Cisco Secure Connect - Internet Access Policies


For internet access, Cisco Secure Connect has four main policy categories: DNS, Firewall, Web, and Data Loss Prevention (DLP). This allows you to apply granular access control while maximizing performance. If you are unfamiliar with service components in the Secure Connection solution, please review the Secure Internet Access section of the solution overview in the Secure Connect Solution Overview.

Secure Connect has implemented two things to help you get started with Internet Access Policies.

  1. There are pre-defined DNS, Firewall, and Web Policies. These default policies ensure that all identities within your organization receive a minimum level of protection. They apply to all identities and cannot be deleted. You can, however, configure them to meet your organization's unique requirements. If you have created additional policies, the default policies will be applied when no other policy matches the identity.
  2. If you are using Meraki MX appliances, policies from the MX can be imported into Secure Connect to centralize policy management.

It is important to plan and test your policies before implementing them across your organization. We recommend that you read through the policy sections of our documentation in full. Additional overview information on policies can be found in the Cisco Umbrella documentation.
