Network Access Protection

Just a quick heads up on a products a lot of my work friends on that has been announced publically. It’s Windows Network Access Protection. The basic idea is that a client connecting to a network is put on a restircted network till it has proven that it’s a safe machine (up to date with patches, running anti-virus, AV signatures are up to date, etc). This restricted network has enough access to do things like update the AV signatures and so forth. It’s a pretty nice idea for all thoose corperate laptops that slip around the firewall and screw your internal network.
