Unified Threat Management (UTM) also known as Next Generation Firewall (NGF) is the evolution of traditional firewalls into an all-inclusive security product or appliance to perform multiple security functions. UTM is the approach that many organizations are adopting to improve visibility and control of their network security while lowering complexity.
Enterprises over time developed a mix of point solutions in response to existing threats that proved to be expensive, complex and hard to manage and maintain. A single UTM appliance simplifies management of a company’s security strategy, with a single device taking the place of multiple layers of hardware and software. From a single management console one can monitor, configure and manage a wide variety of security related applications and infrastructure.
Security capabilities that can be managed include, Firewall, Gateway Anti Virus and Anti Spam, Intrusion Protection, Content Filtering, Bandwidth Management, Application Control and Centralized Reporting. Thus allowing companies to take control of their security and network leading to better management and threat protection.
UTM Solutions will:
- Reduce Complexity
- Provide Simplicity and Easy to manage
- Reduce Technical requirements with a single appliance
- Assist in Regulatory Compliance
