FAQ Q: How is Umbrella deployed? To deploy Umbrella's DNS-layer security, any network device (e.g. router, DHCP server, etc.) can be used to provision by pointing external DNS to our IP addresses (. You can also use your existing Cisco footprint — SD-WAN (Viptela), Integrated Services Router (ISR) 1K and 4K Series, Meraki MR, and Wireless LAN Controllers — to quickly provision protection across hundreds of routers and access points. Off-network protection is available for laptops that use Windows, macOS, Chrome OS, and supervised Apple devices that run iOS 11.3 or higher. To enable the secure web gateway or cloud-delivered firewall functionality , the following options are available: • For cloud-delivered firewall, you create IPSec tunnels to forward all internet traffic to our platform. • For secure web gateway, you can forward web traffic via: - Proxy chaining - PAC files - IPSec tunnels For detail instructions on deployment, visit: Q: How reliable is Umbrella's global network? Umbrella has a highly resilient network environment that boasts 100% uptime since 2006. Using Anycast routing, any of our 30 plus data centers across the globe are available using the same single IP address, so requests are transparently sent to the nearest, fastest data center and failover is automatic. Umbrella peers with more than 800 of the world's top internet service providers (ISPs), content delivery networks (CDNs) and SaaS platforms to deliver superior speed and user satisfaction. For our secure web gateway and cloud-delivered firewall, we developed an innovative, patent-pending approach to IPSec tunnels. Leveraging Anycast, customer traffic is sent to the data center of their choice and automatically re-routed if the data center, device or path fails. Umbrella eliminates downtime or the need to build backup routes or tunnels. © 2019 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
