Unique attractions of UTM

Leave a comment

Enterprises have been fed a constant diet of increasingly inadequate security technologies to solve their security problems. With increasing threats clearly looming over their networks and their business, they don’t want another box to solve their problems. Their needs are about leverage, simplicity and integrated management capabilities. Standalone solutions such as AV, AS, Firewall fail to protect against such threats. Enterprises are not only under pressure from cybercrime and insider abuse, but are facing increasing and evolving compliance demands – highlighting the importance of establishing effective and measurable security.

Reduced complexity, through Single security solution, Single Vendor, avoidance of multiple software installation and maintenance, Plug & Play architecture, Web-based GUI for easy management are some of the major reasons why many organizations, both big and small are fast switching to smart, UTM solutions. This, coupled with Zero-hour protection without comprising on performance translates into high ROI for customers who deploy UTMs.

For enterprises with remote networks  or distantly located offices, UTMs are the only means to provide centralized security with complete control over their globally distributed networks. Enterprises, thus get zero-hour protection at branch offices against security attacks despite the lack of technical resources at these locations

Why UTM for Network Security ?

In the past, securing a network requires multiple solutions. You need separate firewalls, anti-viruses, content filtering, spam filtering, VPN protection, anti-spyware, anti-penetration tools, and other security systems. Today, your network can take advantage of UTM(Unified Threat Management) appliance or unified threat management appliance.
This tool is an all in one security solutionthat integrates everything you need to protect your network. In fact, even if you have a WiFi network, a UTM system will have the capability for all round security protection and wireless penetration testing through WEP cracking simulations.

There is no doubt also that a unified threat management system is also a cost effective solution for network security. That is because you will eliminate the need to upgrade different security appliances of different vendors. You will only deal now with a single provider which will significantly cut the cost for system upgrades. Capability trainings of network administrators will be simpler also. With single user interface and a unified system, you need not spend for multiple training programs. This means more savings for your company and simpler administration processes for your network security personnel.
