Our final Solution Accelerator story is about Napera, a company that provided an interesting twist to the Microsoft Forefront Integration Kit for NAP: a simple-to-use NAP appliance. Napera focuses on organizations with a need for a simple defense-in-depth solution that provides protection against unauthorized network access as well as simple health checks.
Napera has proven that NAP can be made easy for organizations in which simple and low-to-no maintenance is essential.
Todd from Napera has worked with the Forefront Client Security/NAP Integration Kit team, and as a partner he has come to see the potential value of providing his customers a new integration point for FCS and NAP. The Napera solution is an excellent adoption example for Microsoft, and illustrates how Solution Accelerators can pioneer new ways that partners can use Microsoft products.
In this series we've looked at the Solution Accelerator team's ability to foster deployment of three Microsoft products: Windows Server 2008, NAP, and Forefront Client Security.
