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.
DNSSEC now supported
Umbrella now supports DNSSEC by performing validation on queries sent from Umbrella resolvers to upstream authorities. Customers can have the confidence that Umbrella is protecting their organization from cache poisoning attacks, without having to perform validation locally.
Cisco Umbrella supports DoH
Cisco Umbrella supports DNS over HTTPS (DoH), a standard published by the IETF. Users may now choose to use the DNS over HTTPS endpoint instead of sending DNS queries over plaintext for increased security and privacy. Cisco Umbrella supports Mozilla’s ‘use-application-dns.net’ canary domain, meaning that Firefox will disable DoH for users of Cisco Umbrella.
Easily determine risk factors for a domain with Cisco Umbrella Investigate
Now analysts can use Investigate’s new and improved risk score to get the context needed to understand what factors contribute to the domain’s score resulting in deeper visibility, faster triage and better decision making.
AV-TEST Places Cisco Umbrella First in Security Efficacy
In November and December 2019, AV-TEST performed a review of Cisco Umbrella alongside comparable offerings from Akamai, Infoblox, Palo Alto Networks, Symantec and Zscaler. In both the DNS-layer protection and Secure Web Gateway test scenarios Cisco Umbrella’s detection rate outperformed the offerings from other vendors.
