Urk. That would worry me immediately.
I would recommend that anyone running OS X with the ports open on ISA should responsibly lock down there Mac using Brickhouse or one of the other firewall utils.
Although ISA is very good and will repel most attacks you are significantly increasing your machines availabilty.

It may be worth asking your tech guys if you actually have to have ISA set up to validate it's users on your internal network (you may have a good operational reason for this). If not then instead of having everything wide open there could still be a Mac Users client set but with access restricted to everything but the protocols that are needed (probably only http, ftp, sntp and pop/smtp/imap if you're getting external mail).
Trivial to set up for your ISA techie.
