Umbrella Insights

Cloud-Delivered Network Security for Protection of Any Device, Anywhere

Umbrella adds a new predictive network security layer for DNS and IP activity providing breach protection and Internet-wide visibility. The cloud-delivered service protects any device, both on and off the corporate network. Umbrella prevents command & control callbacks, malware, and phishing from compromising systems or exfiltrating data over any port or protocol. In real-time, all Internet activity is logged and categorized by type of security threat, Web content, or cloud service. Retain this visibility for as long as required.

Is it right for me?

Umbrella Insights is for IT professionals and security practitioners who need to provide security against Internet threats, advanced attacks and security breaches. And maintain compliance with 60 content category filters.


    • Worldwide coverage in minutes

      OpenDNS protects devices anywhere and stays up-to-date without admin intervention because there is no hardware to install or software to maintain.

    • Comprehensive protection

      Our global network infrastructure handles over 80 billion Internet requests a day, which our Security Graph engine analyzes to learn where attacks are being staged even before the first victim is hit—automatically blocking known or emergent threats.

    • Superior performance

      With OpenDNS there is no added latency, as there is no need to reroute every connection through proxy or VPN gateways to secure mobile users or remote offices. OpenDNS Global Network has proven reliability, handling more than two percent of the world’s Internet requests daily with 100 percent uptime.

    • Internet-wide plus deep enforcement

      Umbrella Insights enforces security at the DNS and IP layers to secure Internet connections over any port, protocol or app. Our Intelligent Proxy feature adds deep inspection at the URL level without degrading performance or manageability.

    • Actionable real-time visibility

      In real-time, all Internet activity is logged and categorized by type of security threat, Web content, or cloud service (including IoT). View globally aggregated reports in your dashboard, and identify targeted attacks by comparing your DNS requests to the world’s. Or schedule and send these reports to your inbox. And retaining this total visibility forever could not be simpler using our integration with Amazon S3.

    • Integrated management workflow

      Umbrella Insights includes our Virtual Appliance and Connector components to identify internal networks or Active Directory users infected or targeted by attacks, without touching devices or re-authenticating users. It enables consistent policy management by AD user or computer group membership. Our Log Management feature enables a simple cloud-to-cloud log storage solution with Amazon S3 that retains all DNS logs for as long as required.
