Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Umbrella

We are using Cisco Umbrella globally for the whole organization and divide policies by departments. It protects our office and remote (roaming) computers against malicious domains. For manufacturing sites, we have a policy to restrict internet access (use allow-only policy). We are trying to use all features of the Cisco Umbrella and connect ThreatGrid and ThreatResponse.
  • Protect against Malicious Domains
  • Protect against Newly Seen Domains
  • Decrypt traffic
  • No Cisco-Managed Destination Lists of "Big players" like Microsoft, SalesForce, Amazon
  • Reduce the threat landscape by protecting on DNS-layer
We use Roaming Security Module for Cisco AnyConnect. The integration is really straightforward and can apply user-based and group-based policies for endpoints outside the firewall, roaming users, and remote branch offices.
We have integrated Cisco Umbrella with Cisco AMP Threat Grid and Cisco Threat Response. Send logs to the SIEM.
We had no much interaction with support because Umbrella has a very good deployment guide.
I believe, Cisco Umbrella is the best option on market.
Cisco Umbrella is perfectly protecting our users against malicious domains or inappropriate categories of websites like P2P network, Adult Content, Newly Seen domains. The great feature of Cisco Umbrella is the support of Roaming Clients--protect our users anywhere, at the office and at home. Allow-only mode is a nice feature as well to use zero-trust methodology.
