Cisco, Microsoft Join Forces On Security

Keeping the spirit of "coopetition" alive, Cisco Systems and Microsoft on Wednesday said they're delivering on a two year old promise to make their network-access security offerings interoperable.

At The Security Standard conference in Boston this week, the two companies are demonstrating an interoperable architecture that will enable customers to use both Cisco's Network Admission Control (NAC) and Microsoft's Network Access Protection (NAP) technologies. Both offerings are designed to protect corporate networks by verifying the security health status of devices before granting them access.
