In this episode of the Meraki Mondays show, Dan Stewart, Business Transformation Center (BTC) engineer, and Bobby Young, technology consultant, Ingram Micro, discuss different licensing options for Meraki wireless APs, including a new Advanced option called “Umbrella Predefined.”
Umbrella adds DNS protection, which is a user’s or device’s first step in connecting to the internet, preceding file execution and IP connection.
The Umbrella Embedded licensing option is available to users running MR firmware version 26.x or later and can be applied to newly purchased Advanced licenses or as an upgrade from Enterprise License to Advanced.
The episode also highlights the seven predefined Umbrella policies, which consist of different combinations of security settings and content filtering. It also covers Meraki MR firewall and traffic shaping capabilities, such as Layer 2 LAN isolation, and Layer 3 and Layer 7 firewall rules.
