Forefront Security for Office Communication Server Beta Now Available

A couple of years ago there was information on the www.microsoft.com site about a Forefront Security product for Office Communications Server (OCS). Then for some reason, all references to this product disappeared. I thought that maybe Microsoft decided to ditch the Forefront for OCS product and move on to something else. Well, the good news is that I was wrong!

A beta version of Forefront for OCS is now available. Some features included with it include:

  • Multiple anti-malware scanning engines provide better protection
  • Keyword filtering and file blocking reduce liability
  • Integration with Office Communications Server
  • Integration with multiple server roles
  • Provides protection for federated connections and public IM users
  • Localization
