ForeScout Technologies, Inc. Key Developments

ForeScout Announces Pioneer Investments' Deployment of CounterACT as Part of its Integrated Intelligence and Control Architecture

ForeScout Technologies, Inc. announced that Pioneer Investments has successfully deployed ForeScout CounterACT(TM). The solution offers Pioneer agentless capabilities to achieve network visibility across endpoints, obtain real-time intelligence and apply policy-based controls to proactively address threats and mitigate problems with little to no impact on the business. Pioneer Investments is a global investment management firm with more than 2,000 employees and a presence in 27 countries worldwide. Pioneer chose ForeScout to fortify measures to support compliance, improve operational oversight and reduce security risks. The firm wanted a security platform that could provide visibility, granular control and more flexible implementation capabilities for its wired and wireless networks -- ultimately to serve as a control integration and endpoint remediation solution. In addition to its main CounterACT deployment, Pioneer is leveraging the ForeScout ControlFabric(TM) technology to enhance control interoperability and use its resources more effectively. Key benefits Pioneer realized by deploying CounterACT include: Automation, Time and Cost Savings -- The ease of management and high level of support offered by ForeScout saves the IT department at Pioneer significant man-hours in maintaining the solution. Continuous Monitoring and Mitigation -- CounterACT's real-time visibility and policy-based mitigation capabilities help Pioneer identify and address issues in near real time. Integrated Intelligence and Control -- With ForeScout's ControlFabric architecture, Pioneer is able to integrate its existing security solutions with CounterACT, allowing Pioneer to take a more active and holistic approach to network security. This ensures the IT team does not have to micromanage multiple disparate security solutions.
