Unified Threat Management Guide for Managers

Cover
Vendors are talking about unified threat management, but is it right for you? We'll dissect the five arguments in favor of UTM.


It makes sense in theory: Combining security functionality--such as antivirus, intrusion detection and firewall--into one appliance gives infosecurity professionals a security Swiss Army knife of sorts.

There are five main arguments in favor of UTM: It provides for consolidation, thereby reducing costs; it improves performance; it reduces complexity; it simplifies management; and it increases flexibility.
