When we began this project, our intent was to create a real-world scenario that would guide IT professionals in using Microsoft best practices to deploy Microsoft Forefront Protection for Exchange Server (FPE) 2010. We hope you find that we have achieved that goal. We’ve also included a thorough explanation of the architectural side of the product, which we consider an advantage for you, because the explanation of the technical details was reviewed by engineers who work directly on the FPE team at Microsoft Customer Service and Support (CSS).
This book provides administrative procedures, tested design examples, quick answers, and tips. In addition, it covers some of the most common deployment scenarios and describes ways to take full advantage of the product’s capabilities. It covers pre-deployment tasks, software and hardware requirements, performance considerations, and installation and configuration, using best practice recommendations.
Get focused, real-world guidance for planning and implementing Forefront Protection for Exchange Server--and help protect enterprise e-mail from viruses, spam, phishing, and policy violations.
