Rated 4 out of 5 by from Threats never come close to your network with security at the DNS level​ Primary Use CaseOur primary use case is security at the DNS level. This solutions was suggested by our account manager at Insight.Improvements to My Organizationwe didn't implement it in our environment because of the pricing concern. however, I am sure it would have done a great job considering my observations in the trail pack.Valuable FeaturesThreats never come close to your network with security at the DNS level. Like i said above, i used it for a very short time so I cannot comment on the what would've been valuable for us but I was pretty amazed by the wide variety of security features and reports on a single dashboard. Leveraging Custom API and reasons and visibility for each deep visibility for the network was something that caught my eye.Room for ImprovementThere should be a way to monitor traffic at the user level. I use Meraki Dashboard ( /products/meraki-dashboard-reviews ) and Cisco Firepower to do this for different networks. I understand this tool monitors the network as a whole but adding that information will let us cut the cost for other tools.Use of SolutionLess than one year.Previous SolutionsPricing, License Cost and SetupThe product is pricey compared to Cisco Firepower.Other Solutions ConsideredOther AdviceIt is a pretty good product for a small business.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reports provide insight into internet usage and information helpful in creating QoS rules Primary Use CaseProtection and security provided by using Umbrella are the two top areas that I looked at when considering. With three campuses, Umbrella has proven itself with the detection and blocking of malware, viruses, and preventing users from visiting malicious sites. We have two Umbrella virtual appliances at each campus, with two campuses using Hyper-V ( /products/hyper-v-reviews ), and the primary data center running VMware.Improvements to My OrganizationThe reports have given us insight into what the Internet is being used for at all three campuses. They provide insight into internet usage and information helpful in creating QoS rules.Valuable Features* My favorite feature is the command and control callback blocking. It provides protection from crypto attacks by blocking the connection back to the attacker's server giving an added layer of defense.* Policies make the work easier by providing appropriate filters for locations.* The interface is simple, easy to navigate and set up.Room for ImprovementIf the virtual appliances could also gather traffic bandwidth reports, that would be great.Use of SolutionOne to three years.Customer Service and Technical SupportThe customer support is exceptional.They have a wealth of articles in their knowledge base. This has given me the freedom to troubleshoot on my own time.Other AdviceCisco Umbrella ( /products/cisco-umbrella-reviews )'s interface is easy to use and the visibility of user activity is extremely useful.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It enables a whitelist-only browsing mode, which helps us monitor traffic and perform web content filtering. Valuable Features:We needed the product to enable a whitelist-only browsing mode for certain computers for a client. After that was implemented, I was able to configure a virtual appliance (which became the DNS server) to connect to a local AD server and relate traffic to an AD user name. From there, we could track and monitor where users were going and perform web content filtering ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/categories/web-content-filtering ) to prevent video streaming and certain social media sites. This in turn positively affected productivity.I don’t remember the specific examples of data I was trying to filter out but it was related to ads being hosted by a CDN ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/categories/cdn ) such as Akamai. Links and images were being hosted there for quicker localized delivery yet the users were not actually going to those sites. Due to that it was showing that those sites were being visited the most, which wasn’t the case.Improvements to My Organization:There was a positive effect on productivity because we could track and confront the users that were frequently using social media or streaming video during the work day. They weren’t wasting as much time after OpenDNS ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/opendns ) was implemented.It gave us new capabilities and made users accountable for their browsing while at work.Room for Improvement:I would like to have the ability to prevent certain sites/data from showing on the reports. I have had this feature request open for a couple of years. It would be useful to have for filtering out unuseful data.Use of Solution:I have been using this solution for the past two years. I previously used the free solution 6-8 years ago.Deployment Issues:I did not encounter any issues with deployment, stability or scalability. I had a Sales Engineer assist with the setup for one portion, but was able to figure out the rest with no issues.Scalability Issues:NoCustomer Service:ExcellentTechnical Support:Excellent, their Sales Engineer was very helping in getting the AD sync setup.Previous Solutions:NoInitial Setup:Initial setup was straightforward. Any questions I had were already answered on the forums.Implementation Team:A vendor team was only needed for one small portion, which was setting up the virtual appliance. I would recommend trying to figure out the setting on your own first before reaching out to support. I found it very simple.ROI:We were able to resell the service for a 100-200% profit.Other Solutions Considered:Due to past experience, I knew it would do what we needed and the website has an intuitive interface, so there was no reason to research alternatives.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:I use OpenDNS under an MSP Partner agreement.
