Umbrella is purely cloud-managed and doesn't have anything other than very tangential tie-in with Firepower Management Center. That can be seen as both a good and bad thing. By decoupling it can move at it's own (fast) pace as far as evolving in response to advanced threats. On the other hand it is a separate system / console to operate and configure.

In many ways its URL filtering functionality is superior to that offered with Firepower. It is very simple to deploy while being very powerful. It can also protect your remote and roaming clients.
