Linux NAP progress + "scriptable" health checker

I am horribly busy at the moment, but I simply can’t stop myself from posting this. Check out the details on the Linux NAP Client from Avenda Systems. Oh yeah baby! That’s an awesome page to see! I am going to see if I can get a copy to demo via a webcast. I love it.


While I am on the topic of cool NAP partners, check out UNETsystem’s “Anyclick” NAP extension. Wow, it really gives the administrator fine-grained control of what he defines as “healthy”. Want to do NAP based on:

·         Registry value/key Check

·         File exist, size, version, date, checksum Check

·         Process Check

·         OS Version Check

·         TCP/UDP Port Check

·         Installed Program Check

·         INI File

Download their free beta and try it out on Windows Server 2008 RC0 / Vista / XP SP3!


I love it; my excitement for NAP is palpable. :-> Back to work.
