Cupertino, Calif. – February 18, 2009 – Forescout Technologies, the leading provider of network access control (NAC) for global enterprises and government organizations, today announced a buyback program designed to help customers successfully continue forward with their network security strategies by replacing NAC appliances purchased from Mirage Networks. Mirage was recently acquired by Trustwave, a managed services provider focusing on information security and compliance.
The Forescout Buyback Program offers customers a direct credit per appliance based upon the specific CounterACT replacement appliance(s) selected. This program will be available through December 31, 2009. For details, go to www.forescout.com/buyback.
“The program offers Mirage customers a way to continue forward with their network security strategies by moving to CounterACT for centralized network discovery, access control and compliance management," said Gord Boyce, president of Forescout. ” Mirage customers considering a move to managed services will likewise benefit from our partnership with the global leader, Verizon Business, announced by Verizon back in August 2008. We are pleased that competitors have realized that some businesses prefer adopting NAC via a managed service and are now following Verizon and Forescout’s lead."
Boyce concluded by saying:”Security managers today see a growing need for port-based access control with built-in threat prevention, auto-remediation and centralized enforcement. From Conficker malware to Fannie Mae insider attacks, the security threats and risk to their businesses seem to have grown in the presence of economic decline. Perhaps this is why Fortune 500 companies and federal organizations – confident in Forescout’s technology, vision and corporate leadership – continue to standardize on CounterACT to protect and manage access to their networks from the inside out."
