After the release of Exchange Server 2007 SP1 Beta 2, The Forefront Team also unveiled Microsoft Forefront Security for Exchange Server with Service Pack 1 Beta 2.
Forefront Security for Exchange Server SP1 Beta 2 integrates multiple scan engines from industry-leading security firms into a comprehensive, layered solution, helping protect your Microsoft Exchange Server messaging environments from viruses, worms, spam, and inappropriate content.

- Seamless support for organizations running IPv6.
- Improved content filtering with installable keyword lists that can be used to eliminate email containing profanity in eleven supported languages.
- Improved integration with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager through new management packs (available in Q4 2007) that allow administrators to proactively monitor the state of their Exchange 2007 protection.
- Increased flexibility for scanning or blocking high compression zip files and RAR archives.
