Introduction – How to Secure Microsoft Exchange Server In Post-TMG World
For many organizations, Microsoft’s Threat Management Gateway was a critical reverse-proxy security solution for Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint publishing. TMG provided a number of security benefits for Microsoft applications including:
- Application security
- Network security
- Authentication proxy
- Secure remote access
The Microsoft announcement of TMG’s end-of-sale in 2012 and the end-of-support in 2015 left organizations without a long-term solution for securing their existing Exchange and SharePoint deployments.
