In this article, we are going to talk about Cisco Umbrella Initial Setup.
- The continuity of IT is the basis of today’s business environment. Almost every single decision made by business is either based on an IT data or done using the IT platform. And so, the security, availability, visibility, and performance of the IT sector are the key foundation of a solid business and service environment.
-Cisco umbrella comes to secure your sensitive data within more than 20x data centers -WW- around the world and tied with a cisco Talos operation center team.
-I have known about this configuration for a while but I will admit that I didn't really try to learn it until recently, for that I going to share with you what I learned.
- First step add the public IP address of the enterprise on the Cisco umbrella
Enter Deployment --->Core Identities--->Network --->Add ---> write name of the network --->Public Ip ---> choose mask---> save .
NOTE: The network connection may be a single public IP address (dynamic) so you need to checkmark this option [ This network has a dynamic IP address]
- Add a network device:
Cisco 4000 Series and 1100 Series ISR acts as a DNS forwarder on the network, forwards the DNS queries to the Cisco Umbrella cloud. this feature available on the Cisco IOS 16.3 and later.
The Cisco Umbrella Integration feature provides a cloud-based security service by inspecting the DNS query that is sent to the DNS server through ISRs. When a host initiates the DNS query, the Cisco Umbrella Connector in ISR inspects the DNS query. If the DNS query is for a local domain, it forwards the query without changing the DNS packet to the DNS server in the enterprise network. If it is for an external domain, it adds an Extended DNS (EDNS) record to the query and sends it to Cisco Umbrella Resolver
