Industry-leading partnerships help fortify corporate networks against an ever-increasing cyber threat landscape
CAMPBELL, Calif., May 6, 2015 – Forescout Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of continuous monitoring and mitigation solutions for Global 2000 enterprises and government organizations, announced that it will demonstrate extensive integration capabilities leveraging its ControlFabric® architecture with four of its key technology partners at the “ControlFabric Interoperability Demo,” which will take place in Forescout’s booth G20 at Infosecurity Europe, 2-4 June in London.
Forescout ControlFabric is a set of open integration technologies that enables Forescout CounterACT® and other IT solutions to exchange information and efficiently mitigate a wide variety of network, security and operational issues. As a result, IT organizations can get higher return on investment from their existing security investments, efficiently preempt and contain advanced threats, and automate response to targeted attacks and security breaches.
“Over the past couple of years, we have seen incredible success with the growing number of integrations with industry-leading technology partners, and are excited to demonstrate some of the more recent offerings at Infosecurity Europe during our ControlFabric Interoperability Demo,” said Pedro Abreu, chief strategy officer at Forescout Technologies. “The depth and breadth of these integrations have established Forescout ControlFabric as a pragmatic and open integration architecture that helps our customers transform their existing security investments into a more holistic security solution.”
Forescout ControlFabric partners and integrations to be showcased at Infosecurity Europe include:
- Gigamon® – Forescout and Gigamon work together to enable the availability and efficient monitoring of network traffic to obtain real-time visibility and automated control over users, devices, systems, applications, and vulnerability management (VM) accessing network resources and other sensitive data.
- Intel® Security – Forescout integrations with McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® (ePO®), McAfee Vulnerability Manager (MVM), and McAfee Enterprise Security Manager (ESM) enable organizations to reduce risk associated with unauthorized, vulnerable and non-compliant endpoints. Forescout CounterACT ensures that ePO agents are installed, running and up-to-date on corporate systems, triggers real-time MVM scans of endpoints when they connect to the corporate network, and provides up to the minute endpoint security posture and context to ESM. Additionally, Forescout CounterACT leverages the Intel® Security Data Exchange Layer (DXL) to receive threat intelligence from McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange (TIE), and identify malware and infections on connecting endpoints. Upon detection of advanced threats, CounterACT can take policy-based actions to contain infected endpoints and initiate risk mitigation actions.
- LogRhythm® – Forescout and LogRhythm enable IT organizations to gain real-time visibility into the risks and threats on their networks, including mobile and BYOD activity. LogRhythm’s security intelligence platform works in conjunction with CounterACT to rapidly identify endpoint security threats and policy violations. LogRhythm’s SmartResponse™ functionality leverages CounterACT to initiate policy-based automated response to quickly mitigate security issues and drive down mean-time-to-resolution.
- Qualys – As the newest potential partner in the ControlFabric ecosystem, an integration between Forescout CounterACT and Qualys Vulnerability Management will enable IT organizations to improve the timeliness and efficacy of their vulnerability assessments, automate endpoint remediation, and reduce their endpoint attack surface.
