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.

CVE-2020-15208
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In tensorflow-lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, when determining the common dimension size of two tensors, TFLite uses a `DCHECK` which is no-op outside of debug compilation modes. Since the function always returns the dimension of the first tensor, malicious attackers can ...
CVE-2020-15209
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In tensorflow-lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, a crafted TFLite model can force a node to have as input a tensor backed by a `nullptr` buffer. This can be achieved by changing a buffer index in the flatbuffer serialization to convert a read-only tensor to a read-write one....
CVE-2020-15210
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In tensorflow-lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, if a TFLite saved model uses the same tensor as both input and output of an operator, then, depending on the operator, we can observe a segmentation fault or just memory corruption. We have patched the issue in d58c96946b and ...
CVE-2020-15211
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In TensorFlow Lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, saved models in the flatbuffer format use a double indexing scheme: a model has a set of subgraphs, each subgraph has a set of operators and each operator has a set of input/output tensors. The flatbuffer format uses indices f...
CVE-2020-15212
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In TensorFlow Lite before versions 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, models using segment sum can trigger writes outside of bounds of heap allocated buffers by inserting negative elements in the segment ids tensor. Users having access to `segment_ids_data` can alter `output_index` and then write to outside of `outpu...
