ForeScout Technologies, Inc. Key Developments

Malwarebytes Integrates with ForeScout Technologies, Inc to Deliver Real-Time Threat Visibility and Remediation

Malwarebytes™ announced an integration with ForeScout Technologies, Inc., to provide joint customers real-time threat visibility and remediation for both managed and unmanaged devices. The Malwarebytes integration with ForeScout helps businesses accelerate their incident response, stop zero-day exploits and reduce their exposure to emerging security threats. With the integrated solution, customers benefit from a reduction in attack surface through the capability to proactively prevent compromise, sweep the network for latent threats, assess the enterprise-wide exposure to and impact of an active threat, and automate real-time threat response directly from the ForeScout CounterACT® console. This integration employs the following Malwarebytes enterprise offerings which communicate bi-directionally with the ForeScout CounterACT console: Malwarebytes Breach Remediation which provides advanced threat sweeping, confirmation, investigation and thorough removal via an extensible and agentless application. Malwarebytes Endpoint Security which provides next-generation protection from advanced zero-hour threats using six unified defense layers to proactively block an attack before it begins. As ForeScout CounterACT detects and profiles devices that connect to a network, Malwarebytes Breach Remediation or Malwarebytes Endpoint Security solutions are silently deployed onto discovered endpoints. Active endpoints then report their real-time health status back to ForeScout CounterACT, and discovered threats will trigger an automated hygiene policy and incident response. The Malwarebytes integration with ForeScout provides customers with: Visibility into emerging threats: Discover threats and exploit attempts across the enterprise. Rapid threat detection and remediation: Assess risk at the endpoint, remediate threats instantly and remove unwanted applications that might lead to latent infection. Automated threat response: Share contextual insights into discovered threats and automate the incident response workflow.

ForeScout Delivers Extended Modules for the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform

ForeScout Technologies, Inc. announced new ForeScout Extended Modules for the Palo Alto Networks® Next-Generation Security Platform to help joint customers improve network protection and response. Through these new modules, ForeScout integrates its real-time device scanning with the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform, including its Next-Generation Firewall and WildFire™ cloud-based malware prevention service, to provide joint customers with improved visibility and control of their network-connected devices. This approach gives joint customers the ability to detect and prevent advanced threats, implement dynamic network segmentation, enforce access based on user, device and security context, and automate response to indicators of compromise (IOCs).

ForeScout Extends Visibility and Control Capabilities to the Cloud with Amazon Web Services

ForeScout Technologies, Inc. announced a new solution to provide real-time and continuous visibility and control of Amazon Web Services (AWS) deployments. This new solution allows IT and security teams to enhance the security of their cloud workloads and have a more holistic view into their network security posture across campus and cloud environments from the same solution, all without adding agents. With the rapid enterprise adoption of public cloud environments, the definition of an "endpoint" has changed. Organizations must adopt a holistic approach to security that spans desktops, laptops, notebooks, servers, virtual machines, IoT devices, and both public and private cloud workloads. ForeScout identifies and assesses devices, systems, applications and users across these surfaces and provides unified policy-based enforcement and security orchestration to help mitigate security risks, advanced threats and data breaches. ForeScout's cloud solution for Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides a dynamic, intelligent and policy-based approach that allows enterprises to create a uniform policy once and apply it across their entire environment. Real-time agentless visibility and rich contextual awareness will provide end-customers with insight into the mapping of a user or device across the campus to cloud. The ForeScout cloud solution helps organizations gain visibility and control across their network through a single pane of glass. Benefits include: Avoiding existing campus security challenges translating to the cloud environment; Alleviating the need for deploying disparate cloud security solutions; Reducing operational expenses and training by cutting down on identifying security automation processes to help identify and manage workloads. The ForeScout cloud solution is available now.
