Using Forefront TMG, you can inspect outbound HTTP traffic for malware (such as, worms, viruses, and spyware). By enabling malware inspection on Web access rules, the Malware Inspection Filter scans Web pages and files that were requested by client computers, and either cleans harmful HTTP content or blocks it from entering the corpnet.

Outbound inspection refers to HTTP requests that originate from clients on networks protected by Forefront TMG.
