Limitations of Cisco Umbrella
Cisco Umbrella blocks at the DNS level. This means no custom policies, no SSL inspection, no DNS over HTTPS. It leaves a gaping hole for threats. Want those capabilities? Pay more and upgrade to Cisco Umbrella SIG.
dope.swg’s URL categorization works out of the box. Not to mention the base policy starts blocking the moment you’re onboarded. No paid upgrades required.
Not remote friendly
Cisco Umbrella says they “protect any device, anywhere” but you have to first buy the DNS Security package and then pay for roaming client seats — which just adds more complexity and costs. It’s not efficient.
dope.swg requires no stopovers or roaming clients. Whether you’re on-prem, remote, or traveling you are protected by dope.swg’s patented fly-direct architecture. No stopover data centers, all policy enforcements happens on your device.
Cisco Umbrella inundates you with jumbo add-ons and mega packages, it really complicates the buying experience. DNS Security packages are so limited in their capabilities you have no choice but to pay more for an upgrade.
dope.swg is simple. Everything for web content filtering is included: SSL Inspection, URL Categorization, Cloud App Control, Anti-Malware — no add-ons needed.

HOW Cisco Umbrella WORKS

are stopover data centers really that bad?
Data centers come at a high cost. If there are any outages or degradations around the world, it can have an impact on you. And if your closest data center goes down, your data could be rerouted to a completely different country — slowing you down in the process.
