When ISA Server 2006 SP1 rolls out this summer, there will be some cool new features to look forward to, including support for SAN certificates.
Having started using Proxy Server 1.0 (I know… hold on to your comments for now.. :) back in the days, I turned away from ISA’s predecessor(s) for a few years to engage with what I thought were better options at that time— “dedicated” hardware firewalls. Not too long ago, I started using ISA again, and became a convert with ISA 2006. It made “publishing” (am I the only one who finds the phrase “publishing to the internet” amusing?) Exchange services such as OWA, EAS, Outlook Anywhere, and SMTP secure and relatively effortless.
If you have ISA 2006 deployed with Exchange Server 2007, you’re probably looking forward to SP1 as well for its SAN certificate support. Check out the other cool features in this post on the ForeFront TMG (ISA) team blog: ISA Server 2006 Service Pack 1 Features.
