! Download Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) Beta 3

Hi,

Forefront TMG Team make available last week the Beta 3.

“The Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway is a comprehensive Secure Web Gateway solution that helps protect employees from threats on the Web with enterprise-class anti-malware scanning and blocking, URL filtering (new in Forefront TMG Beta 3), web proxy and caching functionality. Microsoft Forefront TMG also helps to ensure that encrypted (SSL) Web sessions have the correct security policy applied and enforced according to organizational policy. In addition, it can also be used to manage unified perimeter security that protects networks from attacks with an integrated application and network-layer firewall, intrusion detection and response capabilities, VPN connectivity, and management of e-mail security. The newly added protection technologies will enable organizations to inspect e-mail traffic for spam and malware and enforce content policy compliance in your organization. Last, but not least, Microsoft Forefront TMG enables IT administrators to easily maximize existing information technology (IT) investments by improving network security and performance.

At the time of this release, the MRS database content is being populated and updated continuously as part of the initial beta service offering. As this process continues, URL filtering categorization accuracy and comprehensiveness will increase. A telemetry package designed for improving the quality of URL filtering database and collecting your feedback is planned to be released soon. Please check back for updates in August.”
