How do you protect yourself from computers that do not meet your health requirements on your network?
Network Access Protection (NAP) with Windows Server 2008:
- A feature of Windows server 2008 that enforces health-requirement policies on client computers running:
- Windows XP (SP3)
- Windows 7
- Windows server 2008
- Windows server 2008 R2
- Ensures client computers are compliant with policies such as anti-virus and security policies on a granular level, based on who the client is and the group to which the client belongs.
- Remediation servers can offer support for computers not meeting health requirements, and to automatically bring the client back into compliance and dynamically increase its level of network access.
- You are able to integrate NAP’s features with software from other vendors or with custom programs.
- You can customize your health enforcement solutions. NAP includes an application programming interface (API) for developers and vendors that allows them to create customized solutions for health-requirements, network-access, and ongoing compliance.
