New AnyConnect Integration Makes Off-Network Protection Easier

Umbrella now integrates with AnyConnect so you can get simple, effective security for roaming devices with little more than a configuration change. By updating AnyConnect you can get Umbrella’s protection with no additional agents, no end-user action, no always-on VPN, no performance sacrifice—and at no additional cost.

If you already have the Umbrella Roaming Client deployed, switching is as easy as upgrading to AnyConnect 4.3 MR1 with the Umbrella Roaming Security module enabled. It will automatically convert your Roaming Client with no additional steps!

Going Beyond Domain and IP Blocking

More granular protection for attacks that use malicious files now available in Umbrella!

We’ve enhanced our intelligent proxy, which routes risky domains for deeper inspection, to now include file inspection. If we receive a request for a file that matches our 150+ file types – for example .PDF, .EXE and more – we check the hash against info provided by a partner anti-virus (AV) engine and Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) to determine to block or allow. Available in Umbrella Insights and Platform packages.

Add Malicious URLs to Umbrella for Easier, Automated Blocking

Our intelligent proxy just keeps getting smarter! Similar to our file inspection capability, custom URL blocking is another new enhancement to our cloud-based proxy.

We know you have intel on the latest threats and attacks like malicious URL feeds from other products, industry groups, and more. With Umbrella’s custom URL blocking, taking action on this info is easier and automated. Add a single URL or upload a list of URLs to a block list, and automatically prevent your users from accessing these sites when on and off the network. Available in Umbrella Insights and Platform packages.
