Organizations in every industry are challenged to secure their network systems and data. UTM products consolidate multiple security technologies such as next generation firewall, intrusion prevention, anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-spam, and content filtering into a single network device. This converged product provides businesses with lower total cost of ownership compared to the large investment required to deploy multiple point products from specialized vendors. This also provides centralized management and deeper integration between complementary security technologies. UTM vendors are challenged to remain innovative as customers seek to adopt new technologies such as cloud computing, virtualization, and mobile devices.
