We were trying to decide if we should go TMG or Cisco, and I was arguing for TMG.

I guess this has made the decision for us, and I'll look like a goose.

Years of attempting to master a brilliant but idiosyncratic Microsoft product down the drain.

This is the biggest dissapointment in years that I have had With Microsoft!

And we that have just decided to go for TMG, and therefor upgraded all of our core CALs to Enterprise CALs to get the URL/Malware inspection in TMG etc..

I believed in Forefront all the way, no there's nothing left other than UAG and FIM.


Shame on you Microsoft.

Well, I've just come out of a management meeting where this was discussed.

Basically, I was made to look like an idiot for recommending TMG, and I'm still trying to scrape the egg off my face.

The consensus was that MS can't be trusted with our security, if they are going to pull the plug on such a critical infrastructure product, and that we must return to what (non-IT) management recommended... Cisco.

So it looks like I'll be implementing some ASA and ISR devices.

It was definitely a hard decision but I will quote Jim Harrison on this:

If not for “the cloud”, TMG might have had longer, stronger legs…

MS is telling us the TMG features will be ported to Server 2012 and UAG....

Anyone else being fed this?

Well, let's put it this way:
- for client VPN access (PPTP, L2TP/IPsec, SSTP) and DirectAccess, Windows 2012 RRAS is definitely the best solution.
- for all other remote access solutions (web/server publishing), UAG should be in the picture.
- however it looks that it is the end of the MS egress proxy/firewall offering.

HTH,
Stefaan
