Why Your Business Needs a Meraki Advanced Security License

by Erik Briceno

When it comes to protecting your business from security threats, a unified threat management (UTM) service provides a simplified method that integrates multiple security services and features.

This type of service lets your business combine critical security features – such as intrusion detection and prevention, VPN, firewalling, content filtering and anti-phishing/anti-malware filtering — into a single solution designed for small and medium-sized organizations.

By utilizing a UTM, you won’t need on-premises network security appliances, but you’ll still have centralized control for building in-depth network security defense. You’ll even have protection against combined security threats, including malware and attacks that simultaneously target separate parts of your network.

With a UTM operated by a managed security services provider (MSSP), your business can maintain a hardened and compliant security posture by monitoring and managing all aspects of your security systems. Your network and assets will be continuously protected 24x7x365 with feeds from intelligence on current and emerging threats.

Meraki offers cutting-edge performance.
