Forescout enlisted Miercom, a leading independent testing firm and consultancy, to provide unbiased, hands-on testing of Forescout CounterACT’s capabilities. Among other things, Miercom tested CounterACT’s capabilities and effectiveness in the following areas*:
- Visibility: “CounterACT promptly discovered and provided full visibility of 100 percent of the endpoints in the network environment tested.”
- Speed of detection and classification of endpoints: “500 endpoints were detected and fully classified in less than five seconds.”
- Agentless visibility and control: “CounterACT provided real-time visibility into corporate, BYOD and guest endpoints on the network. Visibility, endpoint compliance and host/network controls were completed without the installation of endpoint agents.”
- Posture assessment and compliance monitoring: “CounterACT’s compliance assessment policies provided real-time information about endpoint security posture and state changes.”
The results of this testing are now available. Complete the form to the right to download the report.
