Because it is intergrated with their other products. And if you are
considering ISA then 99% of the time all ready running multiple IIS boxes,
exchange boxes, etc and adding one more M$ product wont really matter. And
also no matter what product you use, people will find a way to hack it.
People will also always go after the largest/most popular vendor. Antiflame
statement: im a hardcore mac guy (Apple IIe was the first box I used), no I
don¹t like M$, and hate having to stick up for them.

 And also no matter what product you use, people will find a way to hack it.
Antiflame statement, I am a hardcore mac guy and really don¹t like to stick
up for M$, but no matter how bad anyones programmers are people will always
go after the most popular product.

Subject: ISA server

  I'm looking for a good quality proxy product.  I've got 2 Internet links in
2 sites (connected via WAN) and I want a product that will act as a proxy for
each site but also allow the clients to go from one to the other in the event
of failure.  I know that ISA server does this as part of a Proxy array but
the enterprise version is something liek £4.5k a piece!!  Way to expensive
when I'm not using the firewall side of it!
  Talking of which, second question.... how do you rate ISA server as a

Thanks for your help in advance!
