Cisco Umbrella

Protective and Intelligent Enterprise Threat Management

Enterprise Threat Protection Like No Other.

Cloud-delivered network security and Web filtering that protects any device, anywhere. Umbrella not only blocks malware, botnets and phishing over any port, protocol or app, but also detects and contains advanced attacks before they can cause damage.

In today’s technology driven age, there are countless threats to your data that you must shield against. Umbrella is designed to protect your entire enterprise. The comprehensive service provides real-time content filtering, assuring both your employee’s and your customer’s data is closely guarded.

Undetected and targeted malware are still infecting enterprises, encrypting data throughout networks and offering the encryption key for a price. Umbrella decreases the changes of ransomware encrypting company data because servers are blocked from the requests. You will no longer have to worry about downloading a file with ransomware embedded into it. If the system detects a threat that has been blacklisted, it will be quarantined and eliminated.

We integrated Umbrella as one of our many solutions for clients managing entire organizations. With Alura protecting your company, you have a shield against the horde of threats endangering your enterprise.

Scenario 1

Ransomware Threat Undetected

    1. An infected file/app is allowed to run on the system by an end-user.
    2. The anti-virus software doesn’t detect a problem.
    3. Ransomware unknown to the user remains on the system.
    4. Ransomware is now executing commands on your internal network.
Worst case: Ransomware is now running programmed commands across the internal network, encrypting your business critical files and locking them under an encryption key only known to the ransomware sender. Your business is now being held hostage.
View Results


  • At this point, you are being held hostage for your own business’ data. You have no choice but to pay the ransom cost and hope that the unlock key is sent to you.
  • You are now waiting at the mercy of the ransomware host, causing significant down time to resolve the issue, resulting in more lost productivity on core business activities.
  • In the worst case, additional, unplanned expenses are incurred, including the costs of downtime: reduced productivity, lost opportunities and potentially the closure of your business.

Scenario 2

The Umbrella Threat Monitoring

  1. An infected file/app is allowed to run on the system by an end-user.
  2. The anti-virus software doesn’t detect a problem.
  3. Ransomware attempts to encrypt the files, but is blocked from accessing its remote host to apply for the encryption keys required to lock the internal files.
  4. Alura Support is alerted and conducts rapid remote remediation by cleaning up the threat and resolves the problem.
Alura can provide you comprehensive reports every month and quarter to show threat attempts, content filtering, identified issues, and support optimized IT budgeting.
View Results


  • Your data and system integrity remain intact and you are not penetrated by the outside threat.
  • Your team stays focused on core business activities.
  • Many issues are detected and resolved proactively before you even notice.
  • Downtime is significantly reduced or even eliminated, with no more costly surprises that are out of you or your employee's control.
Threat Protection

Threat Protection

Umbrella has a comprehensive database of both the oldest and newest threats. Nowadays, there is a multitude of threats online that you should be concerned about, whether you choose to pursue Managed IT Services or not.

More Info

Aside from the malware and viruses that many have already familiarized themselves with, there are other obstacles that appear covertly. Viruses, malware and spyware guised as e=mails from an associate, or a new toolbar for your browser. These malicious programs can deny service to your website, or worse, add you to a botnet, and use your machine to add to the chaos.

One of the newest threats being encountered by data-driven businesses and enterprises is ransomware. Ransomware is a new style of virus that encrypts data throughout entire networks, and then offers up the encryption key, for a price. Users are forced to pay the decryption cost or risk potentially losing their data.

Ransomware Protection

Ransomware Protection

One of the newest threats around is the Cryptolocker virus. Cryptolocker, as most ransomwares do, invades the infected computer and all associated drives it can get into, encrypting files and displaying a message informing the user that their information has been encrypted and they need to pay for a decryption code to recover their data.

More Info

Cryptolocker and other ransomwares are on the rise in the digital world. Even now, CryptoLocker 2.0 is said to be in the budding stages of infection. For new clientele currently suffering from ransomware, Alura Business Solutions has the development experience to successfully decrypt data and provide other solutions.

Through the Umbrella Package, our customers have the best predictive protection against downloading a file with ransomware embedded into it—our state-of-the-art detection and monitoring systems pick up these malicious files and then quarantine them, in order to comprehensively discern better solutions for the issue.

We also make sure to completely eliminate threats once they have been safely quarantined from an affected machine.


Reduced Remediation Time

Alura's network administrators use the latest and greatest software to protect customers from both prevalent and emergent malware, ransomware and spyware.

Using our up-to-date databases combined with our state-of-the-art data centers and computers, we quickly analyze and respond to problems in your network. We will notify you of threats, whenever they occur and then provide the necessary solutions to overcome them.

Close Monitoring Throughout Your System

Umbrella protects your entire enterprise both at home and around the world. Your information and devices are protected, when your customers engage with your business, and when employees work offsite and save sensitive information to their browser driven devices and laptops.

More Info

Don’t you want to be assured that all of you and your customers’ information is closely guarded? With all the recent businesses suffering from payment and login information being compromised, don’t add yourself to the growing list. Umbrella also offers comprehensive enterprise-wide content filtering and analysis. This is offered to our clients in addition to Alura's military grade encryption services. With these services, management and owners alike can monitor their organization’s activity. Some of the monitoring features include being able to block certain websites, the capability to track where internet traffic in your organization is going, and the ability to create “custom policies”. These policies will automatically manage your organization by your specifications, and offer you up-to-date alerts whenever and however you need them.

When Threats Do Happen

As with ransomware, Umbrella has the capacity to analyze current threats, providing solutions for devices that have other spyware and malware installed onto them. Some malware and spyware can be safely removed without entirely compromising the device. Other software can only be removed by reformatting the entire system—a last resort scenario.

More Info

When other threats do compromise devices, our comprehensive cloud-based storage systems regularly backup the hard drives of your devices, so that you can quickly and reliably recover data from a compromised device from anytime, anywhere while simultaneously screening out the threat that originally affected the device.
