We are excited to announce that OpenDNS enterprise security products have been rebranded to Cisco Umbrella! It has always been our mission to provide powerful security solutions that are easy to deploy and simple to manage. We have continued to deliver on this mission since our acquisition by Cisco in 2015, and OpenDNS has become the foundation of our overall cloud security strategy at Cisco. Why the change? While our security offers are built on a foundation of DNS, most of you know they are much, much more than that. We believe we provide the most advanced cloud-delivered security solution in the market, and we want a name that reflects that. The name “Cisco Umbrella” encompasses and better captures our broader set of cloud-delivered security capabilities.
Below please find the name changes, a brief FAQ and a few links to important resources:
|Formerly||Effective November 2016|
|OpenDNS Umbrella||Cisco Umbrella|
|OpenDNS Investigate||Cisco Umbrella Investigate|
|OpenDNS Umbrella for MSPs||Cisco Umbrella for MSPs|
Note: The OpenDNS brand will remain for the consumer products (free and paid home offerings).
As you probably know, OpenDNS was acquired by Cisco in August 2015. Over the past year, we have become an integral part of the overall Cisco cloud security vision. We have a lot of exciting things ahead! For now, we just wanted to let you know about the brand change. You’ll still be able to use the same great products you know and love — just with a small name change.
Effective November 14, 2016, when you log into the Umbrella or Investigate dashboard, you’ll notice the logo at the top has changed from “OpenDNS” to “Cisco Umbrella.” The change will happen seamlessly on the backend. The Umbrella dashboard will also be moving to a new domain to reflect the brand — dashboard.umbrella.com.
Additionally, you’ll find a new navigation in the user interface. For the past few months, we’ve been testing this new navigation with customers and hope you find it makes your experience even more enjoyable!
Aside from the branding and new navigation, there won’t be any other major product changes on November 14th. We’re always busy working on new features, so expect to see updates posted in the message board of the Umbrella dashboard as new things become available.
