Last Wednesday I delivered a presentation here at TechReady 8 (in Seattle) about TMG Beta 2 SMTP Protection (which is a feature that I really like since I worked with Exchange for so many years) and today I’m really happy to share with you that Forefront TMG Beta 2 is available for public download at Microsoft web site. This TMG version has so many news that you have to take some time to install, analyze the new GUI, read the deployment guide and see with your own eyes the exciting new set of features that this version offers. Let me highlight some of them:

 

• SMTP Protection

• Network Inspection System

• Integration with the Forefront Security Suite (codename Stirling). For this you will need Stirling Beta 2.

 

Now go ahead and download TMG Beta 2 and enjoy this great release. On the page below you will find the bits, release note and deployment guide. So you are all set to test, evaluate and send feedback about TMG Beta 2:
