How does DNS relate to security?

Many security products provide visibility into what’s happening on your own network. But do you see what’s happening on the whole internet, beyond your perimeter? That’s where attackers are staging infrastructure in preparation for launching attacks.

Cisco Umbrella Investigate provides the most complete view of an attacker’s infrastructure, and enables security teams to discover malicious domains, IPs, and file hashes, and even predict emergent threats.

This platform contributes  to enhancement of your cybersecurity resilience framework within the minutes

Extended protection

To help organizations embrace direct internet access, in addition to DNS-layer security and interactive threat intelligence, Cisco Umbrella now includes secure web gateway, firewall, and cloud access security broker (CASB) functionality, plus integration with Cisco SD-WAN, delivered from a single cloud security service

About DNS Security

DNS-layer security

Umbrella’s DNS-layer security provides the fastest, easiest way to improve your security. It helps improve security visibility, detect compromised systems, and protect your users on and off the network by stopping threats over any port or protocol before they reach your network or endpoints.

Secure web gateway

Umbrella’s secure web gateway logs and inspects web traffic for full visibility, URL and application controls, and protection against malware. Use IPsec tunnels, PAC files, or proxy chaining to forward traffic to our cloud-based proxy to enforce acceptable use policies and block advanced threats.


Umbrella’s firewall logs all activity and blocks unwanted traffic using IP, port, and protocol rules. To forward traffic, simply configure an IPsec tunnel from any network device. As new tunnels are created, policies are automatically applied for easy setup and consistent enforcement everywhere.

Cloud access security broker

Umbrella exposes shadow IT by providing the ability to detect and report on cloud applications in use across your organization. For discovered apps, view details on the risk level and block or control usage to better manage cloud adoption and reduce risk.

Integration with SD‑WAN

The Umbrella and Cisco SD‑WAN integration deploys easily across your network for powerful cloud security and protection against internet threats. Our integrated approach secures cloud access and efficiently protects your branch users, connected devices, and app usage from all direct internet access breakouts.

Interactive threat intelligence

Our unique view of the internet gives us unprecedented insight into malicious domains, IPs, and URLs. Available via a console and API, Umbrella Investigate provides real-time context on malware, phishing, botnets, trojans and other threats enabling faster incident investigation and response
