Unified Threat Management(UTM) Definition

Unified threat management is a method of security management provided through a single management console which permits administrators to manage and monitor numerous security-related applications and infrastructure component. UTM comprises of multiple functions such as anti-virus, content filtering, web filtering and anti-spam. Companies face challenges like phishing and spam attacks, Trojan, spyware-infected files and so on. Using multiple devices to face these multiple challenges will be difficult when the resources and budget are limited and it adds to the complexity of managing all of these under one umbrella. UTM is a single system that offers a solution to all these issues in a less budget and easy-to-use manner.

UTM is a single system that aids to secure networks from malware, viruses or malicious attachments through the process of scanning the incoming data with the help of Deep Packet Inspection. It prevents the attacks before they enter the network by examining the packet headers. With the function of web filtering, UTM prevents the access to unnecessary websites. Additionally, UTM has the ability to automatically undergo updation with the latest advancements and new features, therefore it requires only a minimum manual intervention after the initial set-up. These systems are normally purchased as a network appliance or a cloud service which strengthens the overall security of the company. The major advantage of this system is that it aids in the reduction of complexity, on the other hand the major disadvantage is that the appliance has the probability to become a single point of failure (SPOF).
