Hi Guys,

I have ISA 2006 Enterprise running in my env. I am just thinking whether when is the EOL of this product? Is there a upgrade path for it? Is TMG the upgrade for ISA 2006? How different is it?  IS it worth the upgrade? Is the upgrade direct?

Thanks.

According to Microsoft, mainstream support for ISA 2006 will end on January 1, 2012. The good news is that the successor to ISA, Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) 2010 has been available since late last year.

Not that different in overall look/feel/usability; most of the new features are related more to outbound security (secure web gateway).

Depends on your current role and usage of ISA, but there are lots of advantages as discussed here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee207139.aspx and here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff686709.aspx

Due to the move from 32bit to 64bit you cannot do an in-place upgrade, so need to perform a migration more details here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd896979.aspx

Cheers

JJ
