Why you should try Cisco Umbrella

Cisco Umbrella provides 1st line of defence to many threats on the internet.

With more and more industries evolving from the traditional office-based 9 to 5 to a fully flexible environment that means people expect to have the functionality to work anywhere as standard.

Advances in VoIP and Microsoft Office 365 means that remote workers have the same functionality working anywhere they can access an internet connection.

There are many benefits to having flexible and remote workers (check out our blog here).

Did  you know what as many as 70% of mobile workers admit to not using the VPN at all times?

The issue with this is that traditional security only protects against malware, ransomware, phishing and other attacks when employees are on your corporate network. To protect off-network users, you face a tough decision- give up control and visibility, or risk limiting productivity of the employees who enjoy the freedom of working anywhere, using any device or cloud service.

Enter Umbrella

Cisco Umbrella is a cloud security platform that provides the first line of defence against threats on the internet wherever users go. By learning from internet activity patterns, Umbrella automatically uncovers current and emerging threats. And because it’s built into the foundation of the internet and delivered from the cloud, Umbrella is simple to deploy and quickly delivers effective protection.

Umbrella is so sophisticated that it can pre-empt an attack it uses Cisco Talos and other third-party feeds to determine if a URL is malicious.

Talos is Cisco’s threat intelligence organisation, with hundreds if industry-renowned security experts who research attacks and vulnerabilities and feed this intelligence across Cisco products. You can also create a list of custom URLs to be blocked based on your policies.
