Bing Safe Search, ISA Server and Forefront TMG

image If you haven’t had a chance to test out Microsoft’s new search engine – Bing – then today’s a good day to start. I never thought I’d used anything but Google for Internet search, but since Microsoft released Bing a couple of weeks ago, I’ve been using Bing as my first search engine and then falling back on Google if I don’t find what I need.

It’s pretty nice and you should give it a try and see how it works for you.

One issue that put Bing on the map is the preview feature for videos. It was reported (and confirmed by me) that if you search for “certain” terms, you can put together a nice library of 30 second salacious videos. Not exactly something you want available to your firm’s employees 🙂

Is there a way you can leverage your ISA or TMG firewall investment to control user access to this Bing “feature”? You bet!

Check out this article Jim Harrison, who provides you all the step by steps to get the job done:
