Protect yourself against:

  • Malware & ransomware
  • Internal threats
  • Visibility & coverage gaps
  • Data Breaches


The First Line of Defence - Umbrella Cloud Solutions

In the past, desktops, business apps, and critical infrastructure were all located behind the firewall. Today, users don’t need to be on the corporate network to get work done.

It is predicted that by 2021 the average company will have 25% of its corporate data traffic bypassing the network perimeter. When a user is off-network, they are more vulnerable and the organization lacks visibility and protection. If you rely on perimeter security alone, you’re not fully protected. These gaps open the door for malware, ransomware, and other attacks.

Cisco Umbrella provides the first line of defence against threats on the internet wherever users go. Umbrella delivers complete visibility into internet activity across all locations, devices, and users, and blocks threats before they ever reach your network or endpoints. As a cloud-delivered, open platform, Umbrella integrates easily with your existing security stack and delivers live threat intelligence about current and emerging threats.

Your Challenges

Present day threats come from all directions, both external and internal. To keep up, you need eyes in the back of your head.

The most significant threats are not surprisingly the most publicly reported. These are:


Malware and ransomeware
Malware and ransomware
Compromised accounts
Compromised accounts & malicious insiders
IT security Gaps in visibility and coverageGaps in visibility and coverage
IT Data breaches
Data breaches and compliance

Intelligence to stop attacks before they launch

The Umbrella global network, which is the network that our recursive DNS service is built on, resolves billions of internet requests from millions of users around the world every day. We analyse this massive amount of data to detect patterns and uncover attacker infrastructure. Using this combination of human intelligence and machine learning we identify malicious sites - whether it's domains, IPs, or URLs - all across the Internet.

This allows you to amplify existing investments, and easily extend protection everywhere.
