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.
