Cisco Umbrella Shortcomings

CCisco Umbrella is a decent cybersecurity solution. However, its main drawback lies in its inferior domain categorisation system compared to DNSSense’s.

While Cisco relies on a single database to collect threat analytics, DNSSense’s AI engine has the added advantage of being fed with a continuous stream of data from nearly 400 Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) services, guaranteeing an astonishing success rate.

Cisco incorporates a signature-based method into its Intrusion Prevention System (IPS).While this is a well-established technique for identifying well-known threats, it is ineffective against more sophisticated attacks such as ultra-slow DNS tunnelling and newly surfaced exploits.
