Industry’s first Secure Internet Gateway in the cloudStop threats before they reach your network or endpoints
First line of defense against threats
Cisco Umbrella is a cloud security platform built into the foundation of the internet. Enforcing security at the DNS and IP layers, Umbrella blocks requests to malicious and unwanted destinations before a connection is even established — stopping threats over any port or protocol before they reach your network or endpoints.
Visibility and protection everywhere
As a cloud-delivered service, Umbrella provides the visibility needed to protect internet access across all network devices, office locations, and roaming users. All internet activity is logged and categorized by the type of security threat or web content, and the action taken — whether it was blocked or allowed. Logs of all activity can be retained as long as needed and recalled easily for investigation. You can even uncover cloud apps and Internet of Things (IoT)
devices in use across your company.
How we do it
Intelligence to see attacks before they launch
Our global network infrastructure handles over 100 billion internet requests a day, which gives us a unique view of relationships between domains, IPs, networks, and malware across the internet. Similar to Amazon learning from shopping patterns to suggest the next purchase, we learn from internet activity patterns to automatically identify attacker infrastructure being staged for the next threat, and then block users from going to malicious destinations.
Enterprise-wide deployment in minutes
Umbrella is the fastest and easiest way to protect all of your users in minutes. It’s powerful, effective security without the typical operational complexity. By performing everything in the cloud with 100% uptime, there is no hardware to install, and no software to manually update.
What is a SIG?
This is a brand new category forming in the security market. A Secure Internet Gateway (SIG) provides safe access to the internet anywhere users go, even when they are off the VPN. Before you connect to any destination, a SIG acts as your secure onramp to the internet and provides the first line of defense and inspection. Regardless of where users are located or what they’re trying to connect to, traffic goes through the SIG first. Once the traffic gets to the SIG cloud platform, there are different types of inspection and policy enforcement that can happen. Cisco is leading the way in this market with the introduction of the Cisco Umbrella product.
