Cisco Umbrella is a cloud-based security platform that provides advanced threat protection for organisations. It goes beyond traditional security solutions by offering a comprehensive defence system that safeguards users on and off the network.
Cisco Umbrella leverages the Domain Name System (DNS) to block malicious domains, preventing users from accessing malicious websites or communicating with malicious IP addresses. By analysing and correlating vast amounts of internet activity data, Umbrella can identify and block threats at the DNS and IP layers.
Intelligent Proxy: Umbrella includes an intelligent proxy that inspects and filters web traffic, even for encrypted connections. It applies advanced threat intelligence and analyses behaviour patterns to detect and block malware, phishing attempts, and other malicious activities.
Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) Integration: Cisco Umbrella integrates with Cisco Cloud lock, a CASB solution, to provide enhanced security for cloud applications and services. This integration helps organisations gain visibility into cloud usage, enforce data loss prevention (DLP) policies, and protect against cloud-based threats.
Secure Internet Gateway: As a Secure Internet Gateway (SIG), Cisco Umbrella offers protection to users, regardless of their location or network connection. Whether users are accessing the internet from the office, remote locations, or public Wi-Fi networks, Umbrella ensures their traffic is secured and filtered for potential threats.
Threat Intelligence and Predictive Analytics: Cisco Umbrella incorporates threat intelligence and predictive analytics to proactively identify and block emerging threats in real time. It leverages threat intelligence to continuously monitor and analyse global internet activity and update its security measures accordingly.
Integration and API Support: Cisco Umbrella supports integration with other security solutions through APIs, allowing organisations to extend their protection and share threat intelligence with other security platforms. This integration enhances the overall security posture by enabling comprehensive threat detection and response across multiple security layers.
By deploying Cisco Umbrella, organisations can achieve higher security for their users, devices, and distributed locations. Its cloud-based nature ensures easy deployment and scalability, making it an efficient and effective solution for protecting users everywhere.
