Unified threat management (UTM) consolidates multiple security and networking functions all on one appliance to protect small and medium businesses while simplifying their infrastructure. This allows business leaders to spend more time and resources on revenue growth and profitability. UTM also enables them to fully utilize a mobile workforce, cloud services, and other emerging technologies for a competitive advantage. At the same time, it reduces the risks posed by ransomware, phishing, and other evolving cyber security threats.Traditionally, unified threat management combined network security, email security, and web security together in a single solution. More recently, it included wired and wireless networking to its baseline set of capabilities. Today, leading UTM solutions have also added integrated endpoint, sandboxing, and other security functions along with additional networking extensions and cloud-based management.
