You want to ensure a great experience for guests, which includes fast Wi-Fi access. But there are security and legal liability concerns. You don’t want guests downloading copyrighted material or viewing inappropriate content from your network. Or worse, negative press on your brand if your guests’ identities or information are stolen when connecting to a malicious site from your network.
Umbrella is the easiest and fastest cloud-delivered service to provision your guests compliant Wi-Fi security everywhere. Our Umbrella WLAN package enforces network security and content filtering at the DNS layer. Umbrella WLAN provides on-network protection only and we charge by AP rather than by user.
Meraki MR & Umbrella
Deploy Umbrella across your Meraki network with just a few clicks. In minutes, your users will be protected against threats such as malware, ransomware, and C2 callbacks with no added latency.
A painless deployment, even for thousands of locations
Whether you want to provide Wi-Fi security to a few hotspots or tens of thousands, you simply point DNS traffic to our global network. There’s just one IP address to remember thanks to our Anycast Routing technology. And our partnerships with Meraki, Cradlepoint, and Aerohive make provisioning Umbrella as simple as a checkbox. Assign policies in one place and gain visibility everywhere.
A transparent experience — secure, blazing fast internet
Umbrella uses DNS resolvers in the cloud — leveraging the internet’s existing infrastructure. Enterprise-grade web filtering and network security is enforced without any additional latency, hardware, or software. Even better, using an elastic and scalable cloud service means you don’t have to deal with complex sizing guides. And even if you triple your internet pipe’s bandwidth, our cost stays the same.
Flexible acceptable use policies
Over 80 filtering categories and custom allow or block lists ensure that guests only view appropriate content that is consistent with your brand. Creating policies using the cloud-based Umbrella dashboard could not be easier.
Guests are protected from threats
Umbrella prevents malware, command & control callbacks, and phishing from compromising guests’ devices or stealing guests’ identities over any port, protocol, or app. And real-time internet activity is aggregated across all Wi-Fi hotspots in one place.
