Cisco Security for Chromebook client provides Chromebook users with options for both DNS layer and secure web gateway (SWG) protection. DNS protection is provided by routing the Chromebook’s DNS traffic to Umbrella DNS over HTTPS (DoH) resolvers, and SWG protection is provided by setting up a secure web proxy.

If you are a Cisco Umbrella Chromebook client user or an SWG Umbrella Chromebook client user, see Migration Scenarios before you deploy Cisco Security for Chromebook client.


Policies are at the heart of Umbrella and define how security and access controls are applied to identities. A DNS policy provides DNS layer visibility, security, and enforcement, with the ability to selectively proxy risky domains for added security. The Umbrella web policy is used for the Umbrella Secure Internet Gateway (SIG) platform, providing URL-layer visibility, security, and enforcement for your organization's web traffic. For more information, see Manage DNS Policies and Manage the Web Policy.
