NAC Vendors Starting to ... You Know ... Die?

I really wanted to play some kind of joke on vendor being "knacked off," but all sounded too stupid to post here :-) In any case, some people were saying that there are way too many NAC vendors around, especially given slow adoption of this technology. Now they have proof.

Now, it is a sad thing to see a security company "go poof" and I am sure this one had good people, but I think certain market common sense should apply... For example, I know some people who want to launch a DLP vendor. Now, if their data loss "prevention" technology is better than anybody else's, they will probably fail. However, if they looked at the problem from a different angle and solved some of the challenges that nobody can touch (and which are real), now we are talking....
