  • Microsoft releases ISA Server 2006

    In case you missed it, Microsoft quietly released ISA 2006 today (8/1/2006).
    There are some nice new features but MS missed the bus imo, most of the new features are merely evolutionary... (at least for ISA). No traffic shaping, usage quotas, or other advanced features that would make this a killer app.


    Here's some helpful information related to ISA 2006 if you're interested.

      I think they are limited with what they can put in ISA now cause things like quotas would make people like surf control and websense very upset.

        I can't wait to get my hands on this through Software Assurance. I just went through a CBT for ISA 2004 and I LOVE it. Bar far one of the coolest and most fun to learn MS app we currently have.

            That doesn't seem to bother them (MS) in other areas... Why be different with ISA?

                True. Maybe they have a close partnership with one or some of these companies not to step on their toes.
