ISA Server 2004. Microsoft Security Services.
ISA Server 2004 is the core component for protecting Microsoft Networks
Microsoft® Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2004 has extended its capabilities from a simple web caching server and is now becoming one of the key components for protecting Microsoft Networks, as a secondary firewall used to protect the organisation's assets. These are the key areas where we believe it adds security control to the organisational network.
* Departmental or Back-End Firewall
Note: While ISA can be used as an Internet Edge Firewall, Peapod believe there are more suitable solutions to provide this functionality such as NetScreen and Check Point.
* Combined with SurfControl for Web filtering
* Application Firewall for MS Outlook Web Access and MS SharePoint
* Reverse Proxy for MS Internet Information Server
