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.""The most valuable features of this solution are the Web Filtering and the APT.""We've found it to be stable and good for our customers.""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.""What we like most is security and how easy it is to integrate with other appliances.""Helps block personal email accounts.""The implementation is pretty easy.""The security and access control features."

More Cisco Umbrella Pros →

"Its deployment is very easy and quick. Their technical support is also very good.""In Azure, we have multiple subscriptions and with every subscription, we add some kind of instance ID. We can work with the instance ID so that we allow all of the instances containing nodules. Everything else, we block. This way, if you go to outlook.com and check your email, if you log in with your company account, the instance ID will show. The network will take action according to the instance ID and say, "You are using the enterprise email. I'll let you surf. I'll let you see your email." But when you try to log in with your own email address, like Hotmail or Gmail, the instance ID will be different. This way we are not completely blocking Outlook, but we are blocking people from accessing their Outlook. We are only allowing the enterprise-level emails, and we are not allowing user-based emails.""They are very good at CASB as compared to other players.""The feature that I like best is the GUI.""It has hundreds of features and many of them are useful.""A very straightforward interface.""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.""I have found the most useful features to be the Web Secure Gateway, CASB, infrastructural service scanning, and Zero Trust."

"Their split tunneling feature has been very valuable to our company since implementing the Perimeter 81 solution.""The solution provides us with an easy way to configure and join the VPN with Perimeter 81.""It helps to quickly get access to the pages I need."

Cons
"The price could be better. The price is definitely a bit high, but we have to pay a premium for Cisco products.""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.""The pricing is a bit high. Being outside of the USA, we have issues with the exchange rate.""I would like to see integration with SecurNX in the future.""I would like to see more integrability with other products.""There are cheaper solutions in the market""We would like to see the enhancements made to the EDR, as we see features that are running endpoint management.""Missing a real data leakage prevention solution."

More Cisco Umbrella Cons →

"Compatibility with other proxy polars would be helpful.""In some cases, when you have a lot of policies, it can get confusing for users and you can get lost in the GUI.""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.""There could be better integration with other solutions.""Lacking in local customer support.""They could improve their mobile agents as they have some limitations.""The configuration in the cloud model could be improved upon.""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."

More Netskope CASB Cons →

"In order to have to bypass the login using the website, a good feature for Perimeter 81 to have is a login instance in the Perimeter 81 application. I'm using a Mac and we don't have that functionality.""Currently, I am not able to define a different country or location, which can result in negative experiences as the tool is being recognized by websites and this can make it difficult to access them or force me to disable the program temporarily.""I would suggest adding more networking and security features that allow more customization within their platform."

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."

  • "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."
