ForeScout CEO on Internet of Things
“As CEO of ForeScout Technologies Inc., which provides technology for continuous monitoring of networks, T. Kent Elliott says he has to anticipate the next generation of vulnerabilities to make sure the company is well-prepared to address them. So what does he believe is the most significant emerging risk? The Internet of Things.
‘The Internet of Things, the wearables, toasters, lamps, refrigerators that are all going to have IP addresses – they’re all going to be on the network, and they are going to become a serious security problem, and that’s going to happen very quickly,’ Elliott says. ‘All those devices are not going to be as sophisticated as the smart phones that we use. They’re going to have simplistic software.’”

Technology Solutions to Address unwanted Users, Devices and Applications
Description: This webinar features new research in a Bloor Research report by Fran Howarth, which looks at how next-generation NAC technologies have become essential tools in the security arsenal for preempting rogue user, device and application riska and ensuring that sensitive data is kept safe.
Enabling pervasive network security
Description: An interactive webinar that examines recent cyber defense research and explores the real-world application of next-gen NAC to enable pervasive network security.
With workforce mobility, bring your own device (BYOD) into the workplace, and guest access into your network, enterprises are realizing how important it is to track and monitor who and what is accessing the network. We’ve recently seen examples of how rogue devices have caused significant damage through gaining access to corporate infrastructure through network vulnerabilities. And, it’s alarming how easy it is for this to happen. A rogue or unknown device connects onto what you thought was a protected network, gains access and proceeds to cause often irrevocable damage which can result in millions of dollars to your business. Can you afford for this to happen?
- How do you know what devices are accessing your network?
- How do you detect a rogue device?
- What can you do to prevent a threat in your network and minimize the risk?
Architecting a Flexible Strategy for Securing Enterprise and Personal Mobile Devices
Phil Hochmuth, security program analyst at IDC
Scott Gordon, chief marketing officer at ForeScout
This webinar examines BYOD trends and risks, the mobile security landscape, policy development and control options. The session will also present a tiered service approach to enterprise mobile security where complementary controls can offer necessary network and device level defenses to enable IT organizations to realize mobility advantages and reduce security and compliance exposures.
- Real-world issues, considerations and operational impact
- Policy development processes to tolerate, support or embrace BYOD
- Why combine NAC, MDM and other technical controls
- How to devise tiered security service strategy

SANS: Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation: Making It Work
Government agencies are very early in the process of adopting the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program. The good news is: Those that are actually implementing CDM capabilities are experiencing better security as a result. To find out how well this program is being accepted by government agencies, SANS conducted a survey of government-focused IT professionals during the months of April and May to determine their awareness of the CDM guidance and their levels of implementation.
