UTM-1 Total Security is supported by SmartDefence Services, which maintain the most current preemptive security for the Check Point security infrastructure. To help organisations stay ahead of emerging threats and attacks, SmartDefence Services provides real-time updates and configuration advisories for defences and security policies.

Gateway antivirus, anti-spyware

Gateway antivirus and anti-spyware are core components of UTM-1. It uses an up-to-date list of antivirus and antispyware signatures and anomaly-based protection to stop viruses and other malware at the gateway. To check for threats hidden inside legitimate content, real-time antivirus scans are performed on POP3, SMTP, FTP, and HTTP services.

Messaging security

Uniquely, UTM-1 offers six dimensions of protection against messaging security threats including attacks against the messaging infrastructure, viruses and malware, and advanced forms of spam. Integrated e-mail IPS protects key e-mail server protocols to stop attacks against the messaging infrastructure. To address spam, UTM-1 uses IP-reputation based blocking and advanced pattern matching to stop advanced threats. In addition to signature-based antivirus, UTM-1 Total Security offers zero-hour protection to stop attacks at their onset, when a signature is not available.

Web filtering

UTM-1 Total Security appliances stop inappropriate web surfing with best-of-breed web filtering that covers 20-million-plus URLs, and helps define an online acceptable use policy for an organisation.

Simple site-to-site connectivity

With UTM-1 Total Security appliances, the setup of site-to-site VPNs and remote access can be simplified. Manual setup of node-to-node VPN tunnels and security for an entire VPN is replaced by a one-step process, where new sites and remote users are added automatically.

Secure, flexible remote access

UTM-1 Total Security appliances can connect employees and business partners to any organisation’s trusted network through flexible IPSec or SSL-based remote access, working seamlessly with a variety of VPN clients.
