Network Access Protection Helps Art Museum Share Information More Securely
The Rijksmuseum Amsterdam is a museum in the Netherlands that showcases Dutch art from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century. The museum has a long history of making art accessible to the public, and the tradition of accessibility also extends to its technology environment. Visiting colleagues and students can connect to the network using the museum's workstations or their own mobile devices. However, although workstations were tightly managed, the museum could not guarantee the health of visitors' client devices. To improve security, the Rijksmuseum is implementing Windows Server 2008 with Network Access Protection. As a result, the museum can automatically enforce security policies for client devices before they connect to the network.
