ConnectDS provides resell services for Cisco Umbrella –fast & flexible effective cloud-delivered security solutions.
Your network traffic is on the move more than ever; travelling to an increasing amount of remote locations, roaming users and SaaS apps. A lot of it will also be going to the cloud.
Centralised security appliances are often expensive, inefficient and can lead to poor UX. Remote offices and users have the potential to bypass on premises security and it can cause slow security to turn into no security.
This is where Cisco Umbrella comes in; a smart and effective solution to improve both security and performance. Umbrella delivers multiple security functions in a single, simple to manage cloud service, which can be referred to as a Secure Access Service Edge (SASE).
The SASE enforces security at the DNS and IP layers to block malware, ransomware, phishing and botnets, stopping threats before they reach your network or endpoints. Umbrella’s secure web gateway logs and inspects all web traffic for greater transparency and control. You can decrypt and inspect ‘https’ traffic, block specific URLs that violate policies and protect against advanced malware with anti-virus detection and sandboxing.
A cloud-delivered firewall makes it easy to set IP, ports and protocol to prevent unwanted activity. You can block high-risk non web-apps in a few clicks. You can also block risky cloud apps, certain file types or even specific app behaviours like file uploads.
Umbrella analyses over 200 billion internet requests everyday for unprecedented threat insights, you can harness through a web console or API so you can prioritise incidents and accelerate your response times.
