We currently use Cisco Umbrella as our first line of defense against threats from the internet. It is currently being used across the organization and addresses many problems around current and emerging threats and protects us against the phishing, malware, and ransomware.
  • Protects the organizations from phishing, malware and ransomware attempts. It does a really good job at it.
  • Very easy to implement.
  • The GUI couldn't be easier.
  • API's available for integration into other products.
  • The products ability to have visibility into internet activity across all devices regardless of whether they are off the corporate network or not is a huge plus for us.
  • Support is not always fast enough to address any issues. Also, different tiers of support including ones where you have to purchase a higher tiered plan for phone support.
  • Takes a little time to configure the product to avoid interference with other web filtering products.
  • A lot of room for improvement in reporting.
As the first line of defense against threats from the internet, it does a great job protecting us from current and emerging threats, protects us against the phishing, malware, and ransomware. The product itself is easy to deploy and use. It gives great visibility into devices that are on/off the network which is a great plus. It is suited for any organization that has users/devices that are not necessarily joined to the domain or off the corporate network.

Used within remote offices, offsetting the smart filtering into the cloud instead of on-premise. Good hybrid approach with Cisco AMP. Protects from malicious call-backs and real time web-filtering that is policy based.
  • real time, uses global sensors and data analytical engines (ML/AI)
  • provides great visibility into outbound traffic and protects DNS based communications
  • very easy integration and deployment
  • false positives can be improved (VoIP traffic is getting reported and trapped).
  • the reporting could be more advanced and needs to support many formats (PDF/XML/etc.)
Well suited for organizations with other Cisco products (FirePower/AMP/IPS/etc). Integration with Cisco AnyConnect is a great feature. File monitoring feature just got released that can be utilized via policies.

We use Cisco Umbrella as an additional layer of security for all of our clients. It really shines for mobile users who we still want to be restricted to our web content policies. I don't know if a situation where Umbrella wouldn't be appropriate, unless you just don't use the internet.

OpenDNS Umbrella Web Filtering is well suited for all environments, but in our particular case it is very useful. Our environment is a hybrid setup with some on premise and some cloud. We also have multiple remote locations as well as remote agents that require access to our internal network. This allows us to control what users can browse, even when remote.
