Microsoft Qatar did a Security event yesterday at the Four Seasons Hotel, Doha. We started off with an enthusiastic audience of 70+ people.

  • We kicked off with a presentation on Microsoft Business Ready Security by good ol’ David Maskell, Security SSP – Microsoft Gulf, followed by technical demos.

    How does Forefront scale on an enterprise level 3000+ concurent users?
    Does it support SAML 2.0 for federated security?
    What is the performance benchmarks in a SOA environment.

    I am interested in the MS Forefront product and its integration feasibility in a SOA environment.

    It would be nice to post the presentations of the events as a replay or as a pdf doc.

    It is a great exposure to the Microsoft security product in the GULF area.

    In general it is a great event that brings that customers and partners
    together.

    Hi Simon,

    Forefront is a “suite” of products that ranges from edge to servers to endpoints.

    We have Active Directory Federated Services for federation. Some links that will be useful:
