Best Practices

  • Become familiar with the wizards, toolbox, and tasks in the ISA Server Management Console.
  • Consider deploying ISA Server 2006 as an additional security layer to an existing firewall environment, particularly where a strong investment currently exists.
  • Consider the use of an ISA Server Hardware solution that provides prebuilt and presecured ISA solutions.
  • Where possible, take advantage of the enhanced caching capabilities of ISA Server 2006, which are turned off by default.
  • Secure Outlook Web Access (OWA) by using ISA reverse-proxy and forms-based authentication whenever possible.
  • Consider deploying the Enterprise version of ISA Server 2006 if more than two ISA servers will be deployed or if there are advanced design considerations.
  • Deploy ISA Server 2006 on the latest Windows and ISA security patches.
  • Consider the use of third-party add-ins for ISA Server that can enable advanced intrusion detection, web-content filtering, improved VPN support, and much more.
  • Document and back up the ISA Server 2006 configuration often to ensure quick recovery in disaster recovery scenarios.
