Easily enforce content web filtering
Using over 85 category-based content filters, you can use Umbrella to effectively block domains that contain unwanted content and create customized add/block lists. Gain full control over which sites can be accessed by users and easily enforce and comply with acceptable use policies.
Umbrella’s highly resilient cloud infrastructure has been operating at 100% uptime since 2006. Using Anycast routing, our 32 plus data centers across the globe are available using the same single IP address, so your requests are transparently sent to the nearest, fastest data center and failover is automatic. Umbrella peers with more than 1000 of the world’s top ISPs, CDNs, and SaaS platforms to deliver superior speed and user satisfaction.
Seamless Meraki deployment
Cisco Umbrella deploys instantly across a Cisco Meraki wi-fi network. Keep users protected by blocking suspicious or harmful domains associated with phishing, malware, ransomware, C2 callbacks, and more, with no added latency.
Put an end to security gaps
Here are three ways Cisco Umbrella can close the security gaps within your organization:
Most companies leave DNS resolution to their ISP, but this can lead to a DNS blind spot when more and more users connect directly to the internet and bypass the VPN. By monitoring DNS requests, Umbrella can easily detect compromised systems and increase security visibility.
Proactive threat detection
Leveraging threat intelligence from Cisco Talos, Umbrella proactively identifies and blocks requests to risky domains, IP addresses, URLs, and files that are being used in attacks. This allows you to effectively protect critical infrastructure without delay or performance impact.
As a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, Cisco Umbrella is simple to implement and manage. It offers multiple APIs to make integration a breeze. What’s more, it stops threats at the earliest possible point, reducing the number of infections and alerts you need to remediate.
DNS Security Essentials: The Cisco Umbrella Advantage
Umbrella processes more than 620 billion requests for more than 20,000 businesses every day. Powered by the intelligence of Cisco Talos, the world’s largest non-governmental threat intelligence network, Umbrella delivers unmatched visibility into DNS activity worldwide.
By leveraging Cisco Umbrella API’s organizations can easily generate their integration and orchestration workflows. Our rich collection of APIs allow customers to maximize the value of their Umbrella investment by integrating our market leading threat intelligence with other intelligence sources to enhance security posture.
On-network deployment: Any network device (e.g. router, DHCP server) can be used to connect to Umbrella. Simply redirect your DNS to Umbrella’s IP address. That’s it. You can also leverage your existing Cisco footprint — Cisco AnyConnect, Cisco routers (ISR 1K and 4K series), Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers, and Meraki MR/MX — to provision thousands of network devices and laptops in minutes.
Off-network deployment: Cisco Umbrella protects Windows, MacOS, iOS, Chrome OS, and Android devices outside the network security perimeter — without sacrificing performance.
