What is Cisco Umbrella

Cisco Umbrella is a cloud-delivered firewall that functions at the DNS layer and provides visibility and control for internet traffic across all ports and protocols.

Why Should You Use the Cisco Umbrella Connector?

The Cisco Umbrella connector provides visibility into the assets in your environment. You can use this visibility to:

  • ensure assets are managed per your security policies

  • find vulnerabilities quickly and remediate

How Does This Connector Work?

Lucidum executes read-only requests to the Cisco Umbrella REST API and ingests only meta-data about Cisco Umbrella assets. Lucidum does not retrieve any data stored on your assets.
