Increasing the Security for Webstation

Issue

Method for increasing the security of Vista Webstation.

Product Line

TAC Vista

Environment

Vista Webstation 5.1.7
Internet Information Server (IIS)
Internet Security and Acceleration Server (ISA)

Cause

Increased Webstation security is limited by the security of  Internet Information Server (IIS). Webstation is only a web application running on the IIS, therefore to make webstation more secure is to make the connections to the IIS more secure.

Resolution

Security can be increased by using an Internet Security and Acceleration Server (ISA). The IIS would then reside on a computer behind the ISA server.
