UTM Overview

Unified threat management (UTM) is a term used to describe the consolidation of several security features to protect against multiple threat types. The advantage of UTM is a streamlined installation and management of multiple security capabilities.

The following security features are provided as part of the UTM solution:

UTM Licensing

All UTM components require licenses with the exception of content filtering, which uses the parameters defined in the content filtering profile. This is because Juniper Networks leverages third-party technology that is constantly updated to provide the most up-to-date inspection capabilities.

UTM Components

UTM components include custom objects, feature profiles, and UTM profiles that can be configured on SRX Series devices. From a high level, feature profiles specify how a feature is configured and then applied to UTM profiles, which in turn is applied to firewall policies, as shown in Figure 14.

UTM Components

UTM profiles do not have their own seven-tuple rulebase; in a sense they inherit the rules from the firewall rule. The strength of the UTM feature comes from URL filtering, where you can have a separate configuration for different users or user groups.
