Better intergration with patch management tools.

Its automation capabilities have also enabled us to depend less on the operations teams hence saving time as it's faster and also saving the operational cost of having people around in case of threats.

When I got here, they already had this product in place, so I was not part of the final decision, but after using this for a couple of years, I can say that it was an intelligent decision for the business!!

Heterogeneous compatibility with switches and other network infrastructure setup is a major advantage. There are many companies where there is a legacy network combined with different OEM deployed. Integration of network devices like switches, FW, routers, AP's gives complete details of endpoints connected in which segment and on which switch and respective port numbers to. Control action to manageable systems reduces a lot of dependency on the operations team.

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.

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.
