  • Hi,

    I'm not privy to the business decision to deprecate NAP, but my personal opinion is that it wasn't considered flexible enough to address BYOD (bring your own device to work) and the explosion of portable devices, such as phones and tablets. 

    The preference is to manage portable devices with software such as Mobile Device Management (MDM) and apply AV polices and Windows Update policies using System Center Configuration Manager. With System Center, you can install an agent on the computer that reports back with status.

    DHCP policies can be used to filter DHCP requests, and NPS has the capability to limit 802.1X access to domain joined computers.

    You should also consider looking into Windows Analytics: Upgrade Readiness, Update Compliance, and Device Health.
