NETGEAR ProSecure Unified Threat Management (UTM) Appliances combine performance with comprehensive security coverage. Patent-pending Stream Scanning Technology enables the use of an extensive virus and malware database while maintaining a high level of throughput and minimizing scanning induced latency. The flexible modular software design architecture leverages patent-pending Stream Scanning technology to scan files and data streams up to 5x faster than conventional methods. This architecture in turn enables ProSecure UTM to utilize virus and malware threat databases from NETGEAR and Sophos™ that are hundreds of thousands of signatures in size - up to 200x more comprehensive than legacy small business UTM platforms. This architecture, combined with best-of-breed hybrid in-the-cloud Web filter and anti-spam technologies and with proven NETGEAR firewall and VPN functionality, form the ideal SMB gateway security solution.
