On Tuesday, Dan Wolff, George Younan, and I delivered the “Microsoft and McAfee: Implementing Network Access Control in Microsoft Environments” breakout session at McAfee’s Focus 08 Security Conference. Dan Wolff is a Group Solution Marketing Manager and George Younan is a Senior Security Consultant with McAfee.
The room filled up quickly and even after bringing in more chairs, there were people standing at the back. I spent about 35 minutes presenting a technical overview of NAP and how McAfee’s Network Access Control 3.0 product fit into the NAP architecture. Dan finished the presentation with information about the joint solution using NAP with McAfee’s Unified Secure Access and George gave a great demo showing virtualized DHCP enforcement using the McAfee SHA and SHV.
All in all, a well–presented and received session and an indication of the rising interest in NAC solutions using third-party products for health assessment capabilities and NAP as the enforcement mechanism.
Thanks Dan and George for the assist!
