New Book for Help on Future-Proofing Network Security

Sunday, February 08, 2015

WatchGuard Technologies and Frost & Sullivan have released a new eBook titled, "Fulfilling the Promise of Unified Threat Management (UTM): Unlocking Full UTM-Enabled Network Protection".

Combatting enterprise-grade threats, without the resources to deploy enterprise-grade solutions, is a key security challenge for today's midsize businesses. It often results in a piecemeal approach to network security and a complex, disjointed strategy that leaves significant gaps in protection. To help overcome these challenges, WatchGuard Technologies and Frost & Sullivan have released a new eBook titled, "Fulfilling the Promise of Unified Threat Management (UTM): Unlocking Full UTM-Enabled Network Protection," which dives into UTM adoption fears and offers three simple steps that can help organizations future-proof their UTM security strategy.

"While businesses claim that security considerations drive network planning, the reality is that any security technology that hampers network performance is simply switched off," said Chris Rodriguez, senior industry analyst for network security at Frost & Sullivan and author of the executive brief that the eBook is based on. "With network and security demands rising at a meteoric rate, UTM platforms are under even more pressure to quickly inspect and secure traffic without impacting network performance. Traditionally these solutions have struggled to deliver on the performance promise, but new advances from vendors like WatchGuard deliver total system performance, meaning organizations can future-proof their UTM security strategy."

With network performance no longer limiting the UTM value proposition, organizations can future-proof their UTM strategy with three primary steps:

  1. Focus on UTM performance instead of firewall performance. Most vendors promote the performance of the product when used as a stateful firewall. Look for performance with UTM features enabled.
  2. Carefully analyze third-party testing data. These tests often compare UTM capabilities when deployed as IPS or in other dedicated security roles, even though UTM products are not designed for a single-function capacity.
  3. Consider UTM features for maximum security. These solutions are designed for modularity so that new security features can be added with minimal impact on network performance. Look at features like clustering, which can help future-proof your investment.
