"The most valuable features of this solution are the Web Filtering and the APT."
"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."
"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."
"Provides dependable DNS monitoring of external devices."
"The security and access control features."
"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."
"The initial setup is very easy and takes only a few minutes."
"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 is the seamless integration across different clouds."
"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."
"If your business requirements are relatively simple, it can get the job done."
"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."
"Threat detection is its key feature, and that's why we use this tool. It gives an alert if a PC is attacked or there is any kind of anomaly, such as there is a spike in sending emails or we see an unauthorized website being accessed. So, it keeps us on our toes. We get to know that there is something wrong, and we can isolate the user and find any issues with it. So, threat detection is very robust in this tool."
"All of the features are valuable because all of the features are related."
"It is very easy to use, which is what we look for in these types of solutions."
"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."
"Technical support is pretty good."
"Netskope is a really good product. I cannot segregate which features are the most valuable. We find most of the features to be valuable. It gives us what we are looking for."
"Its deployment is very easy and quick. Their technical support is also very good."
"Their technical support is very good."
"The feature that I like best is the GUI."
"It has hundreds of features and many of them are useful."
"The automation offered by the product is pretty solid."
"I have found the most useful features to be the Web Secure Gateway, CASB, infrastructural service scanning, and Zero Trust."
"Actually, we recently switched over to Zscaler because it has more features and it's more scalable than Cisco Umbrella."
"I would like them to make some videos, practical videos, the kind with steps that people can use to learn and deploy"
"Looking at the full umbrella suite in the light of SASE, Secure Access Service Edge, they are clearly lacking in the inline CASB."
"User interface could be a little smoother and more intuitive."
"There are cheaper solutions in the market"
"They need to improve analytics so they report on more of the specifics of user activity."
"We would like to see the enhancements made to the EDR, as we see features that are running endpoint management."
"I would like to see more integration between Cisco Umbrella and Cisco DNA Center."
"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."
"In the future, I would like to see more plug-and-play capabilities that use AI to tell you what needs to be done. It would be helpful if it scanned our devices and made security suggestions, on a configuration basis."
"I would like for it to be available on Mac and for it to support all of the features of Microsoft financing products. It is really for Windows."
"The integration with macOS operating systems needs to be better."
"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."
"The response time could be better. It will be helpful if the alerts are even more proactive and we can see more data. Currently, the data is a little bit weak. It is not complete. I can't just see it and completely know which user or which device it is. It takes some effort and time on my part to investigate and isolate a user. It would be great if it is more user-friendly or easy for people to understand."
"There are challenges with detection and there are challenges with false-positive rates."
"Third party integration with other cloud applications could be improved. Sometimes the API won't be working, but Netskope is taking it seriously. They accept all the feature requests, and they are trying to provide whatever we ask from them."
"In some cases, when you have a lot of policies, it can get confusing for users and you can get lost in the GUI."
"They can focus more on ease of admin, ease of use, and ease of migration. Migration should be simple for companies that are using a different platform and would like to move to Netskope. Everyone looks for a simple migration. They can also focus more on cloud services and cloud trends. They have to see the cloud market, and they should try to compete with Zscaler and other players. They should also work on licensing costs."
"The solution is still pretty new to the CASB environment."
"They could improve their mobile agents as they have some limitations."
"It should have user behavior analysis and diverse analysis."
"Lacking in local customer support."
"Setting up policies is something that we having been doing, and if the vendor were to provide example use cases that included different implementation options then it would be very useful for us."
