MSSPs lead the charge The same trends that accelerate business — high SaaS application use, extensive numbers of roaming workers, expanding remote locations — magnify cybersecurity risk. Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) are at the forefront of tackling that risk, as end customers turn to them for cybersecurity solutions and expertise. MSSPs seek security capabilities that serve diverse customer needs, scale to accommodate market and customer base fluctuations, and evolve with continuous enhancements. To minimize operational costs, solutions must fit seamlessly into the MSSP's existing portfolio. And without exception, solutions must provide extraordinary security efficacy. The leader in DNS-layer security Cisco Umbrella for MSSPs establishes the first line of defense against threats on the internet. Umbrella is a cloud-delivered service that provides end customers on-and off-network protection from cyberattacks, such as malware, phishing, ransomware, and command and control callbacks. By analyzing and learning from internet activity patterns, Umbrella uncovers attackers' infrastructures staged attacks, both current and emerging. This enables Umbrella to proactively block requests to malicious destinations before they reach your customers' network or endpoints — without added latency. Stop phishing and malware infections earlier, identify already infected devices faster, and prevent data exfiltration more effectively. Built for MSSPs As a cloud-delivered service with no hardware to install or software to manually update, Umbrella reduces MSSP complexity. The MSSP has access to the tools necessary to manage Umbrella including logging and reports, Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) log management, and a variety of APIs. With minimal investment and fast time-to-market, Umbrella helps MSSPs to contain overhead cost and improve profit margins while sharpening brand differentiation. It can be deployed in minutes and is simple to manage, enabling the MSSP business to grow without straining security teams. Subscription licensing via term and pay-as-you-go (Managed Service License Agreement/MSLA) billing models are available.
