Secure Application Publishing

The Kemp Edge Security Pack (ESP) simplifies the secure publishing of applications with pre-authentication of clients and single sign-on (SSO) to improve the user experience.

Historically, many Microsoft applications such as Exchange, Lync/Skype, SharePoint and IIS-based web services were deployed with Microsoft’s Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) to meet these requirements.

In September 2012, Microsoft announced they were discontinuing any further releases of:

  • Forefront Threat Management Gateway 2010 (TMG)
  • Forefront Threat Management Gateway Web Protection Services (TMG WPS)

Forefront-branded product were unavailable for purchase as of December 2012. Mainstream support ceased in April 2015 and extended support will end on 14 April 2020.

With Forefront TMG having reached its end of life, Kemp ESP on LoadMaster is a perfect solution to replace TMG while retaining the authentication and single sign-on features.
