Cyberoam UTM appliances work for small, medium and enterprise networks of your organization. It’s a complete hardware firewall with a bandwidth management utility. The internet web filtering facility is available with a group base and a user base in UTM. You can also monitor user activity over the internet and all URL logging with UTM. You can restrict the user, by prohibiting them from unwanted URL categories like jobs, sports, matrimonial, etc. The bandwidth usage graph can be sorted by user, group, entire organization, daily, weekly, and monthly, allowing you to make decisions about increasing bandwidth for organizations. Fail over facility is also available and therefore if any one ISP is disconnected, it is automatically switched over to an ISP2. Backup and restore facilities are available allowing you to take an entire configuration backup and then restore everything if there are problems.
Room for Improvement:
This UTM comes with the user base license so you may have to purchase a different model according to your user numbers. Its costs are high. They provide first year support for free then after that they charge for support. An upgrade charge will be also applicable.
UTM has all the necessary features to manage internet connectivity and security. It provides protection against spam and threat attacks. Their development team is very busy developing new features so that more technical facilities will be available in the new version.
