Simple, effective cloud-delivered security
Exploding SaaS usage. Proliferating remote locations. Swelling ranks of roaming workers. It’s the new normal. It challenges how organizations work and how they secure users, devices and remote locations. How can a cloud security service, featuring a cloud-delivered firewall, help you reduce complexity and improve your security?
Umbrella’s cloud-delivered firewall
Organizations are embracing direct internet access (DIA) instead of backhauling traffic to the data center. Today organizations seek a cloud-native security service as a simple-to-manage and scalable alternative to costly refresh cycles and maintenance headaches. Firewall in the cloud is now an essential element of a cloud-delivered security service. It helps you to improve security efficacy, and ensure consistent enforcement everywhere.
Intelligent traffic routing in the cloud
Security is not one size fits all. Cisco Umbrella intelligently steers different traffic types to the appropriate function to achieve an ideal balance of security efficacy, user performance, and management simplicity. Outbound traffic is sent to Umbrella via a single IPSec tunnel where the secure web gateway secures web traffic, DNS-layer security inspects and blocks DNS requests, and the cloud-delivered firewall secures non-web /non-DNS traffic.
Deepen inspection and control without performance issues
Get better visibility and control for outbound internet traffic across all ports and protocols (Layer 3 / 4 firewall) without performance degradation. Log all activity and block unwanted traffic using IP, port, and protocol rules easily.
Forward traffic to the cloud-delivered firewall by simply configuring an IPSec tunnel from any network device. As new tunnels are created, automatically apply security policies for easy setup, consistent enforcement, and protection against malware infections, phishing attacks, unacceptable use, and more.
Increase operational efficiency, performance, and redundancy
Say goodbye to complexity and hello to increased operational efficiency, with unified policy management reporting, and automatic redundancy.
Umbrella’s innovative use of Anycast routing enables the Umbrella infrastructure to execute planned updates, additions, and removals — even taking down an entire data center — with minimal impact to users at no extra cost. In the rare instance of an unplanned interruption, it performs automatic data center failover with no loss of redundancy protection.
Umbrella combines multiple security capabilities in a single, cloud-native service to offer powerful security that is easy to deploy and manage — all backed by the power of Cisco Talos threat intelligence.
You can quickly deploy Umbrella across thousands of devices with a few simple clicks. Your users will be protected against threats like malware, ransomware, and botnets with no added latency.
Only Umbrella optimizes inspection to automatically send traffic to specialized services for industry-leading security efficacy.
