Cisco Umbrella: cloud-delivered security for all
As a leading provider of recursive DNS security, Cisco Umbrella has helped businesses of all sizes and industries connect to the internet with confidence. We’ve built a reputation on easy deployment and powerful protection anywhere users work.
To help organizations embrace direct internet access, Cisco Umbrella has evolved its cloud security service to include secure web gateway, firewall, and cloud access security broker (CASB) functionality, in addition to DNS-layer security and interactive threat intelligence, plus integration with Cisco SD-WAN. Cisco Umbrella delivers multiple security services in a single cloud security service.
“While other security products slow down requests to the internet by filtering them through inline devices, Cisco Umbrella delivers security from the cloud without added latency, which is crucial because every millisecond counts in patient care.”

Cloud-delivered security for enterprise
Cloud-delivered security provides users with protection from persistent online threats like malware and ransomware. As more enterprise-class companies move to using cloud infrastructure, the attack surface increases exponentially, and there are many more opportunities for sensitive data to be compromised by attacks. Users are also more vulnerable to attacks due to the increasing popularity of enterprise cloud applications, as well as direct internet access (DIA) for remote and roaming users who bypass the safety of the VPN.
“Cisco Umbrella is a quick win for M&A activity. No matter the security posture of the acquired company, moving the company to Umbrella immediately provides us with a profile of internet activity, cloud services used, and malicious activity that must be addressed.”

Saving time and money with cloud security
Cloud security is a great way to save time and money. By using cloud-based security, organizations can reduce the need for a team to manage on-site security, hardware refreshes, and more.
Cloud-delivered security services provide continuous protection without the need for downtime or manual patches and updates. With security databases constantly being updated, cloud security offers the promise of up-to-date security coverage, without the hassle of hardware or complex deployments. Since user and policy management and network monitoring are performed in the cloud, provisioning can be done more quickly. Instead of having separate enterprise security infrastructures for different layers, cloud security combines all elements and data in one place.
Trusted, reliable threat protection
Organizations are looking for a more efficient, multi-function, cloud-based security solution that enables thousands of users to securely connect to cloud apps and the internet from anywhere.
As highly distributed environments become the norm, and SaaS usage continues to rise, enterprises are embracing cloud security to gain control, and protect all of their users more effectively.
Cisco Umbrella provides protection that not only improves security but simplifies management. From delivering unmatched threat protection to assisting with compliance considerations and reducing bandwidth costs, it’s security you can count on every day. Our cloud security infrastructure has delivered 100% business uptime since 2006, with high capacity and throughput, and agile infrastructure.
Enterprise cloud security
Enterprise cloud security is a subcategory of cybersecurity. It is a broad term that can include security policies, technologies, applications, and controls that are used to protect sensitive enterprise and user data wherever it is exposed in a public, private, or hybrid cloud environment.
Like many technical terms, cloud security (and “the cloud”) can mean different things to different people. In some cases, the general term “cloud security” might refer to the tools and practices used to provide web application security for enterprise cloud-based applications, or it could refer to securing an organization’s access to the cloud — what is referred to as a “cloud access security broker” (CASB).
