Cisco Umbrella.

Cisco Umbrella provides the first line of defence against threats on the internet. It’s the easiest way to protect all of your users in minutes.

Cisco Umbrella protects your organisation beyond your firewall.

Cisco Umbrella will protect your users even when working outside the corporate firewall. Whilst remote they are vulnerable to malwareransomware and other attacks whilst you have little visibility and protection.

With Cisco Umbrella, Unifi provides the first line of defence against threats on the internet wherever your users go. You have complete visibility into internet activity across all locations, devices and users. Threats are blocked before they ever reach your network or endpoints. As a cloud-delivered, open platform, Cisco Umbrella integrates easily with your existing security stack and delivers live threat intelligence about current and emerging threats.

Cisco Umbrella automatically blocks attacks.

Automatically uncover attacker infrastructure and proactively blocks requests to malicious destinations before a connection is even established. All without adding any latency for users.

Stop phishing and malware infections earlier, identify already infected devices faster, and prevent data exfiltration. Enforcement built into the foundation of the internet The Domain Name System (DNS) is a foundational component of the internet — mapping domain names to IP addresses. When you click a link or type a URL, a DNS request initiates the process of connecting any device to the internet. Umbrella uses DNS as one of the main mechanisms to get traffic to our cloud platform and then uses it to enforce security too.

When Umbrella receives a DNS request, it uses intelligence to determine if the request is safe, malicious or risky — meaning the domain contains both malicious and legitimate content. Safe and malicious requests are routed as usual or blocked, respectively. Risky requests are routed to our cloud-based proxy for deeper inspection. The Umbrella proxy uses Cisco Talos web reputation and other third-party feeds to determine if a URL is malicious. Our proxy also inspects files attempted to be downloaded from those risky sites using anti-virus (AV) engines and Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP). And, based on the outcome of this inspection, the connection is allowed or blocked.

Intelligence to stop attacks before they launch.

The Umbrella global network, which is the network that our recursive DNS service is built on, resolves billions of internet requests from millions of users around the world every day. We analyse this massive amount of data to detect patterns and uncover attacker infrastructure.

Enterprise-wide deployment in minutes.

Umbrella is the fastest and easiest way to protect all of your users in minutes. Because it is delivered from the cloud, there is no hardware to install or software to manually update. You can provision all on-network devices — including BYOD and IoT — in minutes and use your existing Cisco footprint—AnyConnect, SD-WAN, Integrated Services Router (ISR) 1K and 4K Series, and Wireless LAN Controller 5520 and 8540, and Meraki MR — to quickly provision thousands of network egresses and roaming laptops. Additionally, with the Cisco Security Connector app, you can use the Umbrella extension to protect supervised iOS 11. 3 or higher devices.

Let's work together.
