We are pleased to announce that Fastvue for TMG has received a Silver Award on the premier site for TMG and ISA Server administration, ISAServer.org.

Microsoft MVP Richard Hicks spent some time with Fastvue for TMG and has published a comprehensive product review on ISAServer.org.

We believe a Silver Award is a great achievement for the first version of our real-time monitoring solution for Microsoft Threat Management Gateway – Thanks Richard!

Here’s some quotes from the review:

The Fastvue Dashboard is a unique and powerful tool that provides security administrators with insight in to current network activity with an intuitive graphical user interface and flexible, granular alerting capabilities.

For a v1 product it is surprisingly polished.

And to quote a tweet from Richard Hicks after the review was published:

I really like this product. It meets a need that no other product does for #Forefront #TMG today.

In the review, Richard mentions that the Fastvue Dashboard should be protected by SSL and require authentication – features we do not yet provide out of the box. Fortunately this can be configured relatively easily using IIS after Fastvue for TMG has been installed. For information on how to do this please see our Knowledgebase Article: Securing the Fastvue Dashboard.

However, ‘out of the box’ security and authentication is certainly on the roadmap and will be available in the not too distant future.
