Benefits of Cisco Umbrella for MSPs
Two buying options to fit your needs
Umbrella for MSPs offerings
First line of defense against threats on the internet
Umbrella provides end customers with on- and off-network protection from cyberattacks, such as malware, phishing, and command and control callbacks. By leveraging DNS, Umbrella makes it fast and easy to proactively enforce your policies and gain full visibility into your entire customer base.
No hardware or software installations
Because Umbrella is cloud-delivered, there is no hardware to install or software to maintain.
Multi-tenant console for easy management
Having a true MSP-client hierarchy enables you to keep clients separated and choose whether to manage client settings in bulk or on an individual basis.
Predictive security enforcement
Umbrella learns from internet activity to automatically identify attacker infrastructure staged for current and emergent threats — learning where the threats are coming from, who is launching them, where they are going.
80+ category-based content filters
Manage flexible, location-aware policies with Umbrella’s 80+ content categories and an unlimited number of custom block or allow lists. Laptops can be assigned policies with different internet access restrictions and logging settings based on whether they’re on or off your network.
Roaming and mobile user protection
Enforce protection and policy compliance for laptops that leave the network, so you can enforce security anywhere with no added latency. The roaming client can be deployed in minutes via our RMM scripts for Labtech, Continuum, N-Able, Kaseya, and AVG Level Platforms.
Policy control by user, group, or network
Umbrella enables you to efficiently protect and manage your client organizations in groups instead of just one at a time, which helps you reduce the time spent reacting to malware.
Microsoft Entra ID integration
Identify individual devices for visibility into more granular details. By integrating with your Microsoft Entra ID environment and securely forwarding DNS queries to the Umbrella global network, you can enforce and report on users, computers and groups.
Flexible reporting — standard or custom reports
Reports that shows all your clients together provides you with visibility into Internet activity from networks and roaming laptops. You can see reports across all organizations managed by you MSP instead of one client at a time. Then you have the option to drill down for more detail.
App discovery report
Users are extensively leveraging cloud apps, often without IT involvement or security. This creates a shadow IT challenge. Umbrella gives full visibility into cloud activity and enables you to block unwanted apps to foster secure and organized cloud adoption.
Flexible ways to consume
Cisco Secure MSP easily enables MSPs to sign-up, purchase SaaS security solutions directly using monthly credit card payments and deploy instantly for their customers. No invoicing necessary. Cisco Managed Service License Agreement (MSLA) enables MSPs to have access to a broader portfolio of Cisco solutions and incentives with no up-front commitment. Billing is monthly postpaid, based on consumption.
