On Martin McKeay’s Podcast re: NAC/SNF
Our online MobCast featuring Martin McKeay, Mike Rothman, Richard Stiennon, Alan Shimel and I regarding our on-going debate regarding NAC and SNF was almost a DNF when we discovered that SkypeCast sucked beyond compare (we jumped to "regular skype") and then Martin’s recording software decided to dedicate its compute cycles to the SETI project rather than record us.
Many thanks to the esteemed Mr. Stiennon who was luckily committing a felony by recording us all without disclosure. See, there’s a good side to all that government training.
At any rate, we had a lively debate that needed to go on for about an hour more because (surprise!) we didn’t actually resolve anything — other than the two analysts were late to the call (surprise #2) and the two vendors were loud and obnoxious (not really a surprise.)
It was a great session that got passionately elevated across multiple elements of the discussion. What we really recognized was that the definition of and expectations from NAC are wildly differing across the board; from the analyst to the vendor to the customer.
Take a listen when Martin posts it and let us know if we should have a second session. I believe it will show up here:
