  • Hi Tom,

    Maybe you’re worry about denial-of-service (DoS) and brute-force attacks. To help prevent your organization from such attacks at the network perimeter, the security filter for the Microsoft Lync Server 2010, Edge Server monitors sign-in attempts and enforces account lockout at the network perimeter. A security filter update is now available for Lync Server 2010. For details, see this article.

    In addition, here’re another two articles (Security at the Edge & Lync Edge Server Security) for reference. Hope helps.

  • Tom, Noya, very good information, thanks!!!

    ... but...

    Has any third party accredited the Lync Edge server as a secure device? Similar to the link I provided in the original question, we see that the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) certified TMG.
