LONDON, UK – 10 June 2015 – Forescout Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of continuous monitoring and mitigation solutions that help enterprises prevent and respond to cyberthreats, is pleased to announce that Forescout CounterACT® was recognised by a panel representing the audience of SC Magazine, as the winning solution in the EXCELLENCE AWARDS: THREAT SOLUTIONS Best NAC Solution category at the 2015 SC Europe Awards. The announcement was made on Tuesday 2nd June 2015 at the SC Magazine Awards Gala held at The Ballroom Grosvenor House on Park Lane, London. CounterACT was judged and won against solutions from Cryptzone, Hexis Cyber Solutions and Trustwave.
Forescout CounterACT exemplifies Forescout’s leadership in continuous monitoring and mitigation. Leveraging next-generation network access control (NAC) technology, the CounterACT platform provides real-time visibility to users, devices including bring your own device (BYOD), systems, and applications. It allows IT organisations to centrally apply granular policies to understand their true security posture and to respond automatically to a wide variety of security issues. Powered by ControlFabric® technology, the platform also enables network, security and management solutions to dynamically exchange information, which, in turn, allows enterprises to respond to issues more effectively and better leverage their existing security investments.
“Network security is top-of-mind with companies across the board as the explosive growth in personal device use on corporate networks shows no signs of slowing. And when it comes right down to it, you can’t stop what you can’t see,” said Michael DeCesare, CEO and president of Forescout. “We’re pleased to be recognized by SC Magazine, as this award really acknowledges our ability to share actionable intelligence between previously disparate security solutions and the critical role that Forescout plays in utilizing that information, providing continuous network visibility and threat remediation capabilities.”
Each year, hundreds of products are entered in the EXCELLENCE AWARDS: THREAT SOLUTIONS categories. Each product is judged by a panel representing a cross-section of SC Magazine readership, which is comprised of large, medium and small enterprises from all major vertical markets including financial services, healthcare, government, retail, education and other sectors. Entrants are narrowed down to a select group of finalists before undergoing a rigorous final judging process to determine the winner in each category.
“It’s more important than ever to recognise the tireless efforts of the men and women across the globe who work to combat these threats and provide cyber security. CounterACT is a significant achievement and one that shows Forescout’s dedication to innovation and protecting against the ever-changing threat landscape,” said Tony Morbin, editor-in-chief of SC Magazine UK.
