CISCO Umbrella Enterprise Security (formerly OpenDNS)

Cisco Umbrella, formerly known as OpenDNS, is an enterprise grade, cloud security platform that specifically protects against web threats that may be missed by firewalls and antivirus solutions.

Owned by one of the most well-known and respected names in the networking and security world, Cisco Umbrella is a web filtering service that provides protection against web threats and can also be used to manage employee productivity by restricting access to websites.

It is a cutting-edge security solution designed to use the internet itself to block threats, before any connection is made. It is comprehensive and protects all devices, wherever and whenever they are connected to the internet.

Cisco Umbrella is just one of the many tools used by Shackleton Technologies to ensure your business is as secure as possible.

Umbrella is designed to protect your business devices by allowing them to connect to the internet, safely and securely, no matter their location. It prevents them from visiting malicious websites, protects from phishing attacks and if an infected link is accessed via email, Cisco Umbrella stops any traffic, before it reaches your network.

The mobility of modern employees has long been a concern for IT professionals and if a mobile device becomes infected when accessing the internet from home, or other external location, the device can easily transport that infection back into the network next time it connects, bypassing many network security measures.

The solution is Umbrella. It is cloud hosted and uses DNS, the very fabric of the internet and by routing all internet traffic via Umbrella, all devices remain protected, regardless of location.
