Cisco’s Umbrella – Another Effective Layer of Security

umbUp and running for only 20 days, Cisco Umbrella has protected us from 358 potential security issues. Diving deeper into the actual events show that many of these events are potentially dangerous sites, but better safe than sorry.

The most compelling aspect of this product is that it works in the cloud, before the data even gets to you. Most Web Filtering security solutions work at the perimeter level, meaning the data gets to your firewall and then it is blocked. Umbrella, does this at the DNS layer in the cloud, ultimately cutting down on your own bandwidth usage and providing security. two birds with one stone.

While I wouldn’t suggest you go and throw out any of your other security solutions, Umbrella can be a great add on to your overall security strategy.
