Securing Employee Web Use with Forefront Threat Management Gateway

Check out what Bill Jensen, senior product manager for the Forefront Threat Management Gateway firewall as to say about using the TMG to secure employee Web use. Bill focuses on three key features:

  • Web Antimalware
  • Outbound HTTPS (SSL) Inspection
  • Network Inspection System (advanced IPS)

What’s great about this blog post is that Bill let’s the cat out of the bag and tells us that URL filtering will be available in future versions iterations of the TMB Beta process. The RTM version will include URL filtering, so don’t worry about that.

And if you want to improve your server consolidation plan, how about getting rid of that Edge Exchange Server you’re using now and putting it on the firewall? That’s right. You can put the Edge Exchange Server on the TMG firewall machine and have it neatly integrated with the TMG firewall console – a twofer at its best!
