Deploy Secure Mobile Email without Microsoft Forefront
Bastion forwards traffic to the configured backend servers
(e.g., Microsoft Exchange or internal website). However, by
employing a pluggable filtering architecture, it can be easily
extended to support any kind of HTTP filtering. Many of Agat
Software's security products (including the ActiveSync Shield
suite) are already available as Bastion filters.Bastion is a
lightweight, extensible and highly scalable reverse proxy server
solution, focused on content filtering for HTTP(S) traffic. Bastion
is designed to enable organizations that do not use Microsoft
Forefront gateways to take advantage of the ActiveSync Shield
secure mobile email product suite.
Scalable Event-Driven Architecture
Bastion is designed as an event-driven server using asynchronous
I/O which uses a small number of threads to respond to requests.
This significantly reduces the overhead vis-a-vis thread-driven
synchronous I/O architectures. Accordingly, the event-driven
architecture greatly enhances scalability, allowing Bastion to
handle a higher number of concurrent TCP connections compared to
process or thread-driven reverse proxy servers.
Bastion can operate on both HTTP requests and responses.
Requests and responses can be blocked, modified or left as is (if
no filtering is needed). Since Bastion offers maximum HTTP protocol
compatibility (beyond the common web usage subset), it can be used
to filter almost any HTTP-based protocol, such as Exchange
