Description: The umbrella lightsaber was a lightsaber shaped like an umbrella. It was held by the central pole, and eight smaller lightsabers were attached to the top. These smaller lightsabers extended outward when the device was activated. The lightsaber's shaft also contained a more typical lightsaber within that could be detached. A female human Sith Bandit Leader used the umbrella lightsaber in combat. The umbrella lightsaber was destroyed in a duel with Ronin.

The Lightsaber parasol is not itself a lightsaber, it is a Lightsaber auxiliary. It does not generate its own blades but redirects and splits the inserted lightsaber's blade. Based on this info I am guessing the Farkiller of Oo'ob the Apostate or the Lightsaber Rifle would be the Jedi versions of such technology.
According to Wookieepedia (which I use as the main source for my stats).
"The lightsaber parasol was a Sith lightsaber created by Kouru, a female Sith who led a bandit group. It functioned as a singled-bladed lightsaber when she used only the lightsaber hilt. With its attached parasol auxiliary, it produced multiple red plasma blades in a manner that resembled a parasol, particularly when she spun it to create a shield."
So it is a lightsaber, and it is an auxiliary. So you're right, but so is the above :)
