Put an end to security gaps
Here are three ways Cisco Umbrella can close the security gaps within your organization:
DNS Security Essentials: The Cisco Umbrella advantage
Umbrella processes more than 250 billion requests for more than 20,000 businesses every day. Powered by the intelligence of Cisco Talos, the world’s largest non-governmental threat intelligence network, Umbrella delivers unmatched visibility into DNS activity worldwide.
Umbrella offers APIs for network devices, management and reporting. With the Essentials package, you also have access to our enforcement API which enables integration with other security services to push blocked domains to Umbrella for extended enforcement everywhere.
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.
Off-network deployment: We protect Windows, MacOS, iOS, Chrome OS, and Android devices outside the network security perimeter — without sacrificing performance.
