Microsoft's Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) and its predecessor, Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server, provide web and remote access firewalls that can guard your business network from external and internal attacks. TMG and ISA Server perform deep inspection of Internet protocols such as HTTP, making it possible to detect and block many threats that can get past traditional firewalls. The combination of multi-layer firewall and VPN management allow Forefront TMG and ISA Server to support stateful filtering of all VPN traffic. Forefront TMG and ISA Servers were the centerpiece of Microsoft's web security strategy, and Progent's Microsoft certified engineers and CISSP, CISA and CISM certified security consultants can help you manage your network security through expert maintenance and troubleshooting of Forefront Threat Management Gateway and ISA Server firewalls.

ISA Server was renamed Forefront Threat Management Gateway 2010, which has reached end-of-life status. The current trend for firewall solutions is to deploy purpose-built physical appliances that can provide the throughput needed to handle the high volumes of traffic characteristic of modern network environments. Popular vendors of these devices include Cisco, Juniper Networks, Barracuda, Check Point, SonicWALL and WatchGuard. (Refer to Cisco ASA 5500-X firewalls with Firepower Services configuration and management support.) Progent's firewall integration consultants can help you maintain your ISA Server or Forefront TMG deployment or evaluate the business benefit of upgrading to a more up-to-date firewall platform. If you choose to upgrade, Progent can help you design and implement a smooth migration, test and tune your firewall solution, provide training to your IT management, and deliver as-needed online or onsite consulting and troubleshooting support.
