Forefront Security for OCS Beta 3 Now Available

The Beta 3 for Forefront Security for Office Communications Server (FSOCS) is now publicly available for download.  FSOCS provides fast and effective protection against malware and out-of-policy content in IM conversations and attachments for Office Communications Server 2007 (OCS) environments. This new release includes:

- Support for OCS 2007 R2

- Support for OCS 2007 Enterprise Edition server roles

- Integration with OCS 2007 Access Edge role to add protection from external public IM threats

Like other Forefront server security products, FSOCS uses multiple engine scanning to provide superior detection of latest threats over single engine solutions. The FSOCS RC is shipping with five antimalware engines from Microsoft and industry-leading security partners.

The scanning of IM for viruses includes Public IM (Sametime integration, Yahoo, MSN, AOL), Group IM, and IM Based file transfers. Scanning does require the servers to proxy peer to peer communications so that the servers can capture the IM traffic.
