ProSecure by NETGEAR brings enterprise-class security to small businesses and home offices
ProSecure, the specialized network security brand by NETGEAR, Inc. has unveiled the ProSecure UTM5, a gateway security appliance that extends enterprise-class Unified Threat Management (UTM) technology to any small business, home networks for telecommuters, and small branch offices around five users in size.

Distributed via NETGEAR's worldwide channel partner program, the ProSecure UTM5 appliances come with simple subscription options without any per-user licensing.

The UTM5 enables small companies to protect themselves using a wide array of defenses including firewall, SSL and IPSec VPN, URL filtering, network antivirus, and antispam, but in a very small, easy-to-use form factor and with a corresponding price point. IT departments can also use the UTM5 to protect the home networks of telecommuters, as these remote employees often share connections with other endpoints that may not be as secure as a corporate laptop.

"Several months ago, we replaced our SonicWALL Internet gateway with the ProSecure UTM appliance," said Phillip Harvey, CTO for Active Ingredients, a digital marketing company in Larkspur, Calif. "The UTM has kept us malware-free and blocked access to unwanted sites that often pop open from otherwise legitimate sites. The SSL VPN has also enabled our team to quickly access resources across various servers from both our MacsŪ and PCs. Even with all its security, the UTM5 has not slowed down our large file transfers and allows us the luxury of focusing on our creative work rather than worrying about Internet threats."

The ProSecure UTM5 is an extension of the ProSecure UTM10 and UTM25 Unified Threat Management series. The ProSecure UTM5 leverages security technologies from security partners Sophos, Mailshell and Commtouch, as well as NETGEAR's Stream Scanning technology to deliver security with high performance and ease-of-use at a price point that maps to small business budgets.

The ProSecure UTM5 is available immediately in the U.S. through value-added resellers and partners such as CDW and, for an estimated U.S. street price starting at US$275, with the option of bundling one-year subscriptions for web security, email security, support and maintenance to bring the total to US$399.
