What Is a Unified Threat Management Solution?

Unified threat management (UTM) is an emerging trend in the network security market. UTM appliances have evolved from traditional firewall/VPN products into a solution with many additional capabilities, including:

  • Spam blocking
  • Gateway antivirus
  • Spyware prevention
  • Intrusion prevention
  • URL filtering

These are functions that previously had been handled by multiple systems. UTM solutions also provide integrated management, monitoring, and logging capabilities to streamline deployment and maintenance. All of our WatchGuard® XTM security appliances combine these capabilities for a superior UTM solution.
