Why choose Umbrella for your business?

Cisco Umbrella

Rise in risky cyberthreats

As threats become more sophisticated, the cost to detect and block them increases. But attackers often reuse infrastructure in multiple attacks — leaving cyber fingerprints. What if you could use those fingerprints to uncover attacks before they launch?

Cisco Umbrella

Branch offices, remote users

Your users work from many locations and devices. What if you had a fast, easy way to protect remote and roaming workers, secure direct internet access at branch offices, and control the use of cloud-based apps without the need for another appliance?

Security blind spots

Your goal is to keep the bad stuff out and the good stuff in. Chasing security alerts from different tools wastes time and money. What if you had access to better intelligence and integrated security that exposes blind spots while being simple to manage?

Integrated security from the cloud

Cisco Umbrella delivers the most secure, reliable, and fastest internet experience to more than 100 million users every day. Umbrella starts with a fast, secure DNS service, ie your safe address book on the internet. It can also, if you choose, be expanded to offer additional services such as cloud delivered firewall, secure web gateway, and cloud access security brother (CASB), all from the web interface you will already be familiar with. As more organisations embrace direct internet access, Umbrella makes it easy to extend protection to remote users and branch offices.


Better intelligence drives better security

Umbrella leverages insights from Cisco Talos, one of the world’s largest commercial threat intelligence teams. It uncovers and blocks a broad spectrum of malicious domains, IPs, URLs, and files that are being used in attacks. Cisco also feeds huge volumes of global internet activity into a combination of statistical and machine learning models to identify new attacks being staged on the internet. All of this means that by using Umbrella your business will operate more safely.


Block malware easily

Built into the foundation of the internet, Umbrella processes 200 billion internet requests (DNS) for more than 20,000 businesses every day. It works in three ways:

  1. By enforcing security at the DNS and IP layers, Umbrella blocks requests to malware, ransomware, phishing, and botnets before a connection is even established — before they reach your network or endpoints. Many businesses use the DNS service alone with great results to protect their company.
  2. The secure web gateway adds additional features by logging and inspecting all web traffic for greater transparency, control, and protection.
  3. The cloud-delivered firewall helps to log and block traffic using IP, port, and protocol rules for consistent enforcement throughout your environment.

Speed up and improve incident response

With minimal set-up effort Umbrella will protect your business from day one. Many businesses set their policy to schedule automatic reports and let Umbrella do its job.

Other businesses take a more active role by utilising the information Umbrella can provide through its simple to use Web Interface. With Cisco SecureX (included with all Umbrella subscriptions) you can accelerate threat investigation and remediation by unifying Umbrella’s threat intelligence with other Cisco Security products and your other security infrastructure. Automated response actions simplify security by eliminating manual tasks and stopping attacks earlier in the process.
