Bill Jensen, Senior Product Manager for Forefront TMG, here again. There’s more great news beyond just the release of Forefront TMG Beta 2.
Customers who purchase a license for Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2006 Enterprise Edition along with Software Assurance will receive 15% off the combined purchase. Customers with a valid Software Assurance agreement receive future versions as part of the agreement. In this case, when Forefront TMG releases, a customer with a valid agreement for ISA 2006 will receive it.
What this means is that you can get the benefits of ISA today and prepare your network for Forefront TMG when it releases. See www.microsoftincentives.com for details.
