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.
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.
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
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.
