Celestix MSA appliance range is the world’s most deployed platform for Microsoft TMG 2010. MSA appliances are built for rapid deployment, simplified management and high performance. The Comet software engine provides an intuitive and feature rich web UI that allows for advanced configuration for both TMG and the appliance.

Celestix provides numerous additional features that complement and enhance the use of TMG. Automated update services provide pre-screened alerts and patches through the web UI, and multiple back-up and restore options provide solutions for disaster recovery.

Because of Celestix’ purpose-built appliance hardware and Comet™ appliance engine software, MSA appliances have earned an international reputation for great performance and reliability. We engineered our 6th generation hardware platforms to optimize the performance of TMG using the latest high-speed components and architecture optimized for 64-bit operations. We harden our appliance hardware platforms by eliminating all hardware components not needed to run TMG. Eliminating extraneous hardware and drivers removes security vulnerabilities and potential points of failure. Simplified hardware also reduces power and cooling requirements for cost savings on energy.
