And some more Forefront news!! Today I spoke to a colleague who told me that we would participate in the Forefront Stirling TAP and that I could receive the software next Friday. When I clicked on the link to check out some documents about the new products I saw that Forefront Codename ‘Stirling’ is available to the public since yesterday!
You can download several new Forefront products, even the ‘new’ name for ISA Server is mentioned there : Forefront Threat Management Gateway.
Some excerpt from the Forefront codename ‘Stirling’ website :
Microsoft® Forefront™ codename “Stirling” is an integrated security system that delivers comprehensive, coordinated protection across endpoints, messaging and collaboration servers and the network edge that is easier to manage and control.
By delivering simplified management and providing critical visibility into threats, vulnerabilities, and configuration risks, Forefront codename “Stirling” helps reduce costs and achieve greater insight into the enterprise security state.
At release, “Stirling” will include:
A central management console and dashboard for security configuration and enterprisewide visibility. The next-generation versions of Forefront products: the next generation of Forefront Client Security, Forefront Security for Exchange Server, Forefront Security for SharePoint and the Internet Security & Acceleration Server (to be renamed the Forefront Threat Management Gateway). Dynamic Response, an innovative Microsoft technology built into each component of “Stirling” that allows the entire system to share and use security information to dynamically respond to threats across multiple layers of the organization.
