Pros
"Some clients only want DNS security, while others want more of the advanced features that it has available.""The implementation is pretty easy.""What we like most is security and how easy it is to integrate with other appliances.""Helps block personal email accounts.""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.""The weekly reportings are great. The investigation is super and the application management is equally great.""The most valuable features of this solution are the Web Filtering and the APT.""Cisco Umbrella is a totally different solution. They are the first to come up with this idea of security. It's a totally new concept of security for everybody, for every time, real time, perfectionism."

Cons
"In the next release, I would like to see the integration of VDI NSX with Cisco Umbrella.""Actually, we recently switched over to Zscaler because it has more features and it's more scalable than Cisco Umbrella.""It should have a real-time malware classification engine. It should check the malware on the website. It would be good if it had a real-time malware check for the websites because currently, it just compares the DNS queries of the blacklist. It should also have malware control over file execution and the types of files that the users are allowed to download.""Data reporting could be improved.""Cisco Umbrella should introduce an on-premises device.""I would like to see integration with SecurNX in the future.""This solution does not give us full, 360-degree protection.""User interface could be a little smoother and more intuitive."

More Cisco Umbrella Cons →

"There needs to be more capabilities in order to configure the console itself instead of the user interface dashboard. Configuring the DNS or DHCP through the console instead of the GUI dashboard would be better.""There should be better alerts for when attacks are happening."

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."
  • "Cisco uses subscription models for the pricing and there are three subscription plans."
  • "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."
