Re: Network IPS Market versus UTM



I disagree, UTMs usually contain stripped down version or streamlined
version of full blown commercial off the shelf applications. It has
the least of all worlds and may not function correctly when all
functions are enabled, or one function may work better than another.

The term 'UTM' has been replaced by 'MFS' - Multi-Function Security

UTM Devices offer value for money and ease of enterprise management
rather than dealing with multiple devices and appliances.

In my opinion UTM devices when carefully evaluated might offer
better packet scanning speed than scanned by multiple appliances in
an enterprise.

In the longer term, I do think standalone devices will gain lesser
ground. UTM yields a better return on investment when carefully
selected.

Note: Might be worthwhile to look for central policy group
management, audit capabilities, analytics and administrative
aspects while considering backup servers. You might also want to
check the load factors involved.

of this on standalone IPS device market? It also appears that cost
differential is also small between UTM and standalone network IPS
products. is standalone network IPS device market on decline?
