ForeScout Technologies, Inc. Key Developments

ForeScout Announces Advanced Threat Mitigation Capabilities to Enable Rapid Response to APTs and Breaches

ForeScout Technologies, Inc. announced new ControlFabric integrations with several advanced threat detection (ATD) solutions. These integrations allow customers to quickly and automatically contain advanced persistent threats (APTs) and ultimately disrupt their propagation in the corporate network environment. ForeScout's current ecosystem of ATD partners includes vendors such as Bromium, Damballa, Invincea and Palo Alto Networks. ATD solutions help protect organizations against targeted APTs and zero-day malware. By integrating with ForeScout CounterACT via the ControlFabric architecture, ForeScout customers can leverage their NAC environments to automate the mitigation of detected threats and provide an enhanced scope of the attack, ultimately reducing the response time. ForeScout CounterACT works with ATD solutions to provide an effective approach to risk management and threat mitigation. The joint solutions provide real-time visibility and compliance management of devices on the network, effective response to APTs and zero-day threats, and automation to efficiently and accurately mitigate endpoint risks and advanced threats. ForeScout CounterACT™ exemplifies ForeScout's leadership in continuous monitoring and mitigation. Leveraging next-generation NAC technology, the CounterACT platform provides real-time visibility to users, devices, including BYOD, systems and applications and allows IT organizations to centrally apply granular policies to understand their true security posture and to automatically respond to a wide variety of security issues. Powered by ControlFabric™ technology, the platform also enables network, security and management solutions to dynamically exchange information, which, in turn, allows enterprises to respond to issues more effectively and better leverage their existing security investments.

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.
