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 Threat Management Gateway (TMG) 2010. We hope you find that we have achieved that goal. We’ve also included the main deployment scenarios for Forefront TMG, and we take a deep dive into the installation process from the RTM version to the Service Pack 1 version.
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. This book covers pre-deployment tasks, use of Forefront TMG in a Secure Web Gateway Scenario, software and hardware requirements, and installation and configuration, using best practice recommendations.
