Device compliance is and has always been a part of user authorization
The author is implying that legacy/existing remote access solutions rely on authentication as a sufficient mechanism of providing access (see quote below). That assertion is incorrect, as any commercial VPN/NAC vendor, such as Juniper, Cisco, Pulse Secure to name a few have a comprehensive mechanism of device compliance verification as a part of the authorization process. Same applies to a modern "Zero Trust" vendors, like New Edge, for example, which uses Device compliance as a part of a policy calculation.

"In many ways, this is a legacy of decades of remote access solutions built around the traditional security perimeter. In the threat environment of years past, the critical risk for remote access was that an unauthorized individual would seek to connect to the remote access portal. The critical controls were passwords and two-factor authentication. But in the future threat landscape, this risk is joined by another: a legitimate user connects but the machine they are using to do so is not fully under their control."

On the physical security perimeter .....
Some time ago my wife, daughter and her daughter, Cariana, 3 years old, came to visit my work and obtained visitor ID badges.  Cari had lunch in the cafeteria - loved Pizza - and met my colleagues in the malware forensics department.  All were enchanted.  Then came time to go and in the lobby this little 3 years old takes all three badges and says " these have to be returned" --- she then walked over to the security desk to hand them in.  The woman there wants to adopt her on the spot.  Moral of the story: a 3 year old got the rules of physical security BETTER than some employees do.
