The best way to safety with umbrella

Reviewed 7 months 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.

Good URL - application filter for the money

Reviewed 5 months 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

Cisco Umbrella - great web security gateway & Internet security tool

Reviewed 7 months ago

Umbrella is great at providing visibility and security into our remote endpoints.

Pros

Very easy to manage and set up, great application support. Protects security for our remote endpoints.

Cons

Data leak prevention system is missing or inadequate. Reporting is too basic and generic.

The best dns security on the market

Reviewed 5 months ago
Pros

A lot. We though we were blocking the most dangerous urls with our web filtering, but this is something else. You can see a lot of dns requests being blocked that the user is not even aware of. Also blocking newly seen domains as standard is a nice feature

Cons

There are still quite a few false positives, for example an auto discover request for what I presume is office365
