For the proxy server, we are using Microsfot TMG and i have found this link attesting to its secure features.
What security testing has the Lync Edge server/services been put through?
Has Lync Edge receied any similar certifications?

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.

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