Thanks Kevin for sharing this information!

There is actually a really good overview from Vision that shows possible integrations into your IT-Infrastructure.

Maybe what should be mentioned in as well is that when using reverse proxies in your environment for services like Outlook Anywhere etc. that the Protection Engine can be used for securing this requests coming from the Internet. Based on the capabilities of the Protection Engine to handle ICAP and RPC by default as well that extensions that can be created using our SDK the Protection Engine can secure almost every web application.

Cheers,
