Unified Threat Management (UTM)

Definition - What does Unified Threat Management (UTM) mean?

Unified threat management (UTM) refers to a specific kind of IT product that combines several key elements of network security to offer a comprehensive security package to buyers. A unified threat management solution involves combining the utility of a firewall with other guards against unauthorized network traffic along with various filters and network maintenance tools, such as anti-virus programs.

Techopedia explains Unified Threat Management (UTM)

The emergence of unified threat management is a relatively new phenomenon, because the various aspects that make up these products used to be sold separately. However, by selecting a UTM solution, businesses and organization can deal with just one vendor, which may be more efficient. Unified threat management solutions may also promote easier installation and updates for security systems, although others contend that a single point of access and security can be a liability in some cases.
