The Umbrella Secure Cloud Gateway
Say goodbye to security tradeoffs. The Umbrella Secure Cloud Gateway eliminates the need to choose between the pillars of performance, efficacy and manageability by intelligently combining multiple security enforcement technologies into one cloud-delivered security service. We pair leading security intelligence with robust security enforcement to work in harmony that improves all three pillars.
Umbrella integrates predictive threat detection – powered by the analysis of 50 billion daily Internet connections – into our security platform to prevent malware infections, contain botnets from connecting, and to block phishing or unacceptable sites. Cloud-delivered and cloud-managed Umbrella secures all devices, on and off network, without complex deployment or management.
At the heart of the Umbrella Secure Cloud Gateway is a platform that harnesses the power of both the largest DNS global infrastructure and the Umbrella Intelligent Proxy. Why should you proxy all traffic, when only a small fraction of it requires deeper inspection? The Umbrella service selectively routes high-risk and suspicious connections through a transparent, cloud-hosted proxy, giving you maximum efficacy without sacrificing performance, introducing bandwidth bottlenecks or reducing manageability.Microscope - Global DNS Infrastructure
Based on our predictive security intelligence of the domain requested and IP address response, the service either transparently routes (1) safe connections to the site’s IP address with zero net new latency, (2) malicious connections to our block page server’s IP address or (3) high-risk or suspicious connections to our cloud proxy’s IP address for deeper inspection.World - 50M+ Users
Over 50 million users and 7,000 businesses across 160+ countries point their Internet gateway devices (e.g. access point, router, proxy) or internal DNS servers to OpenDNS’s Anycast IP address for recursive DNS resolution. Optionally, for more granularity on-network or to extend enforcement off-network, lightweight components are available for your networks or laptops.Measuring Cup - Intelligent Proxy
A relatively small number of sites host both safe and malicious content. OpenDNS transparently routes connections to such sites via our cloud-hosted proxies distributed across our data centers to block only the malicious content, and allow the safe content.
Umbrella’s centralized Web-based dashboard simplifies deployment and management, provides flexible policy configuration, enforces policies based on location, and delivers aggregated reports at the user, device, group or network level.Security Settings
Eight settings are powered by the OpenDNS Security Graph to supply context to IT security teams, within one minute, on the type or behavior of the threat blocked. There is no need for tuning or intervention by security administrators.Filtering Categories
60 categories, plus an unlimited number of customizable whitelists or blacklists, enable administrators to create flexible acceptable use policies.Product Overview - 2.3
A policy links one or more “identities” — public or internal network, laptop or mobile device, AD group or user or computer — to one of several possible security, filtering and block page “settings”. Set one blanket policy, or design multiple policies, to enforce every identity across your entire organization.Insightful Reporting
Search activity in real-time, filter pre-defined reports to pinpoint threats and risks, or cross-reference information to locate related incidents. These insights are reported in both tabular and graphical formats on-screen, or can be exported for further analysis.
With easy-to-manage security agents for Windows and Mac laptops and iOS devices, and integration with Active Directory, you’ll get actionable insight into risky user and compromised device activity, on and off the network, in under one minute.
