Cisco Umbrella



Cisco Umbrella is a cloud-native platform that delivers the most secure, reliable, and fastest internet experience to more than 100 million users daily. Umbrella unifies firewall, secure web gateway, DNS-layer security, cloud access security broker (CASB), and threat intelligence solutions into a single platform to help businesses of all sizes secure their network. As more organizations embrace direct internet access, Umbrella makes it easy to extend protection to roaming users and branch offices.

Built into the foundation of the internet, Umbrella processes 180 billion internet requests for more than 18,500 businesses every day. By enforcing security at the DNS and IP layers, Umbrella blocks requests to malware, ransomware, phishing, and botnets before a connection is even established — before they reach your network or endpoints. The cloud-delivered secure web gateway logs and inspects all web traffic for greater transparency, control, and protection. The cloud-delivered firewall helps to log and block traffic using IP, port, and protocol rules for consistent enforcement throughout your environment.
