Enforcement built into the foundation of the internet

Cisco Umbrella uses the internet’s infrastructure to block malicious destinations before a connection is ever established. By delivering security from the cloud, not only is Umbrella easy to deploy, but we also provide more effective security.

Here's How:

DNS & IP layer enforcement

DNS & IP layer enforcement

Umbrella uses DNS to stop threats over all ports and protocols - even direct-to-IP connections. Stop malware before it reaches your endpoints or network.

Intelligent proxy

Intelligent proxy

Instead of proxying all web traffic, Umbrella routes requests to risky domains for deeper URL and file inspection. Effectively protect without delay or performance impact.


Command & control callback blocking

Even if devices become infected in other ways, Umbrella prevents connections to attacker’s servers. Stop data exfiltration and execution of ransomware encryption.

Predictive intelligence

Predictive intelligence

Umbrella’s live threat intelligence uncovers and blocks malicious domains, IPs, and URLs before they’re even used in attacks

Visibility into traffic both ON and OFF your network

Your users and apps have left the perimeter. Umbrella provides visibility into internet activity across all devices, over all ports, even when users are off your corporate network. You can even retain the logs forever.

Threat intelligence to see attacks before they launch

Umbrella learns from internet activity to automatically identify attacker infrastructure staged for current and emergent threats. We capture and understand relationships between malware, domains, IPs, and networks across the internet.


Umbrella analyses data to identify patterns, detect anomalies and create models to predict if a domain or IP is likely malicious. Automatically correlate data and block attacks.

Access our threat intelligence of global DNS requests for a complete view of the relationships between domains, IPs, and malware. Enrich your incident response and SIEM data.


Umbrella uses URL and file reputation scores from Cisco Talos and Cisco AMP to block malicious content. Benefit from daily analysis of millions of malware samples and terabytes of data.

Enterprise-wide deployment in minutes

Umbrella is the simplest security you’ll ever deploy. There is no hardware to install or software to manually update, and the browser-based interface provides quick setup and ongoing management.


Here's How:

On-network devices

On-network Devices

By changing one setting on your network server, access point or router, you can protect all devices - even those you don’t manage. Implement powerful security without operational complexity.

Off-network laptops

Off-network Laptops

Protect laptops when the VPN is off with Umbrella’s light weight roaming client or built-in Cisco AnyConnect integration. Easily extend protection beyond the corporate network.

Browser-based interface

Browser-based Interface

The Umbrella dashboard provides both central and local administration and reporting. Effectively create and manage policies, even for complex organizations.

API-based integrations to the rest of your security stack

Umbrella’s API enables you to integrate with your existing solutions to amplify protection. Automatically enrich the data in your SIEM, threat intelligence platform, or incident workflow to speed up investigation and response by security analysts.
