ForeScout CounterACT

ForeScout CounterACT is well suited for a company looking to strengthen their network security. It has allowed us to be confident that there is not a rogue device connecting directly into our network to gain access to company information. It may not be suitable to a company with a small IT department as it does require time up front to initially configure and on an on-going basis to manage.

Alternatives Considered

ForeScout CounterACT

We selected CounterACT because it didn't require 802.1x and it didn't require any switch upgrades. To use 802.1x we would have to assume all endpoints are guilty until proven innocent. With CounterACT we can detect quickly if endpoints are not compliant and remediate without the user knowing.

  • It has provided security to a deeper level.
  • Auditors have acknowledged very tight security with the addition of CounterACT.
