What’s simple, effective, and protects your distributed network in minutes? A new powerful integration between Cisco SD-WAN and Cisco Umbrella. With just a few clicks, it’s easier than ever to deploy Umbrella across your SD-WAN fabric to hundreds of devices. You’ll instantly gain web and DNS-layer protection against threats such as malware, ransomware, and C2 callbacks. For additional granularity and control, administrators can set policies and view reports on a per-VPN basis.

Together, Cisco SD-WAN and Umbrella enable you to secure your users wherever they access the internet, while providing a streamlined user experience and simplifying management. You can learn more about how Cisco is reinventing branch connectivity with SD-WAN Security here.

If complex networks, inconsistent user experience, and added risk have you feeling overwhelmed, it’s time to simplify with 3 easy steps:

Step 1 – Link accounts

In your Umbrella dashboard, copy your network API key and then input it into the Cisco SD-WAN vManage dashboard.

Step 2 – Apply Umbrella policies 

In the vManage dashboard, assign Umbrella DNS redirect policies on a per-VPN basis or to all VPNs.

Step 3 – Create Umbrella security policies

If you’re new to Umbrella, we recommend you create policies for your organization. The Umbrella policy wizard in the Umbrella dashboard walks you through each step.
