Forescout and OPSWAT Sponsor Webinar on Advanced Compliance Enforcement for Healthcare

CAMPBELL, Calif., December 15, 2014Forescout Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of pervasive network security solutions for Global 2000 enterprises and government organizations, announced that Forescout and OPSWAT will host a webinar to discuss their new collaboration, and how their two solutions work. The webinar will be hosted by Adam Winn, GEARS product manager at OPSWAT, and Kevin Mayer, product manager at Forescout, and will be held on December 16, 2014 at 9am PST.

Attendees to the webinar will learn how OPSWAT GEARS and Forescout CounterACT® can help healthcare organizations enforce compliance regulations to avoid costly breaches and associated penalties.

“IT security professionals, such as those in the healthcare industry, are challenged with high-risk data, complicated environments, tight budgets, regulatory scrutiny and potentially very large fines. Ensuring that every device on the network, including BYOD, is HIPAA compliant is only one of the many IT challenges that must be taken care of 24/7,” said Frank Dickson, principal analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “With users’ skill levels ranging from novice to expert, working hours around the clock and patient lives at stake, it’s paramount that network access is granular and remediation messaging is clear to prevent downtime. Therefore, companies require solutions that provide enhanced and integrated security beyond basic HIPAA compliance requirements (for the healthcare industry) to mitigate risk without hindering end users.”

Join us to learn about the advanced compliance assessment and security risk mitigation features enabled through the integration these two solutions, and see how easily they can be used together to ensure that data is protected and only trusted devices gain access to your network.
