A match made in the cloud.

Secure and manage your network, all in one place, with Meraki MR & Umbrella.

 

As the industry’s first Secure Internet Gateway in the cloud, Cisco Umbrella provides the first line of defense against threats on the internet. Because Umbrella is delivered from the cloud, it is the easiest way to protect all of your users in minutes.

 

 

 

 
 

Your users connect from many locations and devices. They no longer need the VPN to get work done — they use cloud services. What if you had a fast, easy way to protect users anywhere they access the internet?

 
 

Threats continue to increase in sophistication but attackers often reuse the same infrastructure in multiple attacks — leaving cyber fingerprints. What if you could use those fingerprints to uncover attacks before they launch?

Enterprise-class performance, managed from the cloud for faster deployment, simplified administration, and richer visibility

The Cisco Meraki wireless solution includes a complete, robust feature set right out of the box. No additional purchase required.

 

 

High Efficiency Wireless

Cisco Meraki access points are built from the highest grade components and carefully optimized for a seamless user experience. The outcome: faster connections, greater user capacity, more coverage, and fewer support calls.

Dedicated Security Radio

In addition to the high-power 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz client-service radios, most Meraki APs also include a dedicated security radio that:

  • Continuously scans and protects against security threats
  • Senses the RF environment and adapts to interference
  • Automatically configures RF settings to maximize performance

Built for Performance

Enterprise-class Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) access points feature high power radios and enhanced receive sensitivity. Technologies like OFDMA, MIMO, and integrated beamforming maximize capacity without sacrificing range.

  • Up to 8 transmit and 8 receive antennas for enhanced performance and better coverage
  • Multigigabit Ethernet for up to 5 Gbps over a single existing cable
  • Custom RF design supports high client density environments

 

Unmatched Visibility

Meraki access points provide deep network insight enabling smarter network management.

The Cisco Meraki dashboard gives visibility into the network users, their devices, and their applications. Armed with rich analytics, administrators can quickly create access control and application usage policies, optimizing both the end-user experience and network security.
