Network Access Protection (NAP) is a policy-enforcement platform built into Windows. It’s designed to protect client computers, networks, edge devices and hosts from malware by verifying the client’s health and making it compliant to corporate network policies. This set of technologies allows an IT administrator to keep the endpoints healthy at all times and enable access control based on health policies. In Windows Server 2008 R2, RD Gateway (formerly referenced as TS Gateway) has significant improvements in its integration with NAP.
