- Microsoft Forefront Online Protection for Exchange
Microsoft Forefront Online Protection for Exchange (FOPE) is a hosted e-mail security service, owned by Microsoft, that removes spam and viruses from e-mail messages. The service does not require client software installation, but is activated by changing each customer's MX record. Each customer pays for the service by means of a subscription.
Most administrative tasks are performed through the use of a web-based administrative console. The console allows customers to perform management tasks, such as adding users and configuring filtering.
FOPE is part of the Microsoft Forefront group of products.
Microsoft Exchange Hosted Encryption, which provides policy-based email encryption, and Microsoft Exchange Hosted Archive, which provides cloud-based archiving, may be added to a FOPE subscription.
The 11.1 version of Microsoft Forefront Online Protection for Exchange was released in April 2011.
Microsoft Forefront Online Protection for Exchange was originally created by FrontBridge Technologies. Microsoft acquired FrontBridge Technologies Inc. in 2005, and it became a subsidiary of Microsoft.
