How Umbrella Enables Remote Work

Cisco Umbrella’s lightweight Roaming Client (5mbs) agent can easily be mass deployed in as little as one hour to all employee laptops. The agent serves solely two purposes. First, regardless of from where the end device connects to the internet, the RC forces all traffic to route through Cisco Umbrella DNS resolvers. Second, the RC acts as a unique identifier to allow you to enforce security protection and content filtering on the device without the need for a VPN, as well as bring full visibility into internet activity.

Our First Line of Defense: Cisco Umbrella (Formerly OpenDNS)

Cisco Umbrella is the first line of defense for attacks on the internet. It will protect users that are connecting from many locations and devices. Umbrella can uncover current and emerging threats, provide visibility for activity across all devices and ports, and will stop attacks earlier.


Intelligence to uncover current and emerging threats. 


Visibility for activity across all devices and ports, anywhere. 


Stop phishing, malware and ransomware earlier. 

"Lots of network security providers claim they are the best at threat detection and prevention. But can they prove it? Brand new third-party research from AV-TEST reveals that Cisco Umbrella is the industry leader in security efficacy, according to the 2020 DNS-Layer Protection and Secure Web Gateway Security Efficacy report."

How Does it Work?

Umbrella uses the internet’s infrastructure to block malicious destinations before a connection is ever established. If you are using the internet, you are using DNS (Domain Name System) – whether you are a 20-person non-profit or a chain of retail stores across the nation. With Umbrella, you can leverage DNS for security and protection across all your users, networks and devices.
