Unified threat management solutions combine multiple security functions into a single piece of hardware. In this video, you will learn the purpose of unified threat management (UTM) devices including their URL filtering, content inspection, malware inspection, and spam filtering functionality.
- [Instructor] We've talked about a lot of different security devices in this course. And one of the major issues associated with them is that purchasing all of these devices can be very expensive. Particularly for a small, or a mid-sized organization. Inified threat management, or UTM solutions, try to solve this problem by combining many different security functions on a single device. UTM products start by performing the basic functions of a firewall, and router.
Protecting the network against many attacks. Blocking unsolicited traffic. And routing traffic to and from the Internet. They then add some of the security features we've discussed in this course. Including VPN connectivity, intrusion detection, and intrusion prevention. UTM products also often include other features useful to small businesses that might not be found in Enterprise security devices. For example, they often perform both URL filtering to block unwanted websites and content inspection to remove malicious web content returned by otherwise trusted servers.
UTM products also often contain malware inspection features, allowing them to act as antivirus software for networks and web traffic. If you host your own email server a UTM appliance is often able to perform malware inspection on both the content of messages and their attachments as well as spam filtering to remove unwanted messages before they reach your email server. UTMs aren't for everyone. Large organizations need the performance and features of dedicated security appliances.
UTMs are, however, very useful solutions for organizations that would not otherwise be able to afford sophisticated security devices.
