Simplifying security for SMB with DNS-layer protection
Most threats attempt to infiltrate at the domain level. This makes the DNS layer a primary target for attackers. In fact, 90% of malware uses DNS in attacks, yet only 68% of organizations monitor their DNS. Security teams that are not monitoring DNS for indications of compromise are missing an important opportunity.
- DNS traffic is a critical dataset to analyze
- DNS security prevents threats at the earliest point of contact
- DNS provides a single view of all internet activity across every location, device, and user
Find out why threat protection is more effective when it starts at the DNS layer in this 30 second video.
Small businesses deserve big protection
Today’s small businesses face the same security challenges as larger organizations. In fact, they can be seen as an even bigger target, as cybercriminals expect smaller businesses to have less protection than more equipped enterprises.

How DNS-layer security works for small business
Traditional security appliances and agents must wait until malware reaches the perimeter or endpoint before they can detect or prevent it. With DNS-layer security from Cisco Umbrella, you can stop attacks earlier in the kill chain.
By enforcing security at the DNS layer, Umbrella stops threats before they ever reach your network or endpoints. By analyzing and learning from internet activity patterns, Umbrella automatically uncovers attacker infrastructure staged for current and emerging threats, and proactively blocks requests to malicious destinations before a connection is even established.
