ForeScout Technologies, Inc. Key Developments

ForeScout Technologies, Inc. Expands Device Visibility Platform to Secure the Extended Enterprise

ForeScout Technologies announced new foundational innovations in ForeScout CounterACT® 8 that raise the bar on device visibility and control to mitigate risk, reduce the attack surface and automate incident response across the extended enterprise network – from the campus to data center, cloud and critical infrastructure. The enhanced ForeScout device visibility platform adds increased scalability, cloud-based device intelligence, IoT device assessment and flexible centralized licensing to help enterprises see and control more than five billioni IP-connected devices, including traditional, mobile, virtual, IoT and operational technology (OT). In the last year, organizations have had to keep pace with the rapid growth of devices while managing security hygiene and compliance. Companies are discovering up to 60 percentii more devices on their network than previously known with an increasing majority that cannot support management and security agents. Threat actors have also begun to exploit the expanded attack surface represented by non-traditional IoT and OT devices as entry points into the enterprise. To solve these challenges, ForeScout has expanded its device visibility platform to deliver the following key features and benefits: Expanded device visibility: The platform now provides better insight into some of the fast growing enterprise devices, including industrial and critical infrastructure systems, IPv6 addressable devices and devices managed by cloud controllers such as Cisco Meraki. Increased device intelligence: Launched in July 2017, the ForeScout Device Cloud has grown to be one of the crowd-sourced device repositories in the world, now housing more than three million enterprise devices from more than 500 customers that share anonymized device insight. ForeScout’s platform uses the data to analyze device types and publish new and improved device profiles for better auto-classification. Additionally, ForeScout’s platform now includes a new IoT risk assessment capability that allows organizations to identify devices with default or weak credentials and automate policy actions to ensure compliance and mitigate risks. Lastly, the device visibility platform adds new passive-only discovery and profiling to provide organizations with real-time OT and industrial device inventory without introducing operational risk or impacting reliability. Improved scalability and deployment: Improved management scale from one million to two million devices per single deployment allows enterprises to keep pace with device growth. They can also optimize rack space and data center utilization by managing up to 20,000 devices on a single 1U appliance with full 10Gbps traffic monitoring. A new virtual deployment option includes KVM support, in addition to VMware and Hyper-V. The new auto IP-allocation feature allows customers to automate IP distribution and management across a multi-appliance cluster and reduce manual administrative tasks. Flexible purchasing and deployment options: New ForeScout Flexx licensing provides customers choice and simplifies portability and entitlement management by enabling them to purchase ForeScout’s CounterACT and Enterprise Manager platform as a centralized software license.
