Cisco Umbrella

Cisco Umbrella is a cloud security product that unifies multiple security services in a single cloud-delivered platform to secure internet access and control cloud app usage from customer networks, branch offices, and roaming users. Depending on the package and deployment, Cisco Umbrella integrates secure web gateway, cloud-delivered firewall, DNS-layer security, cloud malware protection, application discovery, data loss prevention (DLP), remote browser isolation (RBI) and more, for effective protection anywhere users go.

Before users connect to any online destination, Cisco Umbrella acts as a secure onramp to the Internet and delivers deep inspection and control to support compliance and block threats. Cisco Umbrella is backed by one of the largest threat intelligence teams in the world, Cisco Talos, and it provides interactive access to threat intelligence
through Cisco Umbrella Investigate to aid in incident response and threat research.

Cisco Umbrella Investigate provides access to certain Cisco threat intelligence about malicious domains, IPs, networks, and file hashes. Using a diverse dataset of billions of daily DNS requests and live views of the connections between different networks on the Internet, Cisco applies statistical models and human intelligence to identify attackers’ infrastructures.
