Umbrella provides DNS-layer security, secure web gateway (SWG), cloud-delivered firewall (CDFW), application protection (cloud access security broker), and integrated threat intelligence as services in the cloud. To start protecting your systems, enable Umbrella DNS-layer security, and set up Web security through the Umbrella secure web gateway and cloud-delivered firewall.
Umbrella DNS-layer security is straightforward to deploy and is effective in protecting your systems. We recommend that you deploy the DNS-layer security on all networks to protect users and devices. For networks and devices where decryption is not enabled (for example, guest networks), DNS-layer security provides nearly the same efficacy as the SWG. If you require greater visibility and control within your networks, we recommend that you deploy the SWG and CDFW.
