Today, Microsoft announced the release to manufacturing (RTM) of Microsoft Forefront Security for Office Communications Server (FSOCS).

Microsoft Forefront Security for Office Communications Server provides fast and effective protection against IM-based malware for OCS 2007 and OCS 2007 R2 environments by including multiple scanning engines from industry-leading security partners. FSOCS also helps reduce corporate liability by blocking instant messages containing inappropriate content.

 

Like other Forefront server security products, FSOCS provides superior detection of the latest threats when compared to single engine solutions by using our multiple engine scanning technology. FSOCS has also been featured in a few of the OCS R2 virtual launch sessions that you should check out. Lastly, we are making available some new content including a new demo walk though, case studies from Sporton International and Convergent Systems, and a  datasheet. Be on the lookout in the next few weeks for our Technet virtual hands on labs!

 

Some of the new functionality in this release includes:

o   64bit support

o   Support for OCS 2007 R2

o   Support for OCS 2007 Enterprise Edition server roles

o   Integration with OCS 2007 Access Edge role to protect corporate IM from external public IM threats

o   Localization in 11 languages
