AV-TEST Places Cisco Umbrella first in security efficacy – again!
In 2020 AV-TEST evaluated Cisco Umbrella’s secure web gateway (enhanced with DNS security) and DNS-layer protection functionality. Umbrella crushed the competition with a 96.39% total detection rate and a significantly lower false positive rate than other products. And, while we don’t like to brag, this data is too good to keep quiet, especially since this is the second year in a row that AV-TEST has found that Umbrella outperforms competitive offerings.
“We have seen a huge number of blocked requests to malicious sites (~40k / day) with Umbrella. We have a small security team and Umbrella has allowed us to be much more effective and focus our efforts.”

“Before we used the Investigate API for our incident response process, it might have taken our incident responders many hours, or even days, to respond to an incident. Now we’ve automated much of that process, so we can get it down to a very quick and efficient few minutes.”
Head of Security, Yelp
