Welcome to Cisco Umbrella

Umbrella is Cisco's cloud-based Secure Internet Gateway (SIG) platform that provides you with multiple levels of defense against internet-based threats. Umbrella integrates secure web gateway, firewall, DNS-layer security, and cloud access security broker (CASB) functionality to protect your systems against threats. The quickest way to get started is to open your favorite browser, log into your Umbrella dashboard at, register a network by adding a network identity, and then point your DNS to Umbrella.

Note: Public IP traffic from SIG users will appear to come from the address ranges and Depending on your organization, you may be required to inform service providers that you access through the Umbrella service of these additional IP address ranges. For example, some service providers require prior knowledge of the IP address ranges used before allowing access to their service.
