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.

Panda Security for Desktops

Panda is easy to use and doesn't take a ton of system resources, and is easy to implement. It is effective when tested or compared to other products. It doesn't burden the user with excessive notifications. Simple as it should be. Clients have been happy with its performance and haven't had reports of performance issues. This is a must as a system that cripples the machine is of significantly less value

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

Panda Security for Desktops

  • Constant scanning of the entire computer.
  • Does not affect the performance of the device.
  • A lot of features to protect the computers in different layers.
  • A control panel where you can manage all the features in a simple way.
  • High level of effectiveness when detecting threats, attacks, malware, etc.

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.

Panda Security for Desktops

  • Panda Security is not the best at some types of malware scans but that can be an issue with other similar products as well.
  • The configuration and setup functions could be more detailed and expanded for advanced users.
  • Updates can sometimes be infrequent.

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.

I gave it a 10 because I compare it to air conditioning. I need it to work every day, 24/7. I need it to be reliable and not something that requires a ton of interaction from staff to make sure it works every day. In addition, I should be able to run other things at my house when the AC is on. Panda fits that description.

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

Panda Security for Desktops

Over the years we have tried different software to provide protection but we have not managed to obtain the best results because their features have not been updated or do not fully support against very advanced attacks. One example is Avira, which is limited in that it is practically only useful for Windows, while Panda is usually available for different devices as well as is more prepared for any type of attack that we can cross today.

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.

Panda Security for Desktops

  • It has helped me on multiple occasions to eliminate infections from my PC. I have avoided having to reinstall the operating system or format my system and lose some important files.
