Cisco Umbrella

Your First Line of Defence Against Internet Threats

Cisco Umbrella provides flexible, cloud-delivered security that consolidates multiple functions into a single solution. With Umbrella, you can easily extend data protection to devices, remote users and distributed locations.

What is Cisco Umbrella?

Cisco Umbrella is a cloud-based security platform that offers comprehensive protection against internet threats. As a leading secure web gateway and DNS filtering service, Umbrella enables organisations to control and secure their internet access. Cisco Umbrella utilises threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to proactively identifies and blocks malicious domains, IPs, URLs and files, safeguarding users from accessing harmful websites or downloading malware.

The comprehensive networking and security capabilities of Cisco Umbrella also make it a critical component in any Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) architecture. In addition to DNS-layer security and interactive threat intelligence, Cisco Umbrella also features secure web gateway functionality, cloud-delivered firewall and cloud access security broker (CASB) services, all delivered from a single cloud platform. Cisco Umbrella also seamlessly integrates with Cisco Meraki SD-WAN products as part of the Cisco+ Secure Connect solution.

Cisco Umbrella Features and Benefits

DNS Layer Security

Cisco Umbrella’s DNS security leverages its global network infrastructure and threat intelligence to provide advanced protection against malicious domains, IPs and URLs.
