Umbrella Professional

Cloud-Delivered Network Security and Web Filtering that Protects 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 or Web content.

Umbrella Professional is for IT professionals who want to set and forget it. It provides security against Internet threats, advanced attacks and security breaches. And it maintains 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.
