“Improvements in network security manageability are more than theory. Several companies have made notable strides across all three phases of management evolution – visibility, implementation and automation – and ForeScout ranks among them,” said Frank Dickson, industry principal analyst, network security at Frost & Sullivan. “ForeScout’s CounterACT platform and the advancement of its ControlFabric architecture enable greater opportunity for customers and partners to materially advance security management.”

According to a recent Frost & Sullivan survey of 12,396 information security professionals, 75 percent “believe network monitoring and intelligence will provide significant improvements to system and network security.” The message from the marketplace is clear: administrators of security technologies need tools that simplify and automate the task of managing security. Organisations need to think beyond reacting to exposures and explore technical mechanisms that better leverage their existing infrastructure and arsenal of point security products. As such, security platforms must provide greater visibility, context and integrated management functionality across multiple security technologies. ForeScout’s CounterACT platform, which provides visibility, control and mitigation, and its ControlFabric architecture, which enables interoperability between network and security infrastructure, deliver such network security innovation today.

We encourage IT management to request a demonstration to see first-hand how ForeScout can be a game changer for their organisation.”
