DNS-layer security used by hundreds of millions globally
Every day, Cisco Umbrella powers a secure, reliable, and fast internet experience to hundreds of millions of global users. By enforcing security at the DNS layer, Umbrella blocks requests to malicious domains before a connection is even made, effectively stopping threats in their tracks.
Umbrella DNS security resolves pressing issues
Get the tools to address the most pressing cybersecurity issues instantly with the Umbrella DNS Security Advantage package. These issues include:
Stop threats before they hit your network or endpoints
Most companies leave their DNS resolution up to their ISP. However, as more organizations adopt direct-to-internet connections that bypass VPNs, a DNS blind spot is created. With Umbrella DNS security, DNS requests precede the IP connection, enabling the DNS to log requested domains regardless of the port or protocol. Umbrella can then block requests to malware, ransomware, phishing attempts, and botnets before a connection is even established.
Enhanced protection for a remote workforce
Deploy Umbrella and gain a new layer of protection in mere minutes, reduce bandwidth costs and simplify security management. And with the Cisco Umbrella DNS Security Advantage package, you’ll also get access to our enforcement API. This API enables other security services to push updates from their block list to Umbrella. This means you’ll benefit from extended enforcement everywhere, no matter where users are logging in.

On-network deployment: Any network device (e.g. router, DHCP server) can be used to connect to Umbrella. Simply redirect your DNS to Umbrella’s IP address. That’s it. You can also leverage your existing Cisco footprint — Cisco AnyConnect, Cisco routers (ISR 1K and 4K series), Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers, and Meraki MR/MX — to provision thousands of network devices and laptops in minutes.
