Pros
And not only that, but also the traffic and DNS services are of very good quality.
My particular opinion is that it is a great tool from cisco since it is very intuitive. Also, Cisco adds a layer of DNS-based protection against malware, which is very useful.
What I like the most about this device is its stability because it protects against malware and phishing in real time, and its stability in the cloud.
Cons
Data leak prevention system is missing or inadequate. Reporting is too basic and generic.
Takes some time to set it up and could give you problems with other apps you have.
The timeout settings were annoying, but we figured out how to work around them.

The best way to safety with umbrella

Reviewed 2 years ago

For us, the particular use of this tool has been one of the best that we have been able to implement since it is very easy to use as well as providing us with an excellent security layer, although many similar products can be obtained, we had the opportunity to use cisco umbrella, which allowed us to improve gradually.

Pros

What we like the most about this tool are the web filters that it has since that option can be applied to different categories, in addition to that it has the option to block specific web pages. And not only that, but also the traffic and DNS services are of very good quality.

Cons

To be totally honest with the use we have had with this tool, we feel very happy during all this time that we have been using it. We have not found any errors in the product.

Quality Cloud Protection

Reviewed a year ago

My particular opinion is that it is a great tool from cisco since it is very intuitive. Also, Cisco adds a layer of DNS-based protection against malware, which is very useful.

Pros

What I like the most about this device is its stability because it protects against malware and phishing in real time, and its stability in the cloud. organization. Besides the fact that the client interface is very intuitive.

Cons

Having used this kit myself, I have not found a single fault as it is very easy to set up. Also, apart from the fact that we only have to configure what and how we want to protect and add PCs, we are quite comfortable with this product.

Good URL - application filter for the money

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall we're happy that we get what we pay for. We would love for the administration (copy policies, etc) to be improved and wish the reporting were better.

Pros

It's reasonably priced, offers critical DNS level protection, does an ok job at filtering web applications, fast/easy deployment

Cons

Reporting is not good, user forms for reporting issues do not convey enough/correct information to the administrators, cannot copy one policy to a new one
