In the stores of tomorrow, phones will replace cashiers. In the fields of tomorrow, connected crops will solve global food challenges. In the factories of tomorrow, robots will work together autonomously.

Tomorrow is closer than you think. These examples aren’t from the distant future, in some cases, these activities are reality. Delivering these innovations and new experiences requires a strong digital foundation. That means connecting people, processes, and things.

Today, we’re introducing Cisco Umbrella Wireless LAN (WLAN), a new security service  that combines the power of the network with advanced cloud security—allowing you to securely thrive in the era of digital transformation.

What does Umbrella WLAN do for you?

According to Cisco VNI, 49% of global traffic in 2020 will be Wi-Fi based.  For a digital organization, digital success is realized or lost at the first line of defense for connecting things and data.

That means it’s all about granularity for the Wi-Fi network and visibility—as in identifying the internet threats and their evolution.  Umbrella WLAN provides highly detailed enforcement and reporting at the SSID, client location, client user role, and WLC level. It’s not a cookie-cutter solution, you can tailor acceptable use policies at a level that makes sense for your business.

How does it work?

Umbrella WLAN enforces security at the Domain Name System (DNS) layer, which means you can block requests to malicious domains and IPs before a connection is ever made.

The huge volume of DNS requests from millions of users around the world—that’s over 100+ billion requests per day—that Cisco resolves provides a very diverse data set. Umbrella WLAN applies statistical models to that data set which allows Cisco to identify where current and future attacks are staged on the iInternet.

Whether you’re seeking to secure the  internet at one hotspot or several thousand, Umbrella WLAN can be deployed quickly and managed easily through a centralized web-based dashboard. The ability to map business functions to policies is easy and intuitive, enabling the network to evolve rapidly to changing business needs. Security is enforced without added latency so the end user experience is not impacted.

Join us on March 7, 2017 for an Enterprise Networks Customer Connection briefing on Cisco Umbrella WLAN - Combining the power of the network with advanced security.  (Registration for the Enterprise Networks Customer Connection Program is required.  Registration is quick and easy to complete)

During the briefing we'll discuss Cisco Umbrella WLAN, the latest addition to the EN portfolio bringing Cisco Umbrella integration to the Cisco Wireless Lan Controller portfolio. With the ability to closely align policies (e.g. appropriate usage) with business functions, and granular enforcement and reporting aligned with SSID, AP and WLC, the overall solution brings unique cisco value to the market place.

With simple and intuitive management, Cisco Umbrella WLAN can be deployed in minutes and leverage the extensive internet visibility from a security perspective to protect the end users and enterprise.  Umbrella WLAN lets you simply secure your wireless environment by providing a first line of defense for all your users.
