Network Security – Cisco Umbrella

We believe prevention is better than cure, and when this relates to the security of your network it has never been truer. That’s why Performance Networks has partnered with Cisco Umbrella.

Cisco Umbrella is a cloud security platform. It provides the first line of defense against threats on the internet – and more importantly, wherever users go. No longer do workers use internal systems, but mobile phones or laptops outside of your traditional network. Cisco Umbrella monitors all traffic both on the network and off it. It analyses everything for threats, ransomware, untrusted links, phishing and malware, meaning even your remote workers stayed protected, no matter where they are.

By learning from internet activity patterns, Umbrella automatically uncovers current and emerging threats. And because it’s built into the foundation of the internet and delivered from the cloud, it’s the simplest security product to deploy. What’s more, it delivers powerful, effective protection.

We see Cisco Umbrella as a virtual guardian angel. It ensures protection of your complete on and offsite network. The service does not affect performance, it’s fast and easy to deploy, and it stops threats before they even reach your firewall or remote users machines.

As experts in providing secure corporate and public WiFi and fixed networks, we enable increasing levels of ‘bring your own device’ (BYOD) and remote working every day. So we have a true understating of the need to protect your workforce wherever they are, as unfortunately not all networks are built to be as robust as ours.

By working at DNS level and analyzing all traffic, nothing can hide. Rogue IPs and destinations are blocked instantly, meaning that curious click on the suspect email, or slightly strange redirect from the familiar-looking website, is caught and blocked before it leaves the safety of your new global security perimeter.
