Network security, tools & management
Forescout has pioneered an agentless approach to network security to address the explosive growth of mobile computing, IoT and cloud computing. They offer a highly scalable, heterogeneous platform that provides global enterprises and government agencies with agentless visibility and control of traditional and non-traditional devices, including physical and virtual infrastructure, PCs, laptops, tablets, smartphones and the latest IoT devices, the instant they connect to the network.
Forescout technology continuously assesses, remediates and monitors devices and works with disparate security tools to help accelerate incident response, break down silos, automate workflows and optimise existing investments. More than 2,500 customers in over 70 countries improve their network security and compliance posture with Forescout solutions.
Why choose Forescout?
The Forescout solution provides the unique ability to see devices, including non-traditional devices, the instant they connect to the network and enforce policy-based control of these devices. Once you can see and control, the solution can orchestrate information sharing and automate workflows among disparate security and IT management tools.
Greater visibility into devices connected to the network
Because Forescouts solution discovers the increasing proportion of devices that do not or can’t have agents, customers have reported seeing up to 60% more devices on their networks than previously known. They provide increased visibility into devices regardless of their physical locations - on-premise, in the public cloud and in corporate data centres or branch offices.
Their solution sees devices when they connect to the network and continuously monitors them while connected. Forescout has the ability to detect a change in device posture, such as outdated or broken agents, as well as determine when a device is not acting the way it should, based on an extensive repository of behaviours developed over the past 15 years.
Automated control based on policy
Once the solution discovers and classifies devices, it provides a choice of what to do with these devices based on granular compliance and security policies. Organisations can set their own specific security policies that are enforced upon connection. Forescout provides many options in addition to allowing or denying network access, including segmenting to a more secure VLAN, alerting IT teams or third-party systems of potential threats, and quarantining devices from the network. The solution enforces these policies automatically, without the need for human involvement.
Orchestration of actions between systems
Forescout enables third-party systems to share data to gain a better context of device posture and orchestrate an automated response. They have built integrations with leading security providers to extend the value of existing security investments by interconnecting fragmented security tools.
Integrated across a heterogeneous environment
Forescout integrates with a diverse group of switches, routers and servers, and is not constrained by a single vendor dependency. Their ability to integrate with all major network infrastructures is particularly important as workloads move to the cloud and organisations utilise heterogeneous environments serviced by many vendors. This provides customers with ease of implementation, freedom from vendor lock-in and resilience to upgrade and refresh cycles.
Scalable and resilient to cover the growing number of network devices
Forescout supports organisations of all sizes and scale, with the largest customers using the Forescout CounterACT® platform to manage over one million devices on the network. Failover clustering capability provides service continuity without manual intervention in both single-site and multisite environments for non-802.1X and 802.1X deployments.
Infrastructure-wide security that spans your campus, data centre and cloud environments
Address the explosive growth of IoT devices, virtual infrastructure and cloud computing by gaining a consistent view and applying consistent security policies across devices and virtual instances—regardless of location.
Rapid time to value
Organisations often begin realising the benefit of Forescout almost immediately after implementation as they see substantially more devices on their network than previously known. We have customers that have deployed Forescout across hundreds of thousands of devices in less than 90 days.
