I had a student ask a question I can't answer....

If you deploy NAP can't it be circumvented by bring up a Virtual Machine?
IE If a user fired up a virtual machine and and uses NAT from the host PC to
gain access to the network...wouldn't the NAP environment think that the file
is being requested by host OS?....Yet actually it's the virtual machine
getting the file?
