Northern Health and Social Care Trust Selects ForeScout CounterACT for Real-time Network Visibility and Control of Endpoints

ForeScout Technologies, Inc. announced that Northern Health and Social Care Trust selected ForeScout CounterACT™ to achieve greater visibility and control over the ever-growing number of devices accessing the organization's network that are neither Northern Trust-owned nor managed. Northern Trust needed to gain visibility and control over the devices connecting to its network – including medical, clinical engineering and building management system (BMS) devices. Without this level of visibility, they faced significant risk in terms of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) network security and governance, as an ICT security incident potentially impacts the delivery of health and social care services to patients and clients. They looked for a solution that could secure its 15,000 endpoints across 150 sites that was not dependent on additional equipment or specific software version requirements and selected ForeScout CounterACT. CounterACT provides device visibility and security scan and is capable of running a risk assessment of devices connected to the Trust's network - without having to install anything onto the individual devices - was seen as a significant factor in the organization's decision to purchase the ForeScout platform.

Sutton and East Surrey Water Deploys ForeScout CounterACT for Real-time Network Visibility, Security Compliance and Control Automation

ForeScout Technologies, Inc. announced that Sutton and East Surrey Water has successfully deployed ForeScout CounterACT. The solution allows SESW to achieve comprehensive, real-time visibility of its internal network, to gain a clear dashboard that shows compliance status and to enhance internal threat identification and remediation capabilities. In addition, interoperability with McAfee via ForeScout ControlFabric architecture helps to ensure appropriate endpoint protection across endpoints. ForeScout not only exceeded the requirements, but also maximized internal security compliance by delivering greater operational oversight of authorized and unauthorized users, devices and software on SESW's network. CounterACT exceeded SESW's compliance requirements, while requiring minimal man-hours to maintain the solution. More importantly, ForeScout's ControlFabric architecture enables CounterACT and other IT systems to exchange information, allowing SESW to achieve a more holistic security posture. SESW capitalizes on these opportunities by integrating CounterACT with its McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) centralized security management software and anti-virus solutions.
