Exchange 2007 Edge – Behind a separate appliance?

The guys over at eWeek are skeptical about the security built into the new Edge Role in Exchange 2007. They are concerned that this new role will be unsecure and Microsoft will not be able to keep up with security patches to ensure it’s stability.

I would give them the benefit of the doubt here. Microsoft has had a history of insecurity, although recently their entire line of ISA products has been stable and secure while living at the perimeter of the network.

As people start to download and install the product I would love to hear what people’s opinion is. You can take the poll that I will update the results of here or add a comment on what you think.
