Standard Network Security Solutions vs. UTM

Looking to upgrade your business' network security? Currently, you might be using a standard point-of-service security solution, which are highly difficult to institute, update, and manage. In fact, you might be looking for a new security solution just to reduce your overhead costs. An easy way to solve all of your security problems is to implement Unified Threat Management (UTM).

A UTM solution from Sagacent combines all the basic IT security measures into one single device. With this solution, your business’ network security can be managed easily, since the application, control, and maintenance of your network’s content are all in a centralized location. The days of instituting security updates to all of your workstations will be a thing of the past. The UTM can handle this for you.

UTM Will Give You Full Content Control

A UTM solution will also allow you to prevent your employees from wasting time on the internet. You'll have the power to block any sites that focus on the following:

  • job searches
  • social media
  • microblogging
  • video streaming
  • distasteful content such as adult-oriented websites and file sharing sites
  • any other site that can sap productivity

Studies show that the average employee wastes around two hours of company time per day on personal internet use. Prevent workforce inefficiencies today!

How Does UTM Prevent Security Threats?

One of the reasons why intrusions happen is because security software is out of date. Security companies do a good job of keeping pace with hackers, but if you don’t promptly apply applicable patches, you leave your entire IT infrastructure at risk. With a UTM solution from Sagacent, your security will be updated from one centralized location, eliminating the possibility of forgetting to update all your devices.
