UTM + USM: All You
Need for Complete
Threat Management

Did you know?
229 days was the median number of days attackers were
present on a victim’s network before they were discovered
(Mandiant 2014 Threat report)
84% of organizations that were breached had evidence
in their logs
(Verizon Data Breach Report 2013)

The earlier you can detect and respond to a breach, the faster you can lower the risk and potential damage. However, many breaches are going undetected for weeks or months because IT teams lack the tools and the expertise to collect and analyze the security data they need for better visibility.

Too often organizations will deploy point products to respond to each new threat, which is an expensive and cumbersome way to try to solve the problem of lack of total security visibility. Deploying several single-purpose security products gives you only some of the capabilities you need, which leaves gaps in your ability to detect and respond to malicious activity on your network.

A Better Approach: UTM and USM

Instead of having to evaluate, purchase, deploy, configure, and maintain these point products separately, you can have best-in-class threat management by combining threat protection from Fortinet FortiGate Unified Threat Management (UTM) devices with AlienVault Unified Security Management™ (USM) threat detection and response.

Deploying Fortinet FortiGate UTM and Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) devices at your network edge and AlienVault USM™ in your network is an effective, affordable way to significantly reduce the cost and complexity of complete threat management.

  • FortiGate UTM and NGFW devices offer high-performance threat prevention at the edge of your network that block unwanted applications and malware, prevent intrusions, and block other malicious activity.
  • AlienVault USM platform provides essential security capabilities for within the network and remote locations, centralized management, and constant updates to the AlienVault Labs Threat Intelligence.
  • When leveraged together, you get complete security visibility and threat detection, with a consolidated, correlated view critical security events across the entire network.

Complete Security Visibility with USM

AlienVault’s proven USM platform enables you to integrate and correlate alerts from any FortiGate device to accelerate and simplify threat detection, response, and regulatory compliance across your entire network. By combining AlienVault USM with the FortiGate UTM and NGFW products, you can achieve best-in-class threat intelligence, detection, and remediation guidance:
