Network Access Control (NAC) was touted to be the end-all be-all technology that would answer all the our prayers for a way to ensure that only authorized devices can access our networks. Several years later, NAC is still around, but not as prevalent as you would think it would be.

Jennifer Jabbusch, the author of Security Uncorked, has released a white paper that explains why and then goes on to offer some suggestions to the vendors of these products that might help them moving forward.

I was lucky enough to get to read the paper when it was in draft form. I strongly recommend you give it a look. It is well written and contains a lot of really good information.
