, I have less space for my other office products and data. I can't, for example, operate a huge Excel sheet or other datasets.""I have been in contact with technical support several times, and I am not happy with them.""It's the support that's the problem because that's a different question from the product itself — it's the Achilles heel.""But the deployment could be easier. It might take from one day to three days. Usually, that involves an engineer from the vendor and a working team at the enterprise.""Sometimes attacks or a new ransomware gets through.""A feature we wish to see addressed in the next release of Forcepoint Secure Web Gateway involves its administration.""In the on-premises version, I don't like the deployment and structuring of the device.""The deployment is a bit complex and it requires expertise to deploy, which is something that should be improved and made easier to do."

More Forcepoint Secure Web Gateway Cons »

"I would like to see better scalability and better performance.""The system should generate reports when an attack has been stopped, contained, or removed."

More Trend Micro Web Security Cons »

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The price could be lower.""Cisco uses subscription models for the pricing and there are three subscription plans.""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.""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.""Pricing depends on the automation requirements of the organization.""The price is quite good.""Cisco Umbrella is expensive and could be cheaper.""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 solution is priced a little high compare to similar solutions.""Licensing is flexible. License pricing information is based on the customer, their environment, and on the future approach.""The licensing is not expensive.""The price of this product should be reduced to make it more competitive.""Overall, I am not aware of the option to pay for one time use of Forcepoint Secure Web Gateway.""The price of this solution is reasonable."

More Forcepoint Secure Web Gateway Pricing and Cost Advice »

"I don't remember the exact pricing, but I think that it is approximately $10.00 per user."
