tshinder -> Can I use NAP with DirectAccess? (28.Apr.2010 10:41:39 AM)

Yes! Windows Network Access Protection (NAP) is available for DirectAccess (DA) clients. If you have a current NAP infrastructure set up on your network, you can immediately use that. If you don't have a NAP infrastructure, you can set one up to support the DA clients. But since current thinking on network security is that the corpnet is no more secure than the Internet in general (from an overall security perspective and the nature of insider threats and the higher impact that insider threats pose) NAP might as well be deployed for all clients - so that both DA clients and hosts on the corpnet are protected with NAP.

HTH,
Tom
