How ISA Server Works as an Internet Edge Firewall How ISA Server Works as a Back-End Firewall How ISA Server Works as a Branch Office Firewall How ISA Server Works as an Integrated Firewall, Proxy, and Caching Server How ISA Server Works as a Proxy- and Caching-Only Server

How ISA Server Works as an Internet Edge Firewall
Use ISA Server to:  Block all Internet traffic unless explicitly allowed  Publish internal servers such as Web or Exchange servers  Provide a VPN gateway for remote users  Provide proxy and caching services
