    Cisco Umbrella provides another layer of protection on top of firewalls and antivirus. Cisco Umbrella makes whitelisting, blacklisting, and categorical web filtering easier through the use of a single admin portal. Updates to these lists are populated almost instantly to all of your local and remote devices. Cisco Umbrella may be overkill for smaller businesses that do not have a distributed workforce.

    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

    Jeff Collins | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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.

    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.
    Randy Zuehlke | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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

    Our network team mostly works with Cisco support but from what I understand, they were pretty helpful because we're an enterprise company. We use a few other Cisco products, so we do get a pretty good response from Cisco customer support. I'm not a fan of Cisco's SSO because we can't put it behind Okta but that's beyond the scope of this.

    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.

    Alternatives Considered

    Cisco Umbrella

    We used a product before this called iPrism by EdgeWave and also briefly tried Barracuda Web Security in the cloud. We were having such a large influx of service desk calls about proxy-based layer 7 web filters that we wanted to step back and pick something more at the DNS level, to protect our employees but not hover over their social media use, etc. Cisco will also employ a layer 7 proxy if a site is suspicious, which does require us to push a certificate out should we want that feature. For most policies we have it enabled.

    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

    • On the positive side, the product does help block known bad sites, resulting in less time that technicians spend cleaning infections.
    • On the negative side, the problem that causes Windows to incorrectly report no Internet access has taken a lot of time for many technicians.
    • Reporting features for individual clients help us more efficiently provide browsing reports when needed.

    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.
