Cisco Umbrella managed services delivers the most secure, reliable, and fastest internet experience to more than 100 million business and consumer users daily. As a leading provider of network security and recursive DNS security we enable the world to connect to the internet with confidence on any device. We’ve built a reputation on easy deployment and powerful protection anywhere users access the internet.
Visibility and protection everywhere
As a cloud-delivered service, Umbrella provides the visibility needed to protect internet access across all network devices, office locations, and roaming users. All internet activity is logged and categorized by the type of security threat or web content, and the action taken — whether it was blocked or allowed. Logs of all activity can be retained as long as needed and recalled easily for investigation. You can even uncover cloud apps and Internet of Things (IoT) devices in use across your company.
Block malware without latency
Umbrella is a cloud-delivered security service built into the foundation of the internet. It enforces security at the DNS layer and blocks requests to malicious domains before a connection is even established — stopping threats over any port or protocol before they reach your network or endpoints.
Easily enforce content web filtering
With Umbrella, you can effectively manage your user’s internet access using over 85+ category-based content filters. It’s simple to create custom allow/block lists, and block domains with unwanted content. Umbrella gives you control over which sites can be accessed by your users so you can easily enforce and comply with acceptable use policies.
Umbrella has a highly resilient cloud infrastructure that boasts 100% uptime since 2006. Using Anycast routing, our 32 plus data centers across the globe are available using the same single IP address, so your requests are transparently sent to the nearest, fastest data center and failover is automatic. Umbrella peers with more than 1000 of the world’s top internet service providers (ISPs), content delivery networks (CDNs) and SaaS platforms to deliver superior speed and user satisfaction.
