UTM: Unified Threat Management IM: Instant Messaging The FortiGate unit has a series of built-in security controls that allow you to prevent access to specific types of content on the web. You can not only block content that carries liability risk, but you can also prevent programs and services from being used on your network if they might interfere with productivity. In this example, we’re going to disable Instant Messaging programs. Feel free to explore the UTM application lists, and apply this example to any category or material you’d like to safeguard against.
