This is a relatively new offering from Cisco and some time is needed for the evolutionary development of the platform. It's good that there are some third party integrations available and it would be a positive step to see more offered. I also would like to see a full managed service provider addition to the platform. I would like to see a managed security service provider console just like there is for Cisco Umbrella and Cisco Secure Endpoint.

They have released a lot lately that has continued to give us more insight into what's going on. But if they could make the Cisco Umbrella piece a little bit more advanced or easier to manage, that would help. We use it for filtering and when you compare it to a normal content filter, it lacks some functionality. It's something that we've adapted and continue to use. We see the value that it brings to us.

The automation process with SecureX could be simpler. When we started to use it that was not the easiest part for us. Sometimes it's a little slow so that is also something Cisco should check. They should also work on the reporting.

The automation and orchestration could be simpler. It could be that all the other parts are that easy to use so that these stick out as a negative, but that's the trickiest part for us. The workflows within the orchestration are just a bit more difficult. What would be really helpful is some sort of library from which you could pull out prefabricated actions. The tools are there to build your own, but it would be nice if there were a library saying, "If you have this and you want to do this, there's some prebuilt stuff here which you can tailor to your own environment." Right now, it's mostly a blank canvas saying, "Take whatever input you want and program your own response."
