Introducing Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server
you want to have a high security and a high performing web-based solution then
using Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2004 could be an answer
to all your needs. It is a VPN (Virtual Private Network) and a web cache solution
that can serve as an application-layer firewall too. Further the Microsoft Internet
Security and Acceleration Sever 2004 can minimise your server downtime to a near
zero level and is capable of maximising your return on the IT investments you
The Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2004 is known for providing a very secured network access of any kind, ease of use and a greater level of protection from all the known sources of threats. Networks that are based on Microsoft applications such as Microsoft Outlook Web Access (OWA), IIS (Microsoft Internet Information Services), Routing and Remote Access Service, Share Point Portal Server, Active Directory Service, etc., can also be installed with the Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2004 and there are no issues that can hamper the functioning of the network.
The unique application-layer-aware firewall in the Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2004 can greatly assist any type of organisations to get protected from any level of external as well as internal security threats. In any web based services, the existing traditional firewall cannot check the Internet Protocol such as HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol) for any possible threats and where as the Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2004 is efficient enough in detecting threats that may affect Internet Protocols such as HTTP also.
The Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2004 come with an integrated VPN (Virtual Private Network) facility and a firewall capability that can filter and inspect any type of traffic including the VPN traffic and protect your network in a real time situation.
The entirely new user interface, user friendly wizards, useful templates and the host of other management tools in the Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2004 can assist network administrators and help them in avoiding the most commonly committed errors on security configuration.
The novel aspects of circuit filtering and stateful packet filtering that has been employed in the Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2004 are capable of protecting any business from all the known sources of threats today. You may be aware that any data in a network get transferred in the form of many packets and the Stateful packet filtering technique here is responsible for deciding the movement of such packets through the network and to establish a secured environment through application-layer proxy services.
Stateful packet filtering is capable of opening communication ports dynamically and in case of need or when the communication ends the opened ports are also closed in a systematic manner.
Circuit filtering is the process that is responsible for providing application-transparent circuit gateways that can be made use for accessing Telnet services, Real Audio, Windows Media Technologies, and many other Internet Protocols and services through multiplatform systems. Further, the Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2004 makes use of command, application and data-aware filters for effectively controlling traffic specific to any application.
The much sought after flexibility and ease of use by network administrator features of the Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2004 are in fact due to the capabilities such as unified VPN capabilities, multi networking architecture capabilities, using of robust visual policy editor for better firewall management, etc., that are in-built in the system.
Further, the automated wizards feature, usage of intuitive network templates, and enhanced troubleshooting tools that have been incorporated into the system will be of very great advantage to network administrators while maintaining the networks. Whenever you install the Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2004, the Web-caching components and the firewall capabilities will get installed automatically making your job easier and you can set your firewall up and running in no time.
With the Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2004 you can export your existing configuration setup details or information to any external XML (Extensible Markup Language) and be able to monitor your firewall capabilities in a real time environment.
As an efficient network administrator, you can find the features such as VPN quarantine capabilities, better and improved cache rules that can enable a better centralised storage of objects, customised protocol definitions and improved HTTP filtering in the Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2004 very useful and much to your liking.
