Cisco Umbrella

Umbrella is another factor in a layered security approach.  This essentially is a more robust firewall which is remotely managed for each device.  This provides additional security to the device it is running on by protecting the DNS requests, IP network, port configuration and more.

  • DNS layer security: Umbrella’s DNS-layer security provides the fastest, easiest way to improve your security. It helps improve security visibility, detect compromised systems, and protect your users on and off the network by stopping threats over any port or protocol before they reach your network or endpoints.
  • Secure web gateway logs and inspects web traffic for full visibility, URL and application controls, and protection against malware. Use IPsec tunnels, PAC files, or proxy chaining to forward traffic to our cloud-based proxy to enforce acceptable use policies and block advanced threats.
  • Firewall logs all activity and blocks unwanted traffic using IP, port, and protocol rules. To forward traffic, simply configure an IPsec tunnel from any network device. As new tunnels are created, policies are automatically applied for easy setup and consistent enforcement everywhere.
  • Cloud access security broker exposes shadow IT by providing the ability to detect and report on cloud applications in use across your organization. For discovered apps, view details on the risk level and block or control usage to better manage cloud adoption and reduce risk.
  • Interactive threat intelligence provies unprecedented insight into malicious domains, IPs, and URLs. Available via a console and API, Umbrella Investigate provides real-time context on malware, phishing, botnets, trojans and other threats enabling faster incident investigation and response.
