"The most valuable features of this solution are the Web Filtering and the APT."
"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."
"Cisco Umbrella is absolutely stable."
"The solution is extremely stable. It has excellent performance."
"It analyzes the domain security helps us implement the securest policy."
"The most valuable feature is the website protection capabilities because it prevents end-users from entering bad sites that potentially have malware or could be used for phishing."
"It's very stable, reliable and does its job."
"I like that it integrates with the infrastructure. I also like the kind of data and intelligence that's built-in. It helps create innovative reports for security."
"The security aspect of the solution, particularly the malware behind it, is excellent. That's something that really helped us out. It's not just a simple proxy that just blocks the insights of potential threats that come on behind it. They do malware detection and that helps us a lot."
"It was a very easy product to install. It can be deployed very fast."
"Technical support is pretty sharp and very responsive."
"We have become more aware of what services our users are using, how often they are using them, and what data is being sent out of the organization and to which services. So, it is really a lot about visibility and helping us make decisions based on that. It drives some of our policy decisions for adding extra security controls."
"The ability to prevent users from using certain applications is one of the most valuable features. It doesn't require any configuration for implementation from the client perspective. It just works right away and gives you the information you need."
"Better logging allows us to find problems and take appropriate steps to lock them out."
"The feature that helps us in detecting the sensitive information being shared has been very useful. In addition, the feature that allows MCAS to apply policies with SharePoint, Teams, and OneDrive is being used predominantly."
"There are a lot of features with benefits, including discovery, investigation, and putting controls around things. You can't say that you like the investigation part but not the discovery. Everything is correlated; that's how the tool works."
"If your business requirements are relatively simple, it can get the job done."
"All of the features are valuable because all of the features are related."
"The most valuable feature is the seamless integration across different clouds."
"It should have more integrations with multiple end user OEMs."
"They need to improve analytics so they report on more of the specifics of user activity."
"It could be more secure. It would be better if they provided a transferring proxy as an add-on and more integration."
"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."
"There are cheaper solutions in the market"
"Looking at the full umbrella suite in the light of SASE, Secure Access Service Edge, they are clearly lacking in the inline CASB."
"I would like to see more integrability with other products."
"Cisco Umbrella should introduce an on-premises device."
"The dashboards for local use could be better."
"File integrity monitoring would be very advantageous as an additional feature."
"The solution could be stronger on the integration side and offer more cloud applications like G Suite or Oracle."
"There are challenges with detection and there are challenges with false-positive rates."
"It takes some time to scan and apply the policies when there is some sensitive information. After it applies the policies, it works, but there is a delay. This is something for which we are working with Microsoft."
"The integration with macOS operating systems needs to be better."
"Currently, reporting is not very straightforward and it needs to be enhanced. Specific reports are not included and you need to run a query, drill down, and then export it and share it. I would love to have reports with more fine-tuning or granularity, and more predefined reports."
"They should continue integration with all other Microsoft security-related products. The integration with all the other products is still ongoing."
"The interface needs to be more user-friendly."
"This service would be better if it had a separate license, only for this service, that could be used to track usage."
"Sometimes the support is actually lacking."
