Bitdefender Security for ISA Servers


Many companies today have shared Internet access for all the employees. Organizations deploying Internet Gateway solutions such as Microsoft® Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server can consolidate Internet traffic by caching it for more efficient utilization of shared bandwidth. They can also benefit from a built-in firewall that provides additional security and access control to protect their internal networks.


However, the ISA Server’s default firewall technology and limited functionality does not fully protect against malicious code entering into company’s network. Malicious attacks can be tunneled through applications or embedded in Web content, quickly propagating through the network to impact workforce productivity, increase costs associated to malware incidents, and divert limited IT resources.

Web-based services pose many security threats, including:

  • User downloaded files from Websites infected with malicious code
  • Infected email or Spam attachments from online mail services
  • Uploading or downloading infected files via an internal or external service
  • Infections that propagate through a shared network drive
