Cisco Umbrella is a cloud security platform that provides the first line of defense against internet threats wherever users go. Built into the foundation of the internet, Umbrella uses the internet's infrastructure to block malicious destinations before a connection is even established. By delivering security from the cloud, you not only save money, but also provide more effective security.

What makes Umbrella a secure fit for all businesses?

Cisco Umbrella packages are designed to provide the feature-functionality needed for any business. From small businesses without dedicated security professionals to multinational enterprises with complex environments, Umbrella offers three primary packages that provide increasingly more sophisticated capabilities for increased flexibility, visibility, and control, no matter where users go, what device they use and what network they connect to.

Security functions of Cisco Umbrella

DNS-layer security

Umbrella’s DNS-layer security provides the fastest, easiest way to improve your security. It helps improve security visibility, detect compromised systems, and protect your users on and off the network by stopping threats over any port or protocol before they reach your network or endpoints.

Secure web gateway

Umbrella’s secure web gateway logs and inspects web traffic for full visibility, URL and application controls, and protection against malware. Use IPsec tunnels, PAC files, or proxy chaining to forward traffic to our cloud-based proxy to enforce acceptable use policies and block advanced threats.


Umbrella’s firewall logs all activity and blocks unwanted traffic using IP, port, and protocol rules. To forward traffic, simply configure an IPsec tunnel from any network device. As new tunnels are created, policies are automatically applied for easy setup and consistent enforcement everywhere.

Cloud access security broker

Umbrella exposes shadow IT by providing the ability to detect and report on cloud applications in use across your organization. For discovered apps, view details on the risk level and block or control usage to better manage cloud adoption and reduce risk.

Interactive threat intelligence

Our unique view of the internet gives us unprecedented insight into malicious domains, IPs, and URLs. Available via a console and API, Umbrella Investigate provides real-time context on malware, phishing, botnets, trojans and other threats enabling faster incident investigation and response.

Integration with SD WAN

The Umbrella and Cisco SD WAN integration deploys easily across your network for powerful cloud security and protection against internet threats. Our integrated approach secures cloud access and efficiently protects your branch users, connected devices, and app usage from all direct internet access breakouts.
