ForeScout delivers pervasive network security by allowingorganizations to continuously monitor and mitigate security exposures and cyberattacks. The company's CounterACT appliance dynamically identifies andassesses all network users, endpoints and applications to provide complete visibility, intelligence and policy-based mitigation of security issues. ForeScout's open ControlFabric platform allows a broad range of IT security products and management systems to share information and automate remediation actions. Because ForeScout's solutions are easy to deploy, unobtrusive, flexible and scalable, they've been chosen by over 1,500 enterprises and government agencies. Headquartered in Campbell, California, ForeScout offers its solutions through its network of authorized partners worldwide.

ForeScout CounterACT is a proven, enterprise-scale network security solution that has been adopted by over 1500 enterprises and government organizations. CounterACT natively addresses the first two problems (real-time visibility and continuous monitoring) by identifying and assessing all network users, endpoints and applications in real-time. CounterACT shares this information with other security and management systems that interoperate via ForeScout’s open ControlFabric Platform. This reduces the problem of information silos. Finally, CounterACT brings real-time control and automated remediation to IT security systems that heretofore have been limited to collecting, generating, analyzing or storing information (e.g. SIEM, ATP).

ForeScout CounterACT allows IT organizations to readily understand and control how all users, systems and devices, including mobile devices and VMs, access network resources and applications. Once you configure your security policies within CounterACT, the system automatically:

  • enforces network access policy
  • controls mobile and personal device access
  • eliminates network intrusion threats
  • finds and fixes gaps in endpoint security
  • ForeScout’s CounterACT is fast, flexible and easy for administrators to deploy, manage and maintain. Everything is contained within a single appliance that seamlessly integrates into your existing environment, offering day-one results with no changes to your network.

ForeScout CounterACT forms the foundation for ControlFabric — an open platform that enables ForeScout CounterACT and other solutions to exchange information and resolve a wide variety of network, security and operational issues.

CounterACT includes a range of ControlFabric integrations at no extra charge. These base integrations link CounterACT to network infrastructure (switches, wireless controllers, VPN, routers, directories), endpoints (Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, printers, other devices), Windows update systems (SCCM), and a wide range of software that typically runs on endpoints (antivirus, instant messaging, WMI, etc.). These out-of-the-box ControlFabric integrations give IT managers tremendous power to:

  • discover and classify endpoints
  • track users and applications
  • assess security posture
  • control network access
  • enforce endpoint compliance policy
  • fix security gaps such as broken endpoint security agents
