LoadMaster is Certified as a Load Balancer and Reverse Proxy for Skype for Business


Today at KEMP, we are very pleased to announce that LoadMaster™ has been officially qualified for Skype for Business 2015 in both the Load Balancer and Reverse Proxy categories! Aside from Microsoft’s own reverse proxy solution, we are currently one of only two vendors listed as both a LoadBalancer and a Reverse Proxy solution. On top of that, in a change to previous years, this Microsoft accreditation was validated through third-party, independent testing.

What does this mean for our users?

Many customers deploying Skype for Business look for solutions that meet these approved standards from Microsoft. With KEMP’s long list of features and the lowest $/Gb cost in the marketplace, we’re very pleased that Skype users now have a fantastic addition to choose from on the list of approved Skype for Business load-balancing and reverse proxy partners.
