As businesses worldwide scramble to adapt their cybersecurity protocols and support today’s expanded mobile workforce, bad actors are stepping up efforts. Attacks are on the rise as IT organizations focus on maintaining secure business operations.
Securely Maintain Business Continuity with a Remote Workforce

Discover and identify all remote devices
Beyond user and VPN authentication, it is essential to be able to identify devices and also categorize them as corporate-issued or personal. Forescout helps:
- Identify devices in real time—even VPN-connected devices
- Keep devices off your network that shouldn’t be there
- Block unsanctioned BYOD systems
Extend compliance to remote devices
Given the lax security on most home networks, device hygiene is paramount. Essential posture checks must occur before allowing devices on the corporate network. Forescout helps:
- Check if security agents, device patches and software are up to date
- Remediate noncompliant devices within the remote network
- Enforce access controls based on policy
Continuously monitor traffic
Continuous traffic monitoring and policy enforcement are essential to prevent cyber incidents. Best practices, such as least privilege access, must be enforced. Forescout helps:
- Monitor devices that connect through VPNs
- Alert users of compliance issues automatically
- Terminate noncompliant VPN connections
