Feature brief Cisco Umbrella Challenges With the majority of attacks originating from the internet, you need to protect your users' web traffic wherever they are, from headquarters to branch offices, to roaming laptops. All web traffic must be logged to maintain compliance and enable investigations. At the same time, you have to protect users from malware and enforce acceptable use policies to maintain a healthy work environment and protect sensitive data. All of this must be done without hurting user performance or adding undue complexity to network and security infrastructure. As the number of branch offices and remote users increases, the concept of placing a proxy appliance at every location becomes impractical because of the cost and expertise required for deployment and maintenance. A viable solution must provide the visibility, control and protection required without impeding performance or end user satisfaction. Overview Cisco Umbrella secure web gateway functionality is a cloud-native service that can proxy all of your web traffic for a greater level of visibility and control. It enables you to log all usage, protect against viruses and malware, enforce acceptable use policies, and simplify investigations. These full proxy capabilities are part of Umbrella's SIG Essentials package which also includes DNS Security a cloud-delivered firewall, CASB functionality, and Umbrella's Investigate threat intelligence data to provide a robust, secure internet gateway.
