    The FSAV Server Security 11 product can protect the Windows Server operating system itself, but F-Secure products do not offer an integrated anti-virus defence for the ISA/TMG gateway-level network filtering services.


    Some competing antivirus vendors have such offers, but for how long? I mean Microsoft Corp. has discontinued their ISA/TMG product line 3 years ago and they became unsupported on 14 April 2015!


    It is probably a better idea to convert your gateway protection to some other actively developed product, for example Sophos UTM (ex Astaro Gmbh) is highly popular in Central Europe. Checkpoint is also good, but could be very expensive.

    There is an "F-Secure Internet Gatekeeper 5.22 on Linux" product (and new version 5.30 is expected soon). It is available as installable software or ready-to-run appliance image, to scan HTTP, FTP, SMTP and POP3. It could be placed in front of the TMG server in the network.


    It is also possible that the high-end appliance product "F-Secure Messaging Security Gateway 8 by Proofpoint" could be integrated into TMG using ICAP or other standard interface?
