Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server (ISA Server) is a stateful packet and application layer inspection firewall, virtual private network and web cache (both forward caching and reverse caching) server which runs on Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003. ISA Server 2004 introduces multi-networking support, integrated virtual private networking configuration, extensible user and authentication models, and improved management features. ISA Server 2004 Enterprise Edition includes array support, integrated Network Load Balancing (NLB), and Cache Array Routing Protocol (CARP). One of the core capabilities of ISA Server 2004 is its ability to securely publish Web servers. For example, some organizations use ISA Server 2004 to publish their Exchange services (e.g., OWA, RPC over HTTP, ActiveSync, OMA). ISA Server can be used to pre-authenticate clients in the DMZ so that only authenticated traffic reaches the internal servers. Image File history File links Current_event_marker. ...
