What is Unified threat Management?
Unified threat management (UTM) provides multiple security features and services in a single device or service on the network, protecting users from security threats in a simplified way. UTM includes functions such as anti-virus, anti-spam, content filtering, and web filtering.
How Does UTM Protect Users and Networks?
IT teams are constantly faced with the challenge of protecting their companies’ productivity and digital assets against evolving and sophisticated threats, including spam and phishing attacks, viruses, Trojans and spyware infected files, unapproved website access, and unapproved content. They have to address these challenges with limited budgets and resources. Having multiple separate devices, each designed to perform a specialized function such as spam filtering, web content filtering, or antivirus protection does not make this task easier. Rather, it adds to the cost and complexity of managing multiple boxes and multiple operating systems.
