Overview Cisco Public Stop threats before they reach your network or endpoints Block malware without latency Umbrella is a cloud security service built into the foundation of the internet. By enforcing security at the DNS and IP layers, Umbrella blocks requests to malware, ransomware, phishing, and botnets before a connection is even established — stopping threats over any port or protocol before they reach your network or endpoints. With our selective proxy, it offers deeper inspection of URLs and files for risky domains using antivirus engines and Cisco Secure Endpoint. Umbrella even blocks direct IP connections from command and control callbacks for roaming users. Improve visibility Most companies leave their DNS resolution up to their ISP. But as more organizations adopt direct internet connections and users bypass the VPN, this leads to a DNS-blind spot. DNS requests precede the IP connection, which enables DNS resolvers to log requested domains regardless of the connection's protocol or port. Monitoring DNS requests, as well as subsequent IP connections is an easy way to provide better accuracy and detection of compromised systems, improving security visibility and network protection. Manage and control cloud apps Umbrella provides visibility into sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud services in use across the enterprise, so you can uncover new services being used, see who is using them, identify potential risk, and block specific applications easily. Simplify security management Umbrella is the fastest and easiest way to protect users across your organization in minutes, and reduces the number of infections and alerts you see from other security products by stopping threats at the earliest point. With no hardware to install and no software to manually update, ongoing management is simple.
