The commercial version of Forefront UAG will be available early January, on the Volume Licensing Service Center.
UAG was first introduced in the second half of 2007 and its release is a significant milestone in over 2 year’s journey, creating a world-leading Access solution. Building on its predecessor, Intelligent Application Gateway, UAG enables remote access via managed and unmanaged PCs and mobile devices. It integrates a deep understanding of applications, the health state of end user devices, and the user’s identity for greater security and reduced management costs.
While UAG provides a variety of connectivity options, such web publishing and SSL VPN tunnels, one of the best new features is UAG’s support and enhancements for Windows DirectAccess (DA). DA is the future of remote access allowing for seamless, always-on connectivity. Always-on keeps users happy as they are continually productive, but it also keeps administrators content as users are “always-managed.” UAG helps make DA deployments simpler, more extensible and easier to scale
Forefront UAG enables organizations to give employees (and trusted partners and vendors) secure remote access to corporate resources. With its focus on application intelligence and granular access control, UAG is an ideal solution all of your remote access needs that provides centralized management and policy control across all users, devices, and network resources.
