The alliance combines the real-time endpoint visibility, profiling and remediation capabilities of ForeScout CounterACT® with multiple Palo Alto Networks® products to limit data breaches, detect advanced threats and take automated remediation actions. Joint capabilities are made possible through the following Extended Modules that enable threat intelligence sharing:
ForeScout Extended Module for Palo Alto Networks WildFire: ForeScout CounterACT® and Palo Alto Networks WildFire™ work together to leverage the best-of-breed capabilities of each solution. CounterACT provides the unique ability to see and control devices, including non-traditional devices, the instant they connect to the network. WildFire leverages a malware analysis environment to identify new and unknown malware and exploits on the network. With the ForeScout Extended Module for Palo Alto Networks WildFire, the combined solution improves visibility and real-time intelligence, detects advanced threats and zero-day malware, provides a rapid response to compromised endpoints and automates response to identified threats.
ForeScout Extended Module for Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewall: The ForeScout Extended Module for Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewall allows ForeScout to exchange rich visibility and contextual information about users and devices with Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewall. This enables Next-Generation Firewall to better segment resources on a need-to-know basis, assign appropriate access regardless of location and create granular access policies based on user and device context. As a result organizations can reduce their overall attack surface, prevent unauthorized access to sensitive resources and minimize malware proliferation and data breaches.
