Applies To: Unified Access Gateway

Using Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG), you can verify the health of client endpoints connecting to Forefront UAG sites, and applications that are published via Forefront UAG. You can do this by creating Forefront UAG access policies for your organization, and evaluating endpoint settings against access policy requirements.

You can configure the following types of access policies for endpoint health validation:

  • Forefront UAG access policies─You can modify default Forefront UAG access policies, or configure new Forefront UAG access policies, and apply these to client endpoints. For more information, see Configuring Forefront UAG access policies.

  • Network Access Protection (NAP) policies─You can download NAP policies from a Network Policy Server (NPS), and configure the NPS server in Forefront UAG to evaluate endpoint settings. For more information, see Configuring NAP access policies.
