MobilityShield Offers Secure Reverse Proxy Alternative for Microsoft TMG to Publish Lync and SharePoint
MobilityShield’s Bastion reverse proxy solution enables organizations to safely publish SharePoint and Lync from mobile devices and protects against Active Directory credentials theft, adding Two Factor Authentication and preventing account lockouts
JERUSALEM, May 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ –
MobilityShield [http://mobility-shield.com ], an innovative solution that guarantees
secure mobile authentication, is offering its innovative Bastion reverse proxy
[http://mobility-shield.com/revers-proxy ] solution as an affordable and simple solution
for secure publishing of Microsoft SharePoint and Lync.
The need for the new solution arose by IT Security managers as organizations are
looking for a reliable and cost effective solution to replace the Forefront Threat
Management Gateway (TMG), which Microsoft said it would stop issuing. This has driven
companies to seek other reverse proxy solutions for using Lync and SharePoint on mobile
“Organizations that wish to make SharePoint and Lync accessible to mobile clients
approached us looking for a good alternative for TMG,” said Guy Eldan, CEO of AGAT
Software Solutions, which developed MobilityShield. “In order to meet this challenge, and
other security issues relating to connecting safely to Lync and SharePoint from outside
the organization, we have introduced the Bastion reverse proxy.”
Bastion is a scalable, event-driven reverse proxy designed specifically for such tasks
as publishing HTTP traffic, performing content inspection and securing authentication
Bastion is designed to allow adding security components such as LyncShield
[http://mobility-shield.com/lyncshield ] or SharePointShield
[http://mobility-shield.com/sharepointshield ]. Main security features included are Two
Factor Authentication, active directory (AD) credential protection and DDoS account
lockout prevention. Bastion avoids the usage of AD credentials with full Lync
functionality including exchange data and without the need for ADFS.
Bastion can run on both Windows and Linux making it an ideal corporate cybersecurity
solution for organizations that wish to have their reverse proxy on a Linux machine for
security reasons and when other security layers already exist on the Linux platform,
making it a familiar one.
Bastion is specifically designed for IT security managers to enable organizations that
refrain from using Microsoft Forefront gateways.
