Network Access Protection will be a great tool for mitigation of the issues inherent in allowing notebooks to return to the corporate network when traveling off network.
Network Access Protection includes a client and server architecture. Administrators can configure Internet Protocol security (IPsec) Enforcement, IEEE 802.1X Enforcement, virtual private network (VPN) Enforcement, Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Enforcement, or all four, depending on their network needs.
There is an XP SP2 client piece to allow integration with existing desktop deployments.
This session is designed to provoke thought about how a NAP deployment may work in your environment and get people thinking about benefits to get corporate buy in for a development and pilot phase to co-inside with the Longhorn Release.
