ForeScout Technologies, a leading Internet of Things (IoT) security company, has 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 billion IP-connected devices, including traditional, mobile, virtual, IoT and operational technology (OT).
“The industry has a massive visibility problem that is only growing as the number of corporate unmanaged IP-connected devices continues to explode. Enterprises can’t protect their networks if they don’t know what’s on their networks,” said Michael DeCesare, CEO and president, ForeScout Technologies. “The result of two years of engineering innovation, our enhanced device visibility platform represents a step forward and sets a foundation for the deep, scalable device visibility and control required to secure the new generation of enterprise networks.”
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 percent 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:
