A new reality: the rise of remote and roaming users requires a new approach to security
88% of organizations have 5 or more remote offices, and over 40% of users are considered remote or roaming — a number that continues to increase.
This landscape requires a fundamentally new approach to securing remote workers and locations. As SaaS usage rises, roaming users become an even more attractive target for cyber threats. Find out how to shift your network security, gain control, and protect users more effectively.
Roaming and remote workers seen as most vulnerable, hard to protect
Today’s users work everywhere, making the challenge of protecting them from threats like malware, phishing, ransomware, and cryptomining even more difficult.
Furthermore, many workers are bypassing traditional perimeter security solutions, such as VPN, to access the internet and SaaS apps leaving your employees exposed. Organizations overwhelmingly see roaming and remote users as their most vulnerable.
The results of a survey conducted by Enterprise Strategy Group of 450+ cybersecurity experts prove this to be a more than valid concern, with 68% of respondents citing branch or roaming users were the source of recent compromise.

Traditional perimeter and endpoint security are no longer providing enough protection
When data exfiltration starts minutes after a system is compromised, advanced detection tools may not help your short-staffed security team stop security breaches in time.
Our endpoint security footprints enforce policies at the DNS layer to prevent system compromise and data exfiltration – over any port or protocol. Whether a user is on or off the corporate network, Cisco Umbrella logs or blocks all internet activity destined to malicious infrastructures — unlike antivirus, sandboxes, or other agents that log or block only some device activity from malicious payloads.
All Cisco Umbrella packages provide roaming protection for Windows, MacOS, iOS, Chrome OS, and Android devices, no matter where a user may go.
Umbrella extends security beyond the perimeter
Cisco Umbrella secures internet access and controls cloud app usage from your networks, branch offices, and roaming users. We can help you block malware, simplify security and secure remote and roaming workers, without overburdening your staff.
Backed by Cisco Talos, one of the largest cyber threat intelligence teams in the world, Umbrella exposes internet threats for better incident investigation and response. Delivered from the cloud with 100% uptime, Umbrella offers flexibility and better visibility and enforcement for any device, anywhere. No hardware or software to install or maintain.

Protect any device, anywhere
Better off-network endpoint protection is here. Cisco Umbrella provides the first and last line of defense to help you prevent, detect, and respond to attacks on your roaming user’s mobile devices, laptops, and tablets before damage can be done.
Umbrella offers easy-to-deploy roaming clients for Android, iOS, Google Chromebook, Mac, Windows, and Cisco AnyConnect. Multiple deployment methods enable organizations to seamlessly secure all managed devices in mere minutes, protecting users from connections to malicious destinations and command-and-control callbacks at the DNS layer anywhere they go.
