microsoft cisco nap collaboration
Microsoft – Cisco NAP Collaboration
  • Long-term agreement to share plans and integrate network security and health assurance technologies around Microsoft’s Network Access Protection (NAP) and Cisco’s Network Admissions Control (NAC)
  • Benefit is that mutual customers will be able to better address the increased threat and impact malicious software
  • Cisco and Microsoft will collaborate on three key deliverables:
    • Ensure compatibility between Cisco NAC and Microsoft NAP
    • Drive interoperability efforts between their two architectures as these solutions evolve and are delivered to customers
    • Lead industry standards in the network admissions and access control arenas to help promote broad market adoption and integration with industry leading ISV solutions.
  • Gives customers what they’ve asked us for: a more integrated Cisco/Windows solution
what does this mean to customers
What Does this Mean to Customers?
  • Network Access Protection (NAP) and Anywhere Access will be moved to Longhorn Server to provide more complete solution
    • For NAP, IPSec enforcement will now be included-another major customer request
    • Deployment and testing considerations made them more appropriate for a major release like Longhorn
  • Windows Server 2003 R2 will provide these benefits:
    • Simplified Branch Server Management
    • Streamlined Access Management Across Security Boundaries
    • Efficient Storage Management
  • Overall guidance:
    • Testing Windows Server 2003 SP1 is the best way to prepare for R2
    • Use VPN quarantine technology in ISA 2004 and Windows Server 2003
