McAfee Launches UTM Firewall for SMBs

by CXOtoday Staff    Apr 28, 2009

McAfee’s Unified Management Threat (UTM) firewall will enable multifunctional network security appliances especially for SMEs.

"McAfee UTM firewall is a complete office network-in-a-box Internet security appliance that can be deployed as a firewall, VPN gateway, or UTM security appliance," said Darrell Rodenbaugh, SVP of McAfee’s midmarket segment.

The new solution offers SMBs a range of security solutions in an integrated package with a platform for subscription-based security services to respond to cost-cutting initiatives, managing their risk, and meeting their compliance regulations programs.  

UTM management firewall has web-based central control that allows active monitoring of intrusion detection, network events to alert network personnel, and supports 3G wireless support for a primary connection or backup/failover.
