In 4.6, the agent was overhauled and is now called the NAC agent.  Previous versions were referred to as the Clean Access Agent.  So pretty much, the 4.5 agent and 4.1.3.2 agents are Clean Access agents, and the 4.6.x and 4.7.x agents are called NAC agents.


Some of the changes made were moving a lot of the agent configuration to an XML file, redesigning the GUI, adding a service portion (so that the stub agent is no longer required), and better agent logging.
