We use Cisco Umbrella for a secure web gateway. It keeps our users safe and secure and helps us remediate threats quickly and stay virus free. Our end-users are protected from going to any type of malicious site, whether they are in-house or if they're remote and working from home.
Umbrella protects the outgoing data of our company and has excellent reporting features. We have good insights on any issues related to outgoing data, like whether there were any phishing or dangerous sites connected.
Umbrella's single pane of glass management is great. From that single pane, you can view what is happening security-wise, such as what was being blocked. You can also check for your roaming users.
One of my favorite features is to be able to enter a website url and get an overall summary of how safe that website is. This lets us look further into that site and investigate the risk score that Umbrella decided. We can just analyze these websites and ensure that we are blocking harmful sites and unblocking safe sites.
I would say that Cisco Umbrella’s top benefits are:
Stability: It is robust and high performing.
Scalability: The solution is cloud based and scales easily.
Easy deployment: We quickly set it up for thousands of users without having to physically touch all the endpoints.
Lightweight: Although it is always running in the background, it doesn’t use a high amount of resources.
The only thing I can think of that I would like to improve would be to have a bit more flexibility in policy creation.
Cisco Umbrella is a comprehensive and very secure solution. It functions very efficiently and effectively - I definitely recommend it.
