Cisco’s SASE (Secure Access Service Edge) approach
Umbrella is the core of Cisco’s security-based approach to SASE but networking and identity are essential components in a wholistic approach. Cisco is ready to enable a cloud transition at any speed with a SASE architecture that includes security, networking and identity.
Secure Web Gateway
Umbrella’s secure web gateway functionality offers full visibility into web traffic for protection, control and secure direct-to-internet breakouts. These capabilities are now available with our new Umbrella SIG Essentials package.
Tenant Controls enable a security administrator to put policies around a user’s ability to access corporate and/or personal instances of specific enterprise applications. By providing domains and identifiers, Tenant Controls are designed to explicitly allow user access to approved corporate applications, while blocking access to other instances of these same applications.
Cloud-delivered firewall: Layer 7 application visibility & control
The Cisco Umbrella cloud-delivered firewall provides visibility and control for outbound internet traffic across all ports and protocols. It logs all activity and blocks unwanted traffic using IP, port, and protocol rules (layer 3 / 4) plus application visibility and control (layer 7). The cloud-delivered firewall employs signature detection to identify and block 2,800 applications (more added on a regular basis).
Fast Forward time to value with automated security
The Cisco SD-WAN and Umbrella integration enables you to infuse effective cloud security throughout your SD-WAN fabric so you can protect your branch offices and roaming users.
AV-TEST Places Cisco Umbrella first in security efficacy – again!
In 2020 AV-TEST evaluated Cisco Umbrella’s secure web gateway (enhanced with DNS security) and DNS-layer protection functionality. Umbrella crushed the competition with a 96.39% total detection rate and a significantly lower false positive rate than other products. And, while we don’t like to brag, this data is too good to keep quiet, especially since this is the second year in a row that AV-TEST has found that Umbrella outperforms competitive offerings.
