I wish to know that, whether deployment of a single UTM box will do a better job then combination of both firewall & web security software in place together?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

One major consideration: single point of failure. If this device were to fail for some reason, it would take down all the protective services it offers. That being said, it is nice to have one consolidated system to manage and configure. You have to decide on the risks for your organization and what the best solution for it would be.

Try a Google search on UTM buyers guide. This will bring up some resources that should answer many of your questions.
