Unified threat management, commonly abbreviated as UTM, is an information security term that refers to a single security solution, and usually a single security appliance, that provides multiple security functions at a single point on the network. A UTM appliance will usually include functions such as: antivirus, anti-spyware, anti-spam, network firewalling, intrusion detection and prevention, content filtering and leak prevention. Some units also provide services such as remote routing, network address translation (NAT), and virtual private network (VPN) support. The allure of the solution is based on simplicity, so organizations that may have had individual vendors or appliances for each separate security task can now have them all under one vendor umbrella, supported by one IT team or segment, and run through one console.
