Hi,
I'm posting this here. I do not know if this is the right place.
Anyway, there is an article on Microsoft's site written by Tom that calls ISA 2004 an UTM.
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/secnews/articles/mvp_1204.mspx
quote:

Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2004 is a good example of a UTM device.

Also in this article Tom says that:
quote:

Since the ISA firewall represents the industry standard for Unified Threat Management (UTM) devices

http://www.isaserver.org/articles/2004pubowartm.html
I found this comparation:
http://www.miercom.com/dl.html?fid=20050914&type=report
Miercom tested 4 UTMs:
Cisco Systems's ASA 5520 system, Check Point VPN-1 Pro, Fortinet Fortigate 1000 and Juniper Networks NetScreen-208.
Please note that Cisco engage Miercom to do this test:
quote:

Cisco Systems engaged Miercom to independently test the Cisco ASA 5520 Adaptive Security Appliance against several other comparable, competitive Unified Threat Management(UTM) security appliances.
Check Point, Fortinet and Juniper all declined requests to provide Miercom with direct technical support for this testing.

I'm interested to see if you guys know that such tests have been done for ISA 2004/2006.
Those devices came loaded so ISA can have any add-ons on it or it can be an applianced which integrates ISA.
Please do not hijack this thread with comments like: according to my experience or to X opinion or to Microsoft's site or Cisco's site or Checkpoint's site or Juniper's site or I've seen a pen test...
So do you have knowledge of such tests(similar to the one made by Miercom, please read it to understand what I'm asking) where is a system based on ISA involved and if you do can you post the link here. It can be a test in which only ISA(or an appliance based on ISA) is evaluated.
I'm curios of the outcome.
Thanks!
