It is an optimal service for operating under COVID-19, where remote work has become the norm.

Cisco Umbrella features

Feature 1

Simple and quick to install, thanks to being a cloud service

All that is needed for installation is to enter your DNS server settings into Cisco Umbrella. It will be simply added on to your existing security, such as firewalls and antivirus applications, without conflict or duplication, strengthening your network security. For devices taken outside your company premises, a roaming client can be installed to allow those devices to also be protected by Umbrella.

Feature 2

Security equal to your internal network, without using a VPN

Because Cisco Umbrella provides security in the DNS layer, which is indispensible for Internet use, it can be applied to all Internet-using devices and all networks (all places), making it a perfect fit for companies pursuing work reform.

Feature 3

Makes direct Internet access from your offices secure

Normally, strengthening the security of multiple branch offices requires hardware-based approaches such as installing high-performance security appliances, bringing with it the costs and issues associated with hardware purchase, maintenance, and assigning of administrators. With Cisco Umbrella, however, installation is simple and low-cost.

If your branch offices already have the Cisco ISR 4000 router series, which supports SD-WANs, then by using Umbrella with these routers you can do DNS security checks on the DNS access of your office PCs.
