Overall Satisfaction with Forescout CounterACT

Forescout CounterACT is used throughout the organization. Business problems it addresses are the compliance criteria of endpoints in organization. This is a mandatory requirement from regulatory bodies.
  • Complete visibility of devices connected in your network
  • Non-compliant system managed by Forescout can be controlled by restricting access
  • Implementation with heterogeneous network infrastructure
  • Windows level processes running on endpoints can be identified
  • Restrict non-corporate domain/guests systems connecting to network
  • Integration with patch management tools
  • Grow the Forescout community to help in addressing concern for a larger audience via channels
  • More training and demos for latest FS versions released
  • GUI can be made more interactive and aesthetic in appearance
  • Visibility - where we estimated x number connected in the network but in reality, it was more like 2x on the network.
  • Gives complete breakup of assets identified in segments of the organization. Helps to understand the number of computers, printers, VoIP's, CCTV's, etc
  • Risk of non-domain systems connecting on the network is reduced and the operational tasks can be focused elsewhere.
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.

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 CounterACT Support

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.
