The mention of phishing, spyware, trojans, viruses, or any other malware often strikes fear into any technology user – and for good reason. The threats are worse than ever, with criminals using advanced and convincing techniques to trick people into giving up password information, making online payments or giving hackers full control of their workstation to do as they please.
For many years installing anti-virus software was the first line of defence again these threats, but in recent times this has proved to be insufficient, so a more advanced or multi-pronged solution is needed.
WebAngel, powered by Cisco Umbrella, is the solution. It uses the internet’s infrastructure to block malicious destinations before a connection to an infected or compromised system is ever established. By delivering security from the cloud, not only do you save money, but we also provide more effective security. Using DNS to stop threats over all ports and protocols — even direct-to-IP connections, WebAngel stops malware before it reaches your endpoints or network.
Instead of proxying all web traffic, WebAngel routes requests, that might be for a risky domain, for deeper URL and file inspection. Effectively protect without delay or performance impact. Even if devices become infected in other ways, Umbrella prevents connections to attackers’ servers, stopping data ex-filtration and execution of ransomware.
WebAngel learns from internet activity to automatically identify attacker infrastructure staged for current and emergent threats. The system captures and understands relationships between malware, domains, IPs, and networks across the internet.
The WebAngel system is the simplest security you’ll ever deploy. There is no hardware to install or software to manually update, and the browser-based interface provides quick setup and ongoing management.
