[Microsoft Lync Server 2013] KEMP Edge Security Pack

En plus d'être un load balancer simple, performant et abordable financierement, Kemp devrait arriver sur le marché avec un nouveau module prévu pour Q1 2013: KEMP Edge Security Pack

L'objectif est clairement afficher de pouvoir remplacer Microsoft TMG 2010 ne pouvant plus être acquis depuis le 1ier décembre, UAG ne supportant pas Lync Mobility, ceci est plutôt une nouvelle intéressante.

Architecture précédente avec TMG:

Nouvelle architecture avec le pack Edge Security:

Fonctionnalités:

End Point Authentication for Pre-Auth
 
Clients who are trying to access virtual services on the LoadMaster will have to provide Authentication information which will be used by the ESP to validate the clients right to access the service.  In the event of success the client is enabled to access the service and in the event of failure the client will be blocked until valid credentials are provided.
 
Persistent Logging and Reporting for User Logging
 
When clients try to access a service this will be logged on the LoadMaster as part of the ESP.  This will allow monitoring by the administrator.
 
Single Sign On across Virtual Services
 
LoadMaster is designed to handle multiple virtual services supporting unique workloads.  These virtual services can be joined together into Single Sign On groups.  The ESP will enable clients to only enter the authentication information for the first virtual service and then this same information will be used to access other services in the Single Sign On group.  Therefore a client accessing Exchange will also be able to access SharePoint and other workloads if they are configured in a Single Sign On group.
 
LDAP authentication from the LoadMaster to the Active Directory
 
Active Directory is the standard for the Authentication Provider for Microsoft workloads.   LoadMaster will support the key connection types between LoadMaster and the Active Directory.
 
NTLM and Basic authentication communication from a Client to the LoadMaster
 
LoadMaster with ESP will support key authentication types -- Basic and NTLM -- between client and the LoadMaster providing clients with an optimum authentication experience.
