Data sheet Cisco Umbrella Stop threats before they reach your network or endpoints Cisco Umbrella: DNS Security Advantage Package Work anywhere, secure everywhere. The leader in DNS-layer security Cisco Umbrella delivers the most secure, reliable, and fastest internet experience to more than 100 million users. As a leading provider of network security and recursive DNS services, we enable the world to connect to the internet with confidence on any device. Umbrella resolves your most pressing challenges Block malware without latency Umbrella is a cloud-native platform 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 Advanced Malware Protection (AMP). 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 all of your users enterprise-wide in minutes, and reduces the number of infections and alerts you see from other security products by stopping threats at the earliest point. Win no hardware to install and no software to manually update, ongoing management is simple. 1. https://www.techvalidate.com/product-research/cisco-umbrella/facts/324-36C-800 2. https://www.techvalidate.com/product-research/cisco-umbrella/facts/AF2-8E2-79D 3. https://www.techvalidate.com/product-research/cisco-umbrella/charts/F83-DB9-434 Malware and ransomware Gaps in visibility and coverage Cloud apps and shadow IT Difficult to manage security
