How Umbrella & Talos work together
Cisco Umbrella gains statistical models, machine learning algorithms, and enormous volumes of threat data through Cisco Talos, the world’s largest non-governmental threat intelligence organization. Umbrella uses these insights to map a holistic view of the threat landscape and to better detect nefarious activity and anticipate future attacks.
The advanced analytics and threat intelligence data provided by Cisco Talos helps us block over 170 million malicious DNS queries daily, and protect more than 24,000 enterprise customers.
Umbrella blocks daily:
Malware related requests
Command and control requests
Unmatched threat intelligence

The Talos team of world-class engineers, mathematicians, and security researchers actively monitor the threat landscape, so you and your Cisco Secure solutions continue to stay one step ahead of bad actors.
