Defense Information Systems Agency Selects Forescout to Protect Millions of Mission Critical Devices Across Global Networks

  • Multi-year “Comply to Connect” (C2C) program delivers enterprise-wide capabilities to secure DoD networks
  • Forescout provides foundational cybersecurity capabilities for C2C and has been implemented by the Navy and U.S. Marine Corps, the pathfinders for C2C

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 5, 2020 – Forescout Technologies, Inc., the leader in Enterprise of Things security, today announced the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) awarded its channel partner Carahsoft a contract for Forescout licenses to expand cybersecurity across its global enterprise as the initial phase of a multi-million dollar contract award through 2020. Through a phased approach, DISA chose Forescout technology as the foundation of the DoD’s “Comply to Connect” (C2C) initiative, a security framework to provide the highest level of assurance for authentication, authorization, compliance assessment and automated remediation of devices connecting to the DoD Information Network (DoDIN).

“We are proud and excited to be at the core of helping the DoD transition to complete visibility and continuous monitoring of its many large and complex networks and millions of devices,” said Greg Clark, chief executive officer and co-chairman of the Board, Forescout.

Forescout has supported the C2C program from its pilot and early adopter phases at DoD enterprises including DISA, the Marine Corps, the Navy’s Next Generation Enterprise Network (NGEN) and Army Medical Command (MEDCOM). These first C2C pilots have also proven efficiencies in their administration workflows through Forescout’s policy-based orchestration with existing security and management tools. 

C2C is a cybersecurity initiative that ensures trusted, authorized devices are rigorously inspected for malicious code, prohibited software, noncompliance and other risks. This wider array of mission-critical systems defined by U.S. Cyber Command and protected by Forescout includes Internet of Things (IoT) devices and Platform Information Technology (PIT) such as industrial control systems (ICS), weapons systems, autonomous vehicles and medical gear.
