Overview Cisco Public Cisco Umbrella Education Packages Secure students and staff, everywhere. With the increased use of cloud-based applications in education at every level, there is a rising level of concern about appropriate and safe online experiences. A new level of control and compliance is required to protect educational users including administrators, teachers and students as well as parents and other visitors. One key challenge for educational institutions is to simplify the overall process of deploying and managing solutions that provide internet access, appropriate use and threat protection with a limited amount of IT resources. In the evolving threat landscape, managing security has become more challenging than ever in education. Cisco Umbrella can secure internet activities for all educational users while providing valuable visibility and control for administrators. By enforcing security at the DNS level, 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. Umbrella secure web gateway (full proxy) capabilities extend the level of control and protection for all web activity down to the URL level. It even decrypts and inspects the rapidly increasing amount of encrypted internet traffic. Umbrella offers two packages designed exclusively for K-12 schools and higher education institutions. Cisco Umbrella DNS for EDU offers domain level security, threat detection, and app visibility/control to block malware, easily enforce content web filtering and enable secure cloud adoption. With Umbrella Secure Internet Gateway (SIG) for EDU, you get all of the benefits of DNS layer security plus access to Umbrella's cloud-based secure web gateway (SWG), which provides full visibility and control (at the URL level) into web traffic to improve security and help meet deeper compliance requirements. The full proxy capability gives you the ability to log and inspect all of your web traffic for greater transparency, enforce URL-based filtering, and a more granular level of control. The SIG for EDU package combines the visibility, control, protection, and reporting capabilities needed by any size educational institution and it delivers all of this functionality in a single, cloud-native solution. You can streamline your environment and reduce costs while simplifying IT management and reducing the risk for your end users.
