CAMPBELL, Calif. – 29 March 2016 – Forescout Technologies Inc., the pioneer in agentless cybersecurity, has been named a finalist in the SC Awards 2016 Europe for outstanding threat solution products in information security. Forescout CounterACT® is recognised in the Best NAC Solution category, which acknowledges superior products and services that help customers address the most pressing cybersecurity threats. The winners will be announced at the SC Magazine Awards Europe ceremony to be held in London on Tuesday 7th June at a stunning new venue on the Riverside of the Thames, Old Billingsgate.
“Data breaches that compromise people’s data and tarnish company reputations are causing mounting headlines across the globe. This is why it is more important than ever to recognise Europe’s vast army of defenders that stand out as exemplars of excellence, working largely unseen to protect our data,” said Tony Morbin, Editor in Chief, SC Magazine UK.
The SC Magazine Awards Europe are the information security industry’s most prominent recognition. Winners in the Threat Solution categories are decided by an expert panel of judges, hand-picked by SC Magazine UK’s editorial team for their breadth of knowledge and experience in the information security industry. The awards honour both the cybersecurity professionals working in the trenches, and the products and services that help protect today’s corporate world from a myriad of ever-changing threats.
“Companies are constantly under attack, fuelled by the proliferation of the number and different types of devices connecting to the network. Traditional security tools lack visibility of these devices,” said Myles Bray, Vice President of EMEA Sales at Forescout Technologies, Inc., “but Forescout’s innovative agentless approach makes the invisible visible – including Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Coupled with flexible, automated response capabilities and extensive third party integrations, Forescout is uniquely positioned to help organisations protect and secure their network, with optimum efficacy.”
“Cyberattacks seeking to infiltrate and expose sensitive information are a fact of enterprise IT life,” said Tony Morbin, Editor in Chief, SC Magazine UK. “Forescout has demonstrated the ability to execute innovative and comprehensive IT security measures to protect companies from the onslaught of malicious attacks.”
Winners of this year’s SC Magazine Awards Europe will be announced at a gala dinner and award ceremony on Tuesday 7th June at their new home, Old Billingsgate in central London. This is one of the most anticipated IT security events of the year and promises a great celebration as well as invaluable networking opportunities with some of the top corporate IT professionals in the country.
