UAG - alternative


  • HI,

    We are designing a new extranet and had designed it using UAG to provide required functionality.
    However, it would appear that UAG is no longer available for sale and is not going to be supported from 2015.
    Even if I could buy it, I cannot deploy a solution with only a 12 month shelf life.

    So does anyone know of any alternatives?
    I know there is the new web proxy role in windows server 2012, but that doesn't seem to do what UAG did.

    Thanks in advance

  • Thanks for sending this Mick.

    I too am in a similar situation and would appreciate a comment from someone with knowledge of an alternate solution.

  • I'm trying to bump this as I too am having trouble finding an all encompassing alternative.

  • The WAP/ADFS constellation is able to handle most of the needs from the UAG. However while it does not offer the same things as the TMG/UAG constallation, things can be solved differently, often for a better solution looking in the future perspective :)

    What functionality are you looking for?

    The reverse proxy, pre-authentication, SSO functionality is all there, basically the most common used functions for a borderline authentication gateway. As you drill deeper down into the capabilities, you might want to place this functionality in already existing other hardware.

    That said, I do miss TMG and UAG on the market, as they filled a gap and, when understood, delivered some rather nice functionality.

  • Looking for something similar - There is a good blog article on replacing it at:

     Talks about replacing UAG that was being used Microsoft DFS.
