ForeScout Technologies, Inc. Key Developments

Sutton and East Surrey Water Deploys ForeScout CounterACT for Real-time Network Visibility, Security Compliance and Control Automation

ForeScout Technologies, Inc. announced that Sutton and East Surrey Water has successfully deployed ForeScout CounterACT. The solution allows SESW to achieve comprehensive, real-time visibility of its internal network, to gain a clear dashboard that shows compliance status and to enhance internal threat identification and remediation capabilities. In addition, interoperability with McAfee via ForeScout ControlFabric architecture helps to ensure appropriate endpoint protection across endpoints. ForeScout not only exceeded the requirements, but also maximized internal security compliance by delivering greater operational oversight of authorized and unauthorized users, devices and software on SESW's network. CounterACT exceeded SESW's compliance requirements, while requiring minimal man-hours to maintain the solution. More importantly, ForeScout's ControlFabric architecture enables CounterACT and other IT systems to exchange information, allowing SESW to achieve a more holistic security posture. SESW capitalizes on these opportunities by integrating CounterACT with its McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) centralized security management software and anti-virus solutions.

ForeScout Enhances Access and Threat Management Through Integration With Palo Alto Networks Next-Gen Firewalls and WildFire

ForeScout Technologies, Inc. announced interoperability between ForeScout CounterACT(TM) and Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls and WildFire(TM) to secure network and application access, enforce endpoint compliance and fortify threat management. These integrations, enabled via ForeScout's ControlFabric(TM) architecture, allow mutual customers of ForeScout and Palo Alto Networks to enforce user- and role-based access to network resources and web applications, to ensure endpoint compliance, and to identify and contain advanced persistent threats (APTs) and zero-day attacks. ForeScout CounterACT works with Palo Alto Networks WildFire to provide mutual customers with real-time visibility and compliance management of devices on enterprise networks, effective response to APTs and zero-day threats, and automation to efficiently mitigate APTs and reduce mean-time-to-resolution. WildFire provides an end-to-end approach to detecting modern cyberattacks and APTs that rely on stealth, persistence and the skilled avoidance of traditional security defenses. It utilizes a malware analysis environment in which new and unknown malware and exploits can run and be identified. Once an attack is detected, the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewall informs CounterACT of the affected systems, allowing CounterACT to detect and quarantine infected endpoints on the enterprise network. Download the CounterACT /WildFire solution brief. ForeScout CounterACT works with Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls to deliver comprehensive insight into corporate and personal devices accessing and on a network in order to effectuate bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies, enforce endpoint compliance and mitigate risks.

ForeScout Technologies, Inc. Partners with McAfee to Deliver Dynamic Endpoint Protection

ForeScout Technologies, Inc. announced it has partnered with McAfee, part of Intel Security, to provide a new and enhanced interoperability between ForeScout CounterACT(TM) and McAfee solutions. The integrations will showcase the combined abilities of ForeScout products, McAfee products and the McAfee Data Exchange Layer (DXL) to enable customers to protect infrastructure while supporting initiatives such as bring your own device (BYOD). ForeScout CounterACT will leverage the McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange (TIE) to make enforcement and remediation decisions based on relevant security information shared between endpoints, gateways and other security products. This rapid information dissemination is part of a more proactive, integrated approach to fortifying a security posture. ForeScout's pervasive network security platform, CounterACT, enables IT organizations to efficiently address network visibility, access control, endpoint compliance and threat management challenges in today's increasingly complex enterprise networks. McAfee TIE solutions combining ForeScout CounterACT and other McAfee products to be showcased at FOCUS 14 include: McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange (TIE) and Data Exchange Layer (DXL). Interoperability - ForeScout will demonstrate CounterACT interoperability with McAfee TIE by leveraging McAfee DXL and how CounterACT can onboard a BYOD laptop and verify the hashes of running processes against the McAfee TIE's file reputation repository. CounterACT can then apply appropriate access policy and remediation actions based on whether or not any malicious files are detected. This interoperability showcases how organizations can extend their security controls to BYOD laptops that may not be running McAfee endpoint protection agents. McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) Software Integration - Updated to support McAfee ePO 5.1.1, CounterACT integrates bi-directionally, consuming information about endpoint properties and notifying McAfee ePO of changes. Both systems can then take action. For example, CounterACT detects devices as they connect to the network, validates that the device and user are authorized, and then assesses the device security posture, including whether or not the McAfee ePO host agent is installed, running and up-to-date. When non-compliance is identified, CounterACT can inform McAfee ePO to take action, or CounterACT can attempt to remediate the violation directly. In addition, ForeScout will showcase how CounterACT can take quarantine actions based on malware or other violations detected by McAfee ePO software, including new malware detections identified using McAfee TIE. McAfee Vulnerability Manager (MVM) integration - The new integration between ForeScout and MVM harnesses CounterACT's real-time network visibility and automated controls for more comprehensive, efficient and timely vulnerability assessment and risk mitigation. CounterACT informs McAfee MVM as soon as a device connects to the network, thereby enabling real-time vulnerability scanning of endpoints, including transient devices that may be missed by periodic polling. CounterACT then leverages the real-time MVM scan information for policy-based access control and remediation, such as quarantining or remediating vulnerable systems. This integration supports MVM version 7.5 and above.
