CAMPBELL, Calif., October 10, 2014 — Forescout Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of pervasive network security solutions for Global 2000 enterprises and government organizations, today announced that Fran Howarth, senior analyst at Bloor Research, will participate in a new webinar session to discuss approaches to controlling network access and mitigating risk.
The Forescout sponsored webinar, entitled “Defending Against the Rogue: Technology Solutions to Address unwanted Users, Devices and Applications,” will be held on October 14, 11:30am PDT. The webinar will feature new research from a Bloor Research report by Howarth and will examine how next-generation NAC technologies have become essential tools in the security arsenal for preempting rogue-user, device and application risk, while ensuring that sensitive data is kept safe. Forescout Systems Engineering Manager, Toni Buhrke, will join Howarth to demonstrate how next-generation NAC provides the visibility and control required to secure corporate networks against rogue devices.
The webinar will focus on the following:
- Next-generation NAC’s ability to provide visibility across the entire network to ensure that rogue devices, applications and users are effectively controlled and security issues efficiently resolved
- Continuous monitoring and mitigation – which allows organizations to ensure network access and endpoint security policies are always enforced
- Integration with other security tools – wireless, MDM, SIEM, and advanced threat detection solutions that enable real-time actionable threat intelligence
- Centralized management – ensuring implementations can be effectively managed and policies enforced
