Unified Threat Management

Also known as UTM. Refers to an integrated security solution – usually an appliance – that combines multiple security features at a single point on a network. UTM solutions typically bring together antivirus, firewall, and intrusion prevention/detection in one platform. Other features may include data loss prevention, deep packet inspection, VPN, and Web proxy and content filtering. UTM can provide several benefits over point solutions, including reduced costs and simplified installation and management.
