    It seems that they concentrate on their kernal business purpose: a recursive DNS service primarily for residential networks.  Protection for roaming devices is associated with some form of VPN anyway, and they may not want to compete with these many other VPN services in the world.

    So yes, they still got a huge amount of market chances.  My company relies on their Umbrella services for the protection of our worldwide LANs.  My company operates its own VPN network where roaming devices connect to and are then protected by Umbrella.

    You, who are looking for protecting your roaming devices, you're maybe better off with using a dedicated service for such a scenario.

    Thanks @rotbitz. Umbrella offering from OpenDNS is more or less a dead product now. 1 funny thing I have noticed is I have my PC configured with Umbrella client and my PC is in my home network where I also have Open DNS configured to protect. I have kept Umbrella more restrictive. However, Open DNS takes precedence. I know this is how it is is when I switched Open DNS to be more restrictive the PC followed it but not vice versa.

    Hardly, it's for the purpose I lined out.

    "However, Open DNS takes precedence."

    Well, whatever dashboard network you register your IP address with, only this will take effect.  It seems you have registered your IP address with an OpenDNS network, not with an Umbrella network.  You cannot use both at the same time.  Your thinking is wrong.
