The power of linking data between orgs Unlike appliances, cloud services are multi-tenant and have the concept of orgs. Configuration and reporting data can be kept separate per org, or it can be centralized and linked together. Your team can link policy settings, such as security, between the Multi-Org Console and one, multiple, all, and even future separate orgs. Change a "centralized setting" once and it's instantly applied to every linked policy. Local admins can apply local settings to their orgs' policies, but don't fear — you'll immediately see which orgs are using local settings and it's easy to revert the change. The simplicity of managing orgs vs. roles Most cloud services, including Umbrella, offer role-based access controls (RBACs) to partition configuration and reporting data within a single org. Then, use delegated administration to assign roles to admins. This approach works fine for a few partitions with few access controls. But when there are numerous orgs, managing roles becomes very complex in the long run. Policy configuration and reporting access mistakes often happen when data changes (e.g. new end-users, new settings, new reports) but RBACs do not. The best of both worlds The Multi-Org Console for Umbrella eliminates both complex version-controlled configurations and delegated administration. • Similar to using boxes, configuration and reporting data is fully partitioned, accessible, and customizable by local (per-org) admins. • Similar to using other services, your team gains simple control of default configurations plus full visibility of locally-customized configurations. • Immediately learn which orgs have the most security or status events requiring your team's attention. Common use case • The FBI emails you a list of malicious domains used by a new targeted attack. • You add the domains to a centralized block list in the Multi-Org Console, which by default, is a setting linked to all orgs' policies. • This single change is instantly applied to tens or hundreds of separate orgs.
