Cisco Umbrella Secure Internet Gateway (SIG)

Unlock the highest levels of protection and control in an evolving threat landscape with Cisco Umbrella Secure Internet Gateway


One cloud service, multiple powerful security features

Your users are working from anywhere, accessing applications everywhere, while using a myriad of devices. With these shifts, centralized security policy enforcement diminishes, and the risk of successful attacks or compliance violations increases. How can you protect roaming workers, secure branch offices, and control the use of cloud-based applications without installing another appliance?

This new way of working demands a modern cybersecurity solution. Cisco Umbrella Secure Internet Gateway (SIG) is a cloud-delivered security service that unifies multiple functions in a single solution that traditionally required multiple on-premises appliances or single function cloud security services. Umbrella empowers organizations to adopt the cloud at their pace and be confident in the security, performance, and reliability of their direct-to-internet connections.

Umbrella SIG features

The following capabilities are integrated seamlessly in a single cloud-delivered service

Flexible security

Secure web gateway

Gain more control and transparency and shield your workers from malware and other dangerous attacks. Umbrella’s secure web gateway (SWG) is a full proxy that logs and inspects your organization’s web traffic to deliver full visibility, URL and application-level controls, and advanced threat protection.

Consistent policies

Cloud access security broker

Expose shadow IT quicker and more efficiently. Umbrella’s cloud access security broker (CASB) detects and reports on cloud applications in use across your environment. Insights can help guide cloud adoption, reduce risk, and block the use of offensive or inappropriate cloud applications. CASB secures user identities, prevents accounts from being compromised, and ensures cloud-based data is safe from threats or loss.

Better performance and user satisfaction everywhere

Cloud-delivered firewall

The Umbrella cloud-delivered firewall provides visibility and control for all traffic across all ports and protocols. This could include mobile apps, peer-to-peer file sharing, collaboration (for example, WebEx or Zoom), or any non-web or non-DNS traffic. It logs activity and blocks unwanted traffic using IP, port, and protocol rules (layer 3/4 firewall), application rules (layer 7 firewall), and intrusion prevention system (IPS) rules.

Flexible security

DNS-layer security

By enforcing security at the DNS-layer, Umbrella uses the internet’s infrastructure to block requests to malicious and unwanted destinations before a connection is even established, stopping threats over any port or protocol. Organizations can provision Umbrella’s DNS-layer security in minutes, typically while improving performance for users.

Consistent policies

Data loss prevention

Umbrella data loss prevention (DLP) analyzes sensitive data in-line to provide visibility and control over sensitive data. DLP does more than retroactively alert you of potential leaks and abnormal file transfers. It blocks the transfer of your sensitive data before it even leaves your organization.

Better performance and user satisfaction everywhere

Remote browser isolation

Users who need to access potentially risky sites or uncategorized destinations for legitimate purposes require an added layer of protection against browser-based threats. Umbrella remote browser isolation (RBI) isolates web traffic from the user device and the threat in an “air gap,” so that users can safely access those sites without the possibility of malware infections.

Protection for the new normal with Cisco Umbrella SIG

You can’t prevent what you can’t see. Cisco Umbrella SIG includes everything you need to prevent ransomware, malware, phishing, and other attacks. Close gaps in visibility, extend control, enforce consistent policies, and relieve strained security resources in an evolving threat landscape. Meet the needs of the new hybrid workplace with Cisco Umbrella SIG.
