I should go through a discussion about MS forefront and MS ISA. May be it can help you to understand the difference between this both. You can keep dipper view the features of ms forefront highlighting features I given below.

URL filtering, Anti malware inspection, Intrusion prevention, Application  proxy and

Also it serves you HTTP/HTTPS inspections. It can reducing your cost of web security.
