Overview of Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway 2010
Forefront Threat Management Gateway ConsultingMicrosoft offers a broad selection of security products and services within the Forefront family. Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) 2010 builds on the proven security technologies of ISA Server 2006, which it is designed to replace and for which it includes downgrade rights. TMG 2010 runs on a 64-bit server and provides a centrally managed Internet gateway that offers a single-server solution for a variety of security functions including an application layer and network layer firewall, URL filtering, malware inspection, reputation services, intrusion protection (IP), application proxy, VPN management, and HTTP/HTTPS inspection. TMG provides comprehensive web security logging and reporting capabilities, allows custom reporting powered by Microsoft SQL Server, integrates with Active Directory to simplify authentication and policy enforcement, and can be deployed as a virtual machine to cut costs and improve availability.

Microsoft has discontinued Forefront TMG 2010. The firewall capabilities offered by the product are commonly handled by hardware appliances from providers like Cisco, Barracuda, Check Point and WatchGuard. (Visit Cisco ASA firewalls with Firepower Services consulting.) Progent's firewall integration consultants can help you maintain and troubleshoot your Forefront TMG 2010 environment or help migrate to a modern solution. If you decide to upgrade, Progent can help you design and implement an efficient migration, integrate your on-premises firewall solution with cloud-based resources, train your IT staff, and provide as-needed expertise.

Progent's Microsoft-certified consultants can help you evaluate the business case for TMG 2010 in your environment; plan and carry out test and production deployments; integrate Forefront TMG 2010 with Windows 2008, Active Directory, SQL Server, Exchange Server 2010, and SharePoint 2010; set up TMG 2010 to run on a virtual machine with Windows Hyper-V; assist you to create custom reports; train your IT management staff; and provide ongoing consulting and troubleshooting support. Progent can also help you migrate smoothly and economically to Forefront TMG 2010 from ISA Server 2006 or ISA Server 2004 so you maximize your return on investment in Microsoft's Forefront technology.

Enhancements of Forefront Threat Management Gateway over Microsoft ISA Server 2006
Forefront Threat Management Gateway 2010 builds on the protection technology incorporated in ISA Server 2006 and offers significant improvements over the platform it replaces. TMG 2010 provides a secure web gateway for protecting users within the security perimeter from web-based threats by integrating anti-virus, anti-phishing, and anti-malware technology with advanced URL filtering and by extending these protections to SSL-encrypted traffic through HTTPS inspection. The powerful Network Inspection System (NIS) integrated with Forefront TMG 2010 is a signature-based network Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) that can provide continually updated application-layer protection for vulnerabilities discovered in Microsoft products and protocols.

TMG 2010 offers improved connectivity through the ability designate email servers to be published on a 1-to-1 NAT basis. Through its new ability to recognize SIP traffic and provide a method to traverse the firewall, Forefront TMG 2010 simplifies the implementation of Voice-over-IP solutions within the network. Support for ISP redundancy enhances availability and facilitates disaster recovery. In the area of VPN connectivity, TMG 2010 can be configured for tunnel-mode IPsec for compatibility with third-party devices, provides termination of L2TP/IPsec and PPTP-VPN sessions using native Windows VPN services, and can be used to publish internal Windows Servers as VPN servers.

The Enterprise Edition of Forefront Threat Management Gateway 2010 delivers improved expandability, availability, speed, management, and virtualization. This high-end edition supports network load balancing and Cache Array Routing Protocol (CARP) to provide fail over and enhance performance, allows access to Microsoft's Enterprise Management Console for centralized administration, and accommodates unlimited virtual CPUs.

The SP1 version of Forefront Threat Management Gateway introduces additional features and enhancements including a new User Activity report that displays web surfing data over a specified period based on websites and URL categories users have requested, simplified deployment of BranchCache at a remote office by using Forefront TMG as the Hosted Cache server when installed on a computer running Windows Server 2008 R2, the ability to run Forefront TMG and a read-only domain controller on the same server to save on IT costs at a branch office, and support for the securely publishing SharePoint 2010.

Network Inspection System for Enhanced Application Layer Inspection
A key part of Forefront TMG's IPS architecture is the Network Inspection System (NIS), a traffic analysis solution based on protocol decoding that uses signatures of known vulnerabilities to detect and block attacks and exploits aimed at Microsoft operating systems and applications. NIS involves a combination of services and software designed to reduce the time gap between when a network-based vulnerability is first discovered by Microsoft and when protective patches are installed on customers' production systems. Ordinarily, this gap can be measured in weeks. NIS can often reduce it to hours, providing zero-day response.

The protection strategy of NIS is based on signatures, code that detects attempts embedded within various network protocols to carry out attacks, as opposed to file-based attacks. Protocols commonly used as attack vectors which NIS can intercept include HTTP, DNS, SMB, SMB2, NetBIOS, and MSRPC, as well as the common email protocols SMTP, POP3, IMAP and MIME. NIS security begins with the Microsoft Malware Protection Center (MMPC). This organization has research facilities in five countries on three continents and works 24 hours a day monitoring global malware trends by analyzing data collected from a broad array of sources, including 600 million Windows computers. The MMPC, which also publishes responses to file-based threats for use by the malware inspection feature of Forefront TMG, develops and distributes the signature definitions used by NIS to defend against network-based attacks.

When a new vulnerability or exploit surfaces, MMPC researchers develop and test a signature which the MMPC response team publishes for efficient distribution via Microsoft Update Service. Forefront TMG can be configured to download and install all new signatures automatically, or the signature library can be updated manually and selectively. You can also select which protocols you want TMG to monitor if, for example, you don't want to waste bandwidth testing for protocols that are already blocked. The NIS feature, including access to updates, is included with the basic Forefront TMG license.
