  • HI

    As Anthony said, Many and you will feel only if you work on it to be honest and i like it verymuch !!

    Main Advantages are :

    Its syncs well with all Microsoft products like Exchanges / Sharepoint / Lync etc and many MS products are designed keeping TMG in Mind.

    Best advantage is : Proxy and reverse Proxy, Publish mutiple websites with single IP

    AD integrated so that you can controll based on single user / Ad group as well. ( many firewall has AD integration but not that like TMG which i feel.

    Below are some features. All in one server

    Highlight: HTTPS Inspection
    URL Filtering
    Web antivirus/anti-malware protection
    E-mail security
    Network Inspection System (NIS)
    SSL bridging support
    Site-to-site VPN
    Remote access VPN
    Network load balancing
    Caching

  • There are many, and it was a great product, but unfortunately it's hit the end of it's life.  Though it's still supported, it's not being actively developed so I'd suggest considering other solutions.
