All of the DNS Queries are sent to Cisco Umbrella and you have more visibility of what users are asking, as well as what users are accessing over the Internet. You have all of the details and all of the information of what the users are accessing, even before they get access to the website. For example, if one website is malicious and it has some malware and some viruses in it, and a user sends a request to this URL, it will be reported in the Cisco Umbrella Cloud before the user gets the response back from the webserver. It will protect, give you more robustness, and faster responses, compared to any firewalls or any of the proxy web servers. Based on the DNS, Web proxy, and other servers, it waits until after the DNS request. It will put in its action after the user gets it by the webserver when the response is coming back. In the end, the response from the malicious server will come into your network. Cisco Umbrella cloud has stopped it before that. You have one more layer of security on top of the URL filtering or on top of that server response. The deployment was for two thousand plus users. We have multiple sites, and we have some remote users in different locations. Cisco Umbrella is a fitting solution for DNS-based attacks and malware protection. It is a very good solution for that, and especially for remote users. View full review »
