Why Umbrella for your college or university
Umbrella, used by hundreds of colleges and universities today, uniquely provides an internet-wide layer of cybersecurity that both protects against malware infections, and prevents command and control callback infected devices from phoning home.
Our unique approach means malware can’t get in, and threats can’t wreak havoc. No other security product can be deployed faster. If you’re like many of the world’s leading universities that we count as customers, you’ll soon find it to be the most indispensable cybersecurity service you have.
Cisco supports student education. The Cisco Umbrella Education package, exclusively for K-12 schools and higher education institutions, is licensed by the number of faculty and staff users. There is zero charge for protecting your students!
Simple to deploy and easy to manage
Umbrella’s cloud-delivered, DNS-based service can be deployed across an entire university in a matter of minutes with no impact to any network resources. There is no hardware or software to install. Simply point DNS traffic to our global network to protect your users both on and off the network.
Universities often have network backbones that provide large bandwidth connections to their campuses for research and learning needs. Unlike other services that use tough-to-scale, traditional on-premises hardware, Umbrella scales seamlessly with a university’s bandwidth needs. All of this without adding latency, requiring costly upgrades or introducing an additional point of failure.
Why Cloudlock for your college or university
Universities and colleges are under constant pressure to reduce costs and increase efficiencies for their IT infrastructure, students, faculty, and staff. Adopting cloud applications introduces such benefits, but also introduces security and data privacy concerns. Higher education institutions must pay special attention to regulated data, such as FERPA protected data, Payment Card Industry (PCI), personally identifiable information (PII) and protected health information (PHI), as well as other sensitive information in the form of research data (e.g. ITAR) or intellectual property (IP).
Cisco Cloudlock helps institutions protect their data in the cloud while maintaining compliance. Higher education institutions use Cloudlock to reduce risk, achieve compliance, manage threats and increase staff and student productivity in the cloud.
“The all around experience with Cloudlock has been terrific. From data loss prevention (DLP) to user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA), we’ve gotten the visibility we need into our cloud environments and have been able to extend our security policy to those locations.”
