Hey NAP fans!
The Network Access Protection (NAP) product team is proud to announce the publication of a new Forrester WAVE report on Network Access Control for the third quarter of 2008, which places Microsoft’s NAP as the leader of the top four network access control (NAC) vendors!
From the report’s abstract:
In Forrester's 73-criteria evaluation of network access control (NAC) vendors, we found that Microsoft, Cisco Systems, Bradford Networks, and Juniper Networks lead the pack because of their strong enforcement and policy. Microsoft's NAP technology is a relative newcomer, but has become the de facto standard and pushes NAC into its near-ubiquitous Windows Server customer base.
This is a wonderful confirmation from an industry expert that NAP is a great NAC solution for Windows-based networks. For some quotes from the report, click here.
