Damage is done
before you know it:

68% of breaches are not discovered within six months

Average time to contain a cyber attack is 31 days

Ponemon Institute: “2014 — A Year of Mega-Breaches” and “2014 Global Report on the Cost of Cyber Crime”


The Number of Unmanaged
Devices Is Exploding:

Dec 2014: “Within two years, 90% of all IT networks will have an IoT-based security breach”

IDC, December, 2014


Fragmented security
systems let attackers in:

“70 to 90% of all malicious incidents could have been prevented or found sooner if existing logs and alerts had been monitored”

Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report

What's Not working

Traditional IT
controls rely on:

  • Endpoint security software
  • Periodic vulnerability scans
  • Disjointed security products


Resulting in:

  • Poor visibility and control over all network endpoints, especially agentless BYOD/IoT devices
  • Lack of real-time monitoring and continuous diagnostics
  • Lack of information sharing between security products, diminishing control
  • Lack of automation, delaying advanced threat response and containment

Our Solution

How ForeScout solves it

  • Discovers corporate, BYOD, IoT and rogue devices
  • Enforces network access based on user, device and policy
  • Finds and fixes vulnerabilities on managed and unmanaged endpoints
  • Rapidly responds to incidents without human intervention

What makes ForeScout unique

  • Agentless technology detects and mitigates “invisible” BYOD and IoT devices
  • Continuous monitoring and diagnostics vs. vulnerability snapshots
  • Integration with over 70 network, security, mobility and IT management products
  • Proven ability to manage 1,000,000 endpoints for a single customer

Case Studies

“With ForeScout, we did not have to take a piecemeal deployment because it was not inline, had agentless options and worked with our wired and wireless implementation.”
