New Line of UTM Security Appliances for Small Businesses from Netgear

UTM appliances provide solid security while maintaining network throughput.

Netgear, Inc., a provider branded networking solutions in San Jose, Calif., has announced the ProSecure UTM (Unified Threat Management) family of appliances for small businesses. The ProSecure UTM line, which initially consists of the UTM10 and UTM25 appliances, leverages security technologies from Commtouch, Mailshell, and Sophos as well as Netgear's patent-pending Stream Scanning technology to deliver security at a price that fits small business budgets. The UTM appliances also come with simple subscription options without any per-user licensing.

According to Netgear, its Stream Scanning Technology enables the ProSecure UTM to employ best-of-breed security technologies while maintaining a high level of throughput and minimizing scanning induced latency.

Features and highlights of the appliances include:

  • Anti-malware engine from Sophos
  • Netgear Stream Scanning Technology
  • Distributed spam analysis anti-spam technology with Mailshell
  • Hybrid in-the-cloud distributed Web analysis URL filtering in partnership with Commtouch
  • Zero-hour threat protection
  • Intrusion prevention system
  • IM and P2P application control
  • SSL and IPsec VPN remote access
  • Built-in VPN/firewall
  • 24/7 technical support

The UTM10 and UTM25 will be available in July, with an estimated U.S. street price starting at $375 with a two-year warranty.

The ProSecure solutions, including the recently announced STM Series of Web and Email Threat Management appliances for midsize businesses, will be displayed in booth number 1757 at the RSA 2009 conference and trade show in San Francisco, April 20-24, 2009.
