Microsoft will purchase FutureSoft's DynaComm i:filter Web filtering software and integrate it into a future version of ISA Server. The product helps manage, filter, and report on an organization's Internet usage.

"We were impressed with DynaComm i:filter's rich database and comprehensive management feature set," said Ted Kummert, corporate vice president of Security, Access and Solutions Division, Server and Tools Business, at Microsoft. "We believe this product will help us better address customer needs for more secure and productive Web access. It's a product which already integrates with ISA Server and we will be looking at ways to deepen that integration, and simplify the user experience. Though it won't be made available immediately, this product will help us deliver an additional layer of defense to our customers in future releases."
 
Kummert clarified that Microsoft did not purchase FutureSoft itself, but only acquired the DynaComm i:filter product. FutureSoft will remain independent company.
