Cisco Umbrella

Cisco Umbrella is most appropriate in organizations that do not require much support and Office 365 is not used. The level of support provided is lackluster. The roaming agent often causes Windows systems to incorrectly report that the machine does not have Internet access. This causes Office 365 apps to no work, resulting in a lot of wasted time trying to correct the error. The product was top-notch several years ago, but I would hesitate to recommend it now.

F-Secure Business Suite

  • Very stable and cost-effective.
  • Better integration with leading database vendors would be great; this would address features that are missing like x-windows support and concurrent secure file transfers.
  • Patching is relatively fast and not as frequent as other vendors (with no impact on adherence to security best practices).
  • Very easy to install and low storage footprint.

Pros

Cisco Umbrella

  • Filters content at the DNS level. Makes it a little harder for the sneaky ones to make it through.
  • Since this is at the DNS level, using their DNS servers (as a forwarder to your local DNS) it is extremely fast. Transparent.
  • Always being updated. Not dependent on "definitions" or algorithms - a site is either blacklisted or whitelisted.
  • Easy to implement, apply, maintain

F-Secure Business Suite

  • Most up to date secure/encryption technology.
  • Very fast to set up and maintain.
  • Supported by all major hardware platforms (Microsoft, Linux).

Cons

Cisco Umbrella

  • Keeping up to date on known malicious sites and blocking those is difficult for all vendors, but this could always be improved upon.
  • A more detailed descriptions of what is included the Security Categories would be useful. Generic descriptions are provided. For example, state lottery sites could be detailed in the description of the Gambling category.

F-Secure Business Suite

  • X-windows support could be more robust.
  • Virtual shell adaptation could be improved.
  • Greater concurrency for large secure transmissions would be a great add-on.

It is a great product. It is easy to manage and is affordable. We are a Cisco shop, so it is easily integrated with our other security suite of products to include Threat Response and SecureX.

The product was easy to install and get running. To maintain the product is also a simple matter of maintaining lists of wanted and unwanted domains or URLs. The basic and advanced security features all do what they are intended to do with no known erroneous outcomes

We have not yet had to contact Customer Support on any issues yet. Our organization did take the class in order to learn how to administer the product so it gave us a good understanding of what the product is and how to use it. The community site has been easy to use and allows for us to find many of the answers that we need.

  • Support organization is active, so is online community boards.
  • There have been no significant issues that haven't been able to be quickly addressed by either online documentation or F-Secure support.
  • Easy to use diagnostic tools and information gathering, make problem analysis fast.
  • Phone support can be different due to time zone differences, but this has not been a major issue.

Overall, the implementation was smooth with little issues. Testing some of the advanced features and ensuring they did not impact our user population was the greatest challenge

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Umbrella

For our use there was no real option or reason for us not to go with Cisco Umbrella. Our other security products were from Cisco, so it just made sense. We did look at the other products to make sure there was not any features missing that we required and there were not

F-Secure Business Suite

  • This suite of software does not have any mentionable competition, in my opinion.
  • It adheres to current security protocols, in-frequent patching requirements, low IT overhead, and on-going support are exemplary.
  • Robust documentation and online community boards help keep support and maintenance transparent and efficient.
  • Legacy support for older OS' is quite useful.
  • Simplicity when onboarding into custom hybrid network configurations is also vital.

Return on Investment

Cisco Umbrella

  • Saved us lots of technician time dealing w/ Malware and virus issues, I don't think we've had a malware incident this year for example. This was the main reason we bought the product in the first place. We've renewed 2 times because we see the value.
  • Umbrella helped us reduce the risk of CryptoLocker variants infecting our clients.

F-Secure Business Suite

  • Very low cost.
  • Low IT overhead (very low network bandwidth, CPU, storage utilization).
  • Supported by all major hardware vendors.
