ForeFront TMG

Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) was a reverse proxy for business applications like Exchange and SharePoint, and helped provide security for the application servers. It has been discontinued by Microsoft. A KEMP LoadMaster with our Edge Security Pack and Web Application Firewall modules can be used to replace TMG with a fully supported solution. LoadMaster coupled with these two additional modules provides many of the features that TMG delivered. In several areas the LoadMaster exceeds the functionality of TMG in important and beneficial ways. These are:
  • Layer 7 Application & Content Inspection based load balancing
  • Layer 4 Transport layer based load balancing
  • Geolocation based load balancing
  • Server health monitoring
  • WAN Acceleration
  • SNORT based Intrusion Prevention
  • User Pre-authentication and Policy enforcement based on Active Directory
  • Single Sign-on support
  • Dual Factor authentication support
  • Real Time network monitoring
  • SSL inspection
  • SSL Offloading
  • Reverse Proxy
  • Protection against OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities
