Webinar: Cloudy with a Chance of Ransomware

June 27, 2019



Date: Thursday, June 27, 2019
Time: 1:00 — 1:45 PM EST

70% of all security breaches start on endpoint devices. That makes stopping malware before it reaches your network or endpoints that much more important.

Cisco Umbrella leverages DNS, providing visibility and enforcement for internet-based threats, whether users are on or off your network, wherever they go. As your secure internet gateway, Umbrella gives you control over all the devices on your network through a cloud security platform. By using statistical models and 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, you get complete visibility across all locations and users. Umbrella is the simplest security product to deploy and delivers powerful, effective protection. Identify and investigate threats in real-time, faster than anyone else.

Join NetCraftsmen and Nick Kelly in our upcoming webinar for an in-depth overview on how to deploy Cisco Umbrella in minutes and utilize the threat intelligence and context to block threats before they become attacks. You will learn how Umbrella can:

  • Stop threats before they reach your network and endpoints
  • Protect internet access across all users and locations without added latency
  • Reduce security alerts and expose Shadow IT
