Why You Should Consider the Cisco Umbrella

Cybersecurity is top of mind for just about everyone working in technology today.

Cisco’s latest security product launch has perfect timing as we all continue to battle the onslaught of new cyber threats, thanks to work-from-home orders, quickly expanding network perimeters and a serious spike in online business.

Add an Additional Layer of Security

The Cisco Umbrella solution is designed to companies of all sizes an additional security layer that is easy to use and extensive from on-premise servers to mobile endpoints. The product focuses on blocking even more threats, speeding up incident response and improving overall Internet performance.

Simply put, Umbrella is a cloud security service that will protect your equipment and your users in minutes. The tool reduces the number of intrusions and stops threats earlier than most of its security counterparts.

Umbrella is simple to install as no hardware or software to manually update. Your IT staff will appreciate that, plus it reduces remediation time by 50 percent.

It blocks malware, ransomware, phishing and botnets before a connection to your network or endpoints is even established. It also covers the laptops used by remote workers and iOS devices.

Umbrella keeps out the bad actors, no matter what their next move is. As cybercriminals become more and more sophisticated — and sneaky — business leaders must have a tool that keeps up.

Providing protection on and off-network is critical in today’s evolving workspaces. As our office landscape continues to evolve, thanks to the global pandemic of COVID-19, our security solutions must keep up.

Ramp Up Threat Reporting

Administrators can count on Cisco’s reporting and respond to threats in real-time thanks to a complete picture of a company’s security risks. Reducing valuable time spent investigating and accelerating into remediation will improve your company’s overall security posture.

It’s online network security taken to the next level. For the first time, your IT staff can view a comprehensive layout of the entire technological perimeter, creating a great return on their time and training investment.

Reporting is also a key feature for Cisco Umbrella.

The program allows you to easily spot and remediate cyber threats, as you quickly view trends across your deployment. IT staffers will appreciate gaining a complete picture of the security risks within your organization.

Less time spent researching, more time spent remediating.

Umbrella also categorizes Internet activity and retains records, for the benefit of speeding up your investigation process and reducing response times. Remediation can be automated through integrations across Cisco security products.

Automation and integration meet high-level, extensive security protection.
