UAG Service Pack 3

Hello Readers

Following on from my previous about UAG Service Pack 2, Microsoft have now released Service Pack which I have personally been screaming for. As a Windows 8 user on my personal pc I was unable to dial back into the office via the Application and Network Access Portal. Which was quite frustrusting to say the lease.

Service Pack has addressed theses issues and now offers more support for other devices, like Windows Surface RT and Windows Phone 8.

More details on the additional parts added to SP3 can be found on the Forefront UAG Product Blog
