Case Study Cisco Public Results Stopping threats before they get through the door By efficiently logging, inspecting, and controlling web traffic—as well as blocking risky applications and user behavior—Frederick Health can better mitigate compliance and privacy risks. Prior to having Umbrella, Frederick Health's security team received two to three legitimate malware alerts every day. "After we deployed Umbrella, we noticed a dramatic reduction in alerts on our other security solutions—by 50% or more," the senior network engineer notes. "Ever since we implemented Umbrella, threats aren't getting through anymore." Not only is Cisco Umbrella stopping threats before they enter the environment, but the reduction in alerts from antivirus and intrusion prevention tools filters out the noise, freeing up the team's time to focus on more sophisticated threats. "If you think about securing your house from a burglar, you want to stop them before they even enter your home. Most of the other competing secure web gateways would let threats get into the network and then fight them inside, but Umbrella stops the threats before they even get in, and that's a big difference," he says. "You can't ask for anything better than that." Cisco gives Frederick Health much more than confidence in security and the ability to protect remote users and meet HIPAA compliance requirements. "It's not just about improving security. It's also about giving people in our community the confidence to trust us with the information they're giving us, especially with all the prevalent ransomware and everything that's happening in the world today," the senior network engineer says. "The fact we've been using Umbrella and nothing has happened so far has given our community peace of mind and the confidence to come back to our facility for their healthcare needs." " "After we deployed Umbrella, we noticed a dramatic reduction in alerts—by 50% or more. Ever since we implemented Umbrella, threats aren't getting through anymore."
