Cisco Umbrella lets you manage the internet experience on and off your network, putting you in control.
Do you enforce acceptable web use to comply with internal policies? Are you required to meet compliance regulations for internet safety like CIPA? With Umbrella, you can effectively manage your user’s internet access through category-based content web filtering, allow/block lists, and SafeSearch browsing enforcement.
“What I like about Umbrella is that it’s a cloud solution which replaces the web filtering work we used to do internally. We can choose safe, HR-acceptable categories for content filtering fast.”

With 80+ content categories covering millions of domains and billions of web pages, Umbrella gives you control over which sites can be accessed by your users. Select “high”, “moderate”, or “low” content settings, or create a custom list based on your need.
Using allow and block lists you can ensure users can always or never access certain sites, regardless of the content web filtering settings applied. Umbrella enables unlimited entries and offers bulk upload for easier administration.
Umbrella’s block bypass feature allows certain individuals, such as your marketing managers, to access specific web filtering categories, such as social networking, or individual domains, that are normally blocked on your network. This ensures that you’re giving the right access and information to the right users.
Major search engines provide SafeSearch filters that help to block explicit images, videos, and websites from search results. End users can easily turn off this feature within search engines, however, with Umbrella you can enforce this web filtering for Google, YouTube, and Bing. This ensures your users access only suitable browsing content.

Umbrella enables flexible, location-aware enforcement so your users can be assigned to policies with different internet restrictions and logging settings based on whether they’re on or off your network. Umbrella informs users of the policy with branded, customizable block pages, and offers approved, delegated users to bypass these pages.
Umbrella’s easy-to-use, web-based console provides quick setup and ongoing management of policies per IP address, network, device or user, giving you greater control of your organization’s internet usage. Use Umbrella’s policy tester to run simulations to check if policies are enforced the way intended so you can implement with confidence.
