Threat Management

Why Every Business Needs Unified Threat Management

Your business’ online environment is a prime target for countless cyberattacks. Hackers want to steal the data of businesses just like yours. Take control of your network security with unified threat management.

How Unified Threat Management Protects Your Business

Advanced threats like viruses, malware, and spyware consistently pose massive threats to your network infrastructure and budget. Sensitive information that’s stolen can crush your business under the weight of steep compliance fines. News of the hack can spread, ruining your reputation as a trustworthy organization.

Take immediate action to protect your business’s network with unified security management. 

The only way to fight back against all of the threats that are out there is to incorporate world-class security solutions, like a Unified Threat Management (UTM) solution. Combine threat detection tools and  cybersecurity expertise to eliminate most threats your business might face. It is a must-have for any company looking to batten down the hatches and mitigate cyber risks.

 

3 Ways Unified Threat Management Solutions Stop Cyberattacks

1. Firewalls and antivirus protection stop threats before they infiltrate your network

The UTM solution uses firewalls and antivirus tools to prevent cyber threats from entering your network in the first place. Here’s how your UTM eliminates any malicious software that does manage to sneak through.

How firewalls and antivirus mitigate cyber risks

The first line of defense for your organization’s network is its firewall. It acts as a bouncer, keeping out threats that attempt to infiltrate the network. A firewall is absolutely essential to maintain proper network security. Antivirus solutions are designed to destroy malicious entities that currently reside within your network. Combining multiple security solutions, like firewalls and antivirus, can go a long way toward keeping your network free of potential threats.

Threat management solutions you can trust

Our antivirus and firewall solutions are continuously updated with the most recent threat definitions so you can keep even recently discovered issues from becoming a bigger problem.

2. Spam blocking technology eliminates time-wasting spam and harmful phishing emails

Your organization receives spam every single day, so your ability to stay productive and secure is under siege.

How spam introduces cybersecurity risks

Spam is a primary mode of transportation for viruses and malware, as well as phishing scams attempt to coerce login credentials or other important information from your employees. To guarantee maximum security for your business, use unified threat management to block spam completely.

Why automatic security threat management is a business necessity

Studies show that there are significant threats at work both inside and outside of your network.

Unified threat management solutions provide:

  • Integrate powerful spam blocking solutions that prevent spam from reaching your inbox in the first place.
  • Reduce the time you have to spend weeding it out of your inbox.
  • Eliminate the chance that your employees put your network at risk due to phishing attacks.

3. Content filtering keeps your employees from viewing questionable web content

Viruses and malware aren’t just contracted from infected emails. Certain websites are designed to spread threats. You can receive them from simply visiting unsafe websites. Threats are often found on the types of websites that your employees shouldn’t be visiting anyway, like those that contain adult content. It’s in the best interest of your company to avoid visiting these sites. They waste time and have disastrous effects on your network security.

Intelligently designed threat management services

A unified threat management solution restricts access to certain sites on a per-user basis. This effectively enables you to block access to specific content for specific users that might be making a habit out of it. One real-world example of comprehensive content filtering is blocking social media for all of your staff, except the marketing department. These employees might need to access Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube for outreach purposes.
