Announcing the Microsoft Forefront Technology Adoption Program

Hello everyone!!  With the successful release of Forefront Client Security v1, it’s time to focus our efforts on the next release!  The Forefront Technology Adoption Team (TAP) is excited to announce the launch of our new program. The next version of the Forefront Client Security product will be bigger and better than the previous version, and so will the TAP, but we can’t do it without your help.

This Microsoft Forefront Technology Adoption Program includes all products under the Forefront product line, not just the Forefront Client Security product. These products are:

·         Forefront Codename “Stirling” – (To learn more about “Stirling”, check out the “Stirling” site.)

·         Forefront Client Security (FCS)

·         Forefront Security for Exchange Server (FSE)

·         Forefront Security for SharePoint (FSSP)

·         Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server (ISA) integration with “Stirling”

Based on your needs, you can utilize just Forefront Client Security or, if your organization uses multiple Forefront products, any combination of the above (we’d really like to find a bunch of customers that use at least two!)  The TAP program is a great opportunity for you and the Forefront product teams to collaborate and learn from each other. Your feedback is heard directly by the product team, helping you and us to improve the product. Feedback is taken in the form of general feedback, bugs reports, and Design Change Requests (DCRs). The program timeline is aggressive, starting November 27, 2007 and finishing in calendar year 2009.

  1. Visiting the Microsoft Connect website
