It has helped with protecting our organizations data from unauthorized devices that may try to connect to our network.
It has also enabled us in keeping separate devices not owned by the organization that connect to our network by putting them in a guest network where the guests registrations are signed by the employee they are visiting.

We procured Forescout Counteract to gain comprehensive 360-degree visibility of the assets that make up our digital architecture. We use it to view the connected assets' statuses and run assessments on them from time to time. We also utilize it extensively to automate security across both in-house IoT and IoMT for our healthcare-based clients. By gaining sufficient context of our digital assets ecosystem from the single Counteract UI, we can respond to security risks more effectively as opposed to independent monitoring.

We use CounterACT to manage all other NAC across all our sites, and we used this for detection and mitigation on Layer 2 switches only at this time but the plan is to start to use it for remediations also!

CounterAct is used to protect our network from unauthorized devices connecting to our network. We use it to ensure that only authorized and company owned assets are able to connect. We also use it to enable a guest network and move unauthorized machines to our guest network where we use the CounterACT guest registration system to enforce guest registration. Guest registration requires that a guest is approved by the employee they are visiting.

Forescout CounterAct is being used by the IT department. The main reason behind the purchase of Forescout was for Network Access Control. We wanted to make sure any device connected to our network that was not property of our company to be segregated off our company network and pushed directly to a separate network with only internet access.
