SEG solutions can be offered in the form of appliances or software that goes on customer premises, hosted solutions that reside in solution providers' data centers, or multitenancy SaaS that exists in multiple data centers around the globe. Unified threat management (UTM) devices that combine firewalls with some spam filtering are not included in this market."
