  • Positive ROI when the service keeps users from going to malicious websites.
  • We had it deployed while users were internal and external with the AnyConnect Umbrella module so our protection was both on and off the corporate network.
  • Great product. Has paid for itself two time over.

  • Umbrella occasionally keeps users from navigating to very malicious websites.
  • Helps block some fake sites from scraping user credentials.
  • Keeps users from navigating to genres you want to block such as social media or music if you desire to be the internet police.

Return on Investment

  • The amount of times Umbrella has stopped crypto from entering an environment is countless. If crypto manages to get on a desktop, it doesn't let it communicate back with the bad actor server and notifies us in Connect Wise that a computer needs a virus cleaned off.
  • We can look at our antivirus suite and see that maybe a dozen items are blocked in a month. Looking at umbrella, it's literally millions of bad data points being rejected.

Return on Investment

  • 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.

Return on Investment

  • Umbrella adds a significant layer of security at an affordable price.
  • Although affordable, the cost is not insignificant, so it also adds another layer of cost to our security budget.

What is Cisco Umbrella?

Cisco Umbrella, a key component of Cisco's secure access service edge (SASE) architecture, integrates multiple security services in a single, centrally managed, cloud-native solution to secure access to the internet and control cloud app usage. By unifying secure web gateway, firewall, DNS-layer security, threat intelligence, and cloud access security broker (CASB) solutions, Cisco Umbrella helps reduce the resources required for deployment, configuration, and integration. And, by delivering this functionality from the cloud, you can scale to meet the needs of a remote and roaming workforce, shifting network perimeter, and multi-cloud environment — all while simplifying security. Umbrella can be easily integrated with an SD-WAN implementation to provide a combination of performance, security, and flexibility to delight both end users and a security team.
