Product Overview: Cisco Umbrella
Cisco’s Umbrella harnesses the power of Cisco’s broad expertise in networking and security to provide added layers of protection across the Enterprise.
Key Cisco Umbrella product deliverables include;
DNS -Layer Security
Umbrella’s DNS-layer security helps improve security visibility, detect compromised systems, and protects your users by stopping threats over any port or protocol before they reach your network or endpoints.
Secure Web Gateway
Umbrella’s secure web gateway monitors and inspects web traffic increasing network visibility. It also offers URL and application controls and improves protection against malware. Secure Web gateway permits administrators to use IPsec tunnels, PAC files, or proxy chaining to forward traffic to Cisco’s cloud-based proxy to enforce acceptable use policies and block advanced threats.
Umbrella’s firewall logs all activity and blocks unwanted traffic using IP address, port blocking, and protocol rules. To forward traffic, administrators can easily configure an IPsec tunnel from any network device. As new tunnels are created, security policies are automatically applied to simplify setup and ensure consistent policy enforcement across the Enterprise.
