UTM Solution = Revenue Generator For Security Integrator
By Cindy Dubin, Business Solutions magazine.
UTM (unified threat management) solutions seek to combine essential and common security functions such as firewall/virtual private network (VPN), intrusion prevention system (IPS), antispam, antivirus, content filtering, data loss protection (DLP), and vulnerability management capabilities. "For years, we watched the security market evolve, and now multiple products on a single application is what customers want to take advantage of today," says Lisa Carter, president of SpartanTec, Inc., a boutique security solutions provider. "Financially, UTM makes more sense than a point solution."
