UTMStack is an American cybersecurity company based in Miami, Florida. It is an open-source Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) and Extended Detection and Response (XDR) solution focusing on threat prevention and compliance.[1] The company develops and sells enterprise-level cybersecurity solutions and services like dark web monitoring, vulnerability management, asset management, compliance management, log management, identity management, and incident response.[2]


UTMStack was founded in 2016 by Ricardo Valdes, headquartered in Miami, Florida. It is a Unified Threat Management platform that simplifies cybersecurity by consolidating multiple tools into one stack, aiming to reduce costs and enhance security measures.[3] UTMStack leverages advanced technologies like AI-powered analysis, real-time threat intelligence, and compliance management to fortify organizations against evolving cyber threats.[4][5]


UTMStack offers real-time threat detection by correlating data during ingestion.[6] The platform's correlation engine analyzes data, reducing alert fatigue by allowing users to fine-tune the system with false-positive conditions and tags.[7] UTMStack has over 30 billion indicators of compromise (IoC) for effective detection and can identify and mitigate threats in real time.[8] The platform integrates with various technologies through APIs, Syslog, Netflow, or agents, allowing seamless integration with existing infrastructure for a comprehensive view of security posture.[9]

UTMStack provides customizable SIEM and XDR capabilities powered by real-time correlation and threat intelligence, making it an enterprise-ready solution for log management, threat detection, and incident response.[10] UTMStack enables compliance with GDPR, GLBA, HIPAA, SOC, and ISO standards through intuitive dashboards and detailed reports. It records, analyzes, and stores every log, alert, and action to simplify audits and ensure accountability.[11]

UTMStack involves three main components: log collectors (agents), a central server for log centralization, and correlation rules for detection and incident response.[12] Agents collect logs from systems, execute incident response commands, and function as proxies for collecting syslog and netflow logs from network devices.[13] The central server stores and correlates logs from various assets to identify potential threats. Correlation rules are crucial for detecting threats by correlating logs from multiple systems with threat indicators.[14]
