Microsoft Gains Partners for its Network Access Protection

Microsoft said it now has more than 100 networking and security partners for its Network Access Protection (NAP), a policy enforcement platform built into the Windows Vista operating system and the upcoming version of Windows Server, code-named "Longhorn".

NAP is designed to allow IT administrators to better protect network assets by enforcing compliance with system health requirements. Users can create customized policies to validate computer health before allowing access or communication, automatically update compliant computers to help ensure that compliance is ongoing, and optionally confine noncompliant computers to a restricted network until they become compliant.
