The integration of disk encryption and network access control is something that I have been preaching for awhile and I thought we were starting to see a little bit of that here. Unfortunately I don't see anything with that combination that isn't already available from a number of other encryption vendors.
Ultimately, we will see network access control providers that are able to allow/disallow devices that are connecting to the network based upon the encryption status of the hard drives. Why? Because encryption is hot right now and if NAC providers can piggy-back onto that techonology they might be able to push a few more sales.
At some point organizations are going to want to insure that all their devices that are connecting to their network are encrypted. NAC can easily provide that functionality. This will allow organizations the ability to segment non-encrypted devices to areas of the network that are free of sensitive data.
I'm calling it out, let's see who steps up.
