Manage Telecommuting Easily and Securely

If you could roll out of bed, commute just 40 feet, work in your robe and fuzzy slippers, and save thousands of dollars on travel expenses, would you do it? And, as a business owner or manager, would you offer the same benefit to your employees?, according to a survey commissioned by the Computing Technology Industry Association, 67 percent of respondents said their organization has seen greater productivity as a result of allowing employees to telecommute, either full or part-time, the main reason for the increase in output less commute time.

Creating Networks with ISA 2004 (Part 2)

In part one of this article series we focused on network creation and network relationships. In this article we will focus on advanced network design and network flow within ISA 2004.

Contrary to sensationalist belief, the DMZ and networks like it are still alive and well and have a place in networking. In fact the very people that say that the DMZ is dead are the ones that are paranoid about publishing servers that reside on the internal network and for this reason prefer to have an extremely secure back to back firewall scenario in place that offers highly secure access. This in itself is an advanced type of …

Creating Networks with ISA 2004 (Part 1)

Most organizations have started to realize the true benefit of ISA 2004 as an enterprise grade firewall and I have noticed a trend emerging among numerous enterprises moving towards using ISA to protect critical information assets. ISA is also being used to replace competitive products that do not offer similar application level protection for Microsoft networks. For this reason the creation and segmentation of networks is pertinent within ISA. ISA Server 2004 is built to provide a multi-networking model that affords granular control of network traffic between networks. These networks can be defined within the network objects in the ISA Server Management; by configuring these options, advanced configurations of multiple networks with intricate relationships can be achieved. ISA networks ISA networks are designed or created depending on the location of ISA server in relation to the other network elements within the network. For example if a DMZ is required and …
