Talking to customers, this is oftentimes the point when it comes to "but F..tinet does have DNS protection!".
Well, yes Mr. customer. Sort of...but not even halfway comparable to what Umbrella provides you with. You will never ever get the visibility and breadth on an on-box solution as compared as to what a cloud service operating at a global scale will bring.
@KarstenIThank you. We do have MX devices with the Advanced security license. I'm looking for what features are offered with that license in terms of DNS protection in order to make a decision whether we need to get Cisco Umbrella or not.
What are the overlapping features that the MX offers with the Advanced Security license?
Is there information on what features the Advanced Security license provides?
I'd probably need to do a comparison between the Advanced Security license and what Cisco Umbrella offers.
@CptnCrnchThat's very good to know that Cisco Umbrella provides a lot more.
Very useful information when persuading my upper management to not Frankenstein the stack.
@Shadius : See the reviews for all the vendors in the space
First of all, MX and Umbrella embrace each other to provide in-depth security going much further as MX alone would be able to do.
In a nutshell, if you're intersted in what Umbrella will provide you with on the DNS alone, take a look at The Leader in DNS Security for your Business - Cisco Umbrella
More general information about Umbrellas other advantages will be shown on https://umbrella.cisco.com/products/cloud-security-service including its integration in Cisco's SASE vision.
Hi @Shadius , you can trial Umbrella free for 14 days or longer so worth investigating
@Shadius The overlap is more or less the URL-Filtering that can be done both on the MX and in Umbrella. But Umbrella is such a great product that really should be considered for advanced security.
We use a different DNS filter solution to handle some things at the dns level. Then use URL and category filtering as the second layer. When you see threats emerge you can block them at DNS before they ever get to the Meraki Content filter. Umbrella is one option for DNS filtering - but there are others on the market. It depends on how much time, money and complexity you want in your environment. If you are looking to keep things under one roof, then look at Umbrella.
