The KEMP Edge Security Pack

As organizations rely more and more on web-based applications and a mobile workforce, the importance of secure application publishing continues to increase. A solution that provides edge security, SSO application integration and flexible authentication options is critical for optimal user experience and information security policy compliance.

Historically, many Microsoft applications such as Exchange, Lync, SharePoint and IIS-based web services were deployed with Microsoft’s Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) to meet these requirements and provide a way to securely publish applications in Internet Facing deployments. With TMG having reached its end of sale and mainstream subscription support drawing to a close, customers are continuing to evaluate alternative solutions for replacing TMG.
