NETGEAR today introduced the NETGEAR ProSecure UTM150 – a Unified Threat Management (UTM) gateway targeting businesses with around 150 users. The new UTM150 was designed to deliver powerful security, reliability and performance in an affordable package for smaller businesses that typically lack “big IT” resources.
The ProSecure UTM can replace an existing firewall or router in less than 30 minutes, NETGEAR says. Administration is performed through a Web-based interface and administrators are able to set granular policies and alerts, check summary statistics and graphical reports, drill down to IP address-level data, and integrate log data with standard network management tools using SNMP. Malware and IPS signature, software, and firmware updates are all handled by the UTM automatically.
NETGEAR’s ProSecure UTM security appliances combine enterprise-strength security technologies from Commtouch, Mailshell™, and Sophos with Stream Scanning Technology to protect businesses against Web, email, and network threats.
“Growing businesses tell us they need ‘smart IT,’ not ‘big IT.’ The UTM150 delivers on this commitment with reliable protection and intelligent controls that previously required expensive, hard-to-configure solutions,” said Jason Leung, Senior Product Marketing Manager at NETGEAR.
“Today, with many UTM vendors offering products that seem similar on the surface, it becomes even more important for customers to focus on how effective these solutions actually are at protecting mid-sized enterprise networks,” said Lawrence Pingree, research director for data center transformation and cloud security at Gartner. “IT decision-makers should also consider speed, capacity, reliability and ease of use when evaluating UTM devices.”
Available immediately worldwide, the ProSecure UTM150 is priced at $1,799 in the United States, which includes one year of web and email protection subscription services, 24/7 technical support and a lifetime warranty.
