Security, Off the Beaten Path

Cisco Umbrella and AMP for Endpoints extend protection anywhere users go.

Protecting endpoints everywhere

How can you strengthen your defenses? Respond where today’s attacks occur.


Cisco AMP for Endpoints and Umbrella

Gain the visibility, context and control needed to prevent, detect and respond to attacks targeting endpoints.


Protecting endpoints, better together

Cisco AMP for Endpoints and Cisco Umbrella work in harmony to provide the visibility, context, and control needed to prevent, detect, and respond to attacks targeting endpoints, before damage can be done.

A cloud-delivered service, Umbrella provides the first line of defense against threats on the Internet, giving organizations visibility to protect users across all network devices, office locations, and beyond. With Umbrella, customers can stop malware infections earlier, identify already infected devices faster, and prevent data exfiltration.

AMP for Endpoints is a cloud-managed, next generation endpoint security solution that not only prevents cyber attacks, but also rapidly detects, contains, and remediates malicious files if they evade defenses and infiltrate endpoint— before damage can be done.

Hoot Hoot. Security that won’t sleep

When users and endpoints are off-network, antivirus is often the only protection available. Signature detection and preventative measures are no match for today’s advanced threats. You need to see an attack coming, not wait to respond to it after it breaks through your perimeter and endpoints. You need always-on security that works everywhere your users go, both on and off the corporate network.

Problems we solve

Blind to malware, uh-oh

Sensitive data and applications have moved beyond the firewall. Perimeter security appliances and VPNs aren’t enough to protect your devices and data. And now you have more locations and more devices to protect than ever before. The high cost of backhauling traffic to corporate has led to an increase in more direct-to-internet connections for branch and remote offices. As a result, users are more likely to get infected with malware, creating more gaps in visibility and coverage for IT security professionals.

Complementary layers

Working at different yet complementary layers, Umbrella prevents connections to malicious destinations and command & control callbacks at the DNS and IP layers while AMP works at the file level to prevent the initial malware execution and track file behavior over time. Together these solutions help organizations to protect against blended threats that use both email and web, and other more sophisticated techniques.
