Speed up incident response

Incident response times lag when security teams don’t have access to key information. Umbrella categorizes and retains all internet activity to simplify the investigation process. Using the Umbrella Investigate console and on-demand enrichment API, it provides context to prioritize incidents and speed up incident response.

Unmatched threat intelligence

Leveraging threat intelligence from Cisco Talos, one of the largest commercial threat intelligence teams in the world with more than 300 researchers, Umbrella uncovers and blocks a broad spectrum of malicious domains, IPs, URLs, and files that are being used in attacks. We also feed huge volumes of global internet activity into a combination of statistical and machine learning models to proactively identify new attacks being staged on the internet.

Improve performance

Umbrella has a highly resilient network environment that boasts 100% uptime since 2006. Using Anycast routing, any of our 30 plus data centers across the globe are available using the same single IP address, so your requests are transparently sent to the nearest, fastest data center and failover is automatic. Umbrella peers with more than 1000 of the world’s top internet service providers (ISPs), content delivery networks (CDNs) and SaaS platforms to deliver superior speed and user satisfaction.
