Likelihood to Recommend

Cisco Umbrella

I think Cisco Umbrella is well suited for almost all organizations. It works so well that both a small business and a large business can use it without issues. Technically it can even be used by devices that don't support the client installer, so it can basically be used anywhere by anyone. The only downside to Cisco Umbrella is that it doesn't fully support Terminal Servers, in that it won't do user-based filtering, which can be a deal-breaker.

Netwrix Data Security Platform

Netwrix Auditor is well suited to perform audit data collection on many types of servers that require audit data to be collected. It runs fairly quickly and usually informs you if something went wrong in the data collection. They do need to have better documentation and some form of internal documentation to help the users who understand what is happening in their system to help them through the process of figuring out when something went wrong.

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

Netwrix Data Security Platform

  • Netwrix Auditor sends out warnings to users when their passwords are close to expiring. This saves us some headache, because if they have any problems with changing their password, we can help them before they get locked out.
  • The notifications for multiple failed logons is a lifesaver. Very useful for spotting suspicious activity!
  • I love the way that you can create your own custom notifications and reports through the "Search" function. You can pick the "What", "Where", and "When" for the event you want to monitor and set up email email reports for them.

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.

Netwrix Data Security Platform

  • They have a screen capture function that I have never been able to get to work properly. However, I have never called their support on this issue so it is not necessarily a big ding against them. I am only mildly interested in this feature. We have enough network monitoring so I already know what my users are doing I don't need a capture.

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.

We have renewed already the licensing of the product minus SQL Server and Oracle Database because the organisation believes the modules are very expensive and have identified a different product for auditing DatabasesOther modules are very important like the User Activity monitor, AD queries that we can not get from the native AD itself or you have to run complicated powershell scripts!Easy to use interfacePre-defined ReportsEasy way to subscribe to important alerts e.g Privilege account group membership changes

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

The product has user friend pre-defined queries which takes off the stress and horrors of having to query Active Directory with complex Powershell scripts!You can subscribe to certain functions when they are done and you get an alert e.g privileged accounts actions and you don't need to have programming skillsThe product has a desktop version of the software and donot have to login to the server all the time you need to use it.You can see very fast the posture of your environment of the overview screen and deduce what exactly is wrong and what has to be done

We have been Cisco fans for quite some time. This product / support team lives up to expectations and the high degree of service we have come to expect from them. Whenever we had any sort of question / issue (which there were not many, as this was fairly seamless to integrate) they were responsive and helpful towards finding a solution

Customer support has always been fast and helpful when we run into any issues. The smaller issues are usually resolved within a day or two. It is great support and I feel like I am in good hands anytime an issue comes up. However, we don't run into many issues

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Umbrella

At the time that we purchased Cisco Umbrella, then OpenDNS, we did not evaluate other products. Since then, several competing products have been released. I intend to evaluate these in the future, as we have not been happy overall with Cisco Umbrella. The unexpected side effects and poor support have been very frustrating.

Netwrix Data Security Platform

I tried a demo of a competing software, whose name escapes me, and was completely lost. I didn't know how to find anything or how to use it if I did. Their support documentation didn't help very much either. That's why I appreciated the guidance Netwrix provides on usage and value of their product.

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.
Todd Swartzman | TrustRadius Reviewer

Netwrix Data Security Platform

  • Positive: Greater confidence from management to the engineering team as pro-active monitoring is taking place.
  • Positive: Engineers have a tool that can look into logs across the fleet of servers/network devices.
  • Negative: Can be quite time consuming to set up/ train to be competent in the software.
