Microsoft preps Firewall upgrade

Microsoft is preparing a second version of its enterprise firewall Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server, focusing on application-level security and XML web services.

Microsoft said it is finalizing plans for a second, full version of its firewall nearly two years after ISA Server debuted.

Mike Nash, corporate vice president of Microsoft's security business unit, said Microsoft planned a beta this year, but was unable to provide an exact date for the beta or final product delivery.

Nash said version 2.0 would appeal to users as "an application-level firewall and beyond" moving up from a layer-four packet filter firewall.
