Likelihood to Recommend

Forescout

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.

Gigamon

Gigamon span port redistribution switches are great for capturing traffic from a single span port and redistributing, decrypting and converting to NetFlow. These devices are taps on steroids and are really great at what they do. I would highly recommend getting one at each location for the core of the network, especially where you want to collect actual packets and conversion to NetFlow, or the like is needed.

Forescout 8.0
Based on 1 answer
They are prompt in their response with a complete resolution once they have identified the problem. Other OEM's generally give stop-gap arrangements and then later come with new upgrade versions. This gives downtime tasks to customers often, which isn't appreciated. Given the criticality of this software, their support is prompt.

Alternatives Considered

Forescout

CounterACT was the product that was able to do exactly what we were looking to accomplish and that was to block non-company owned devices from connecting to our network based on our criteria. It will allow us to decide if a blocked device should be allowed on our network temporarily

Gigamon

Taps and or just using span ports directly to the devices. The Interesting thing about Gigamon is its uniqueness, there are very little devices that are able to do all the functions that Gigamon can perform.
