How it works
Here are three ways Cisco Umbrella DNS security can be an advantage to your organization:
Cisco Umbrella uses DNS to stop threats over all ports and protocols. Stop malware earlier and prevent callbacks to attackers if infected machines connect to your network.
Web security via selective proxy
Cisco Umbrella routes risky domain requests to a selective proxy for deeper URL and file inspection. This allows you to effectively protect critical infrastructure without delay or performance impact.
App discovery and blocking
Cisco Umbrella provides visibility into cloud apps used across your organization, giving you the ability to identify potential risks and easily block specified applications.
Unmatched threat intelligence
Backed by Cisco Talos, the world’s largest non-governmental threat intelligence organization, Cisco Umbrella uses statistical models and machine learning algorithms to identify and defend against new attacks happening across the internet.
Through the Umbrella Investigate console and API, administrators gain real-time context into malware, phishing, botnets, and more, enabling faster incident investigation and response.
Deploy and configure in minutes
Without hardware to install or software to maintain, Cisco Umbrella DNS security is the simplest security solution you’ll ever set up. Additionally, the browser-based interface provides quick configuration and easy ongoing management, which helps to ensure your organization won’t be hampered by downtime or frequent maintenance.
You’ll enjoy industry-leading security features without interruptions, allowing you to focus on your business – not worrying about cyber threats.
Strengthen your security stack and improve DNS response time the easy way
