Hello,

I need to renew the antivirus licenses for the company that I am working now, and I am thinking to buy a firewall with a UTM feature to don´t need to by the console antivirus  like what I have now  (Kaspersky Endpoint).

I am new with UTM firewalls, and I don´t know if a UTM firewall protects each machine like a common antivirus does?

There are some kind of best practice like: "Use a UTM firewall but have an antivirus software in each machine for better security" ?

UTM firewalls like Watchguard, Sonicwall, Barracuda they provide a software client to install on each machine? or the protection is made by a different way?

Thanks!

WIth a Sonicwall you have the choice of just gateway antivirus, or both gateway and client. If you choose the client the Sonicwall will take care of updating the clients each day. All other UTM applications (intrusion protection, content filter etc) are gateway, and updated daily by the Sonciwall.

A Sonciwall could be a good way for you to start with UTM since it is browser configured and managed, and there are a lot of "how to" videos and help online.

This client app option normally is just for medium sized firewalls or all devices lines have this feature?

Yes, if the additional cost is not an issue. You can never have too much!

If the dollars are a problem, the gateway AV does a good job and will typically stop all internet sourced problems. What you don't get is protection if someone brings in a USB or whatever from home and loads it
