ForeScout Mobile Security Module is the easiest and most economical way for IT security managers to say “yes” to Android and Apple iOS devices on the enterprise network without compromising security.
ForeScout Mobile Security Module runs as an add-on to ForeScout’s market-leading network access control (NAC) platform, ForeScout CounterACT. Together, these two products provide real-time visibility and control of the network—wired and wireless, managed and unmanaged, PCs and handheld devices—and give you special visibility and control over Android and iOS devices.

The ForeScout Mobile Security Module includes plugins and apps that work with Android and iOS devices.
On Android, the ForeScout Mobile app collects hardware, software and configuration information for each device on which it is installed and reports this to the CounterACT appliance. This allows CounterACT to determine the compliance of the device, restrict network access on the basis of that information, and send automatic notifications to users to help them remediate security problems.
On iOS, hardware, software and configuration information is collected by the native iOS operating system and transmitted to the CounterACT appliance via the Apple MDM API and the Apple Push Notification Service (APNs). Additionally, the ForeScout Mobile Security Module can configure iOS policies and profiles and apply them to iOS devices which are connected to the network via WiFi or VPN or which are connected to a broadband carrier (over-the-air).
Features of ForeScout CounterACT with the ForeScout Mobile Security Module include:
ForeScout Mobile Security Module is one of several advanced functions that are available with ForeScout’s ControlFabric architecture.
