Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG) provides a gateway for remote employees, mobile workers, partners, and other third-parties to access corporate applications and resources. To help secure applications published through the gateway, Forefront UAG allows you to define which users are allowed to access the applications, and how they will authenticate to Forefront UAG and to the applications. Forefront UAG allows you to use a number of authentication servers to authenticate users to the portal.
