Reverse Proxy for Exchange

A single LoadMaster can act as a reverse proxy for all exchange services such as HTTP, HTTPS, SMTP and IMAP as well as non-Exchange services such as Sharepoint and IIS services.

All LoadMaster models have SSL offload capability with some of the hardware models incorporating dedicated SSL acceleration hardware for improving Exchange performance.

OWA security is significantly enhanced as LoadMaster includes the Edge Security Pack (ESP) as a Microsoft TMG replacement offering authentication, logging and single-sign on.
