Why NAC is failing?

Interesting paper addressing the failure of NAC released 2 weeks ago.

Key findings
-NAC will not succeed as a niche market.
-NAC will be a feature set, not a product.
-Much confusion of NAC stems from ambiguous terminology, a result of NAC’s evolution from other products.
-The hindrances in adoption of NAC are due to technical challenges.

Key recommendations
-Vendors should focus on standards of interoperability in order to succeed.
-NAC solutions should be renamed, based on the feature components they offer.
-Consumers of NAC technology must demand standards and roadmaps from vendors.a way to make it work.
