We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It analyzes the domain security helps us implement the securest policy.""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.""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 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.""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 other products that I have evaluated do not have the scalability options that McAfee has.""I found the solution to be stable.""The product has a very high rating from reviewers. It's a well-respected product.""In terms of their compatibility with major cloud providers, in terms of their abilities, capabilities, and features, they exceed everyone's capabilities in the CASB market.""It's an easy-to-use product.""Overall, the performance is good.""The support is excellent."

More McAfee MVISION Cloud Pros →

"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.""The interface is good.""Technical support is pretty good.""The client size and architectural components in Netskope are far better than other solutions.""A very straightforward interface.""It has hundreds of features and many of them are useful.""The automation offered by the product is pretty solid.""They are very good at CASB as compared to other players."

Cons
"It could be more secure. It would be better if they provided a transferring proxy as an add-on and more integration.""In the next release, I would like to see the integration of VDI NSX with Cisco Umbrella.""It should have more integrations with multiple end user OEMs.""In the future, they should combine some of the Cisco AMP features that they already have, for anti-malware purposes.""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.""The product can be pretty expensive.""It could be improved by having a local data center and caching, which can provide protection support. I would like to be able to channel my intel and my network traffic to their clouds, and this feature is not available. Advanced protection or any malware file support, which might be required, is not available.""It has happened in the past that Cisco Umbrella has denied us access to secure websites."

More Cisco Umbrella Cons →

"It needs to be more user-friendly, as it is a little bit complicated to use.""One thing that can be improved is their ability to integrate with other web proxies to discover unsanctioned IP apps.""There isn't really any aspect that is lacking.""The pricing of the solution could be adjusted to make it more reasonable.""McAfee needs to add more products that could be managed from the cloud.""The solution is hard to configure, our team does not have specific training requirements for McAfee making it difficult."

More McAfee MVISION Cloud Cons →

"The initial setup is complex and should be simplified.""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.""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.""There should be some granular custom roles that are not available. However, this is on the road map. There are many devices that do not have the Zero Trust feature and other enhancements available which they should have.""Compatibility with other proxy polars would be helpful.""Support services could definitely be improved. Support is the one area that can always use improvement. It's an evolving thing, so based on demand and based on market requirement and the way market is moving towards.""The solution is still pretty new to the CASB environment."
