Works great in ensuring that only company owned assets are connected to the network and segregating those unauthorized devices by ensuring they connect to a separate guest network where the guests registrations are signed in by the employee they are visiting thus ensuring there are proper trails that can be followed incase of threats or anything else.

Wherever your organization is trying to protect and safeguard its data and assets from unauthorized access either use of devices that are not our company based or incases of guest they have to be approved by the employee they are visiting to ensure accountability incase of breaches or you need to refer to activities.

It has straightforward integration with end point security platforms; for verifying devices compliance for endpoint guidelines. Its network access control allows us privileged visibility to devices on our network and only authorized devices can connect to our network. It is ideal for large scale IT companies that need to protect their networks from external attacks.

Forescout has been robust enough to mediate security threats on our IT ecosystem (servers for the most part) with impressive automation capabilities. It has resourceful risk scoring algorithms that prioritize critical assets for security protocols, unlike its competitors. It's suitable for the protection of your digital terrain despite the size by continuously running assessments that will go a long way in neutralizing the impact of security breaches. Forescout has however frustrated our teams with the policy-based controls- it isolates devices unnecessarily while eliminating threats.

Discovering and managing assets. Give more network control and provide many features to have effective actions. Based on the configuration Forescout Platform can be very helpful to infrastructure especially over the network devices. More and better way to access the platform should be considered. Forescout Platform is very helpful for any medium and large infrastructure.

Forescount Platform (CounterACT) provides multiple active and passive monitoring techniques which can be very flexible. Integration with other third-party products such as Cisco ACI, AWS and others can be complex and may required expertise to facilitate. Besides, it is also capable to perform asset discovery for OT and IoT environments.

It is well suited in Banking industry and other enterprise companies where it is difficult to manage visibility and compliance in an organization. Telecom companies and IT companies also benefit a lot to get deeper into their network and stop the attack traversing in their network. Dashboards help management to get the complete picture and can be focused on concern points where there are a lot of non-domain systems, non-compliant systems, guests systems, etc.

ForeScout is great on a network where you have authorized assets are able to authenticate to them. If you have a mixed environment where you can't authenticate to devices it is probably less appropriate.

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.
