Reviews from Real Users
Cisco Umbrella stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Some of the major ones are its DNS-based protection, ability to protect users no matter where they are located, stability, and high performance.
Daniel B., a network specialist at Syswind Kft, writes, “We primarily use the solution as cloud security for our branches. It protects us from direct internet outbreaks. It makes for good flexibility. The solution is very easy to manage. We found the initial setup, for example, to be quite simple. Efficient protection on the DNS level and even higher. The sandboxing feature analyses and handles the complicated security risks.”
Victor M., SOC & Security Services Director at BEST, notes, “It provides security for the remote workers and it helps to improve enterprise security in a very easy way. We mainly enjoy web software protection capabilities. It prevents the end-users from getting into bad sites or sites that potentially could have malware or could be phishing. It helps end-users avoid the wrong sites. The solution works very smoothly. The user interface is good.”
We are a cloud-based, AI-driven, content filtering and threat protection service. Our solution can be deployed on your network in minutes, with no software necessary. DNS-Based Content Filtering and Threat Protection.
The scale, frequency and sophistication of volumetric DNS attacks are increasing rapidly, being amplified by the fast-growing deployments of unsecured IoT devices, mobility and BYOD. DNS service has become one of the most targeted application-layers by hackers, and specifically for layer 7 DDoS attacks.
While most organizations are aware of DDoS attack security risks, the majority of them have not deployed modern DNS DDoS protection solutions and are still using traditional enterprise network security solutions such as firewalls, which are not designed for the DNS protocol.
New DDoS mitigation techniques must be deployed to tackle these threats. Only purpose-built DNS protection solution offering both high performance and advanced analytics can efficiently and proactively strengthen business continuity, data confidentiality and user experience to the level your company deserves.
