Forescout Enables IT Organizations to Automate Security Visibility and Control While Going Green and Saving Green
Cupertino, Calif. — June 29, 2011 — In conjunction with the recent report, “The Forrester Wave™: Network Access Control, Q2 2011,” which ranked Forescout Technologies the top rated performer in both strength of current product offering and strategy, Forescout invites IT organizations to trade in their current NAC product and take advantage of Forescout’s award-winning CounterACT Virtual Appliance at an attractive discount. With Forescout network access control (NAC), organizations can realize the productivity and connectivity benefits of anytime, anywhere, any means access while automating visibility and control over who, how, when and what devices are connecting to their enterprise.
From now through September 26, 2011, customers of Cisco, Juniper, Bradford, Symantec and other NAC products can move up to Forescout at an attractive discount. This offer applies to end user’s licensed active NAC products under maintenance – other terms and conditions apply. Resellers and systems integrators are encouraged to offer their customers the means to “go green and save green.”
“Forescout is the market leader as proven by our enterprise-class functionality and by the unprecedented number of competitive wins in commercial, government and education accounts,” said Brant Kennedy, vice president of worldwide sales at Forescout. “We have demonstrated that we are customer-driven and this competitive trade-in offer will give IT/security decision makers exactly what they are asking for – the market leading solution with virtual appliance flexibility at a compelling value.”
Forescout CounterACT delivers unparalleled usability, flexibility, integration, interoperability and scale. Since the solution identifies all devices accessing the network, including mobile and personal devices, it assesses security posture assessment, performs endpoint compliance and remediation, and monitors for post-network admission threats by uniformly applying security policies across diverse network and security infrastructures – dynamically and without requiring agents.
The virtual appliance allows customers to take advantage of rapid provisioning, flexible implementation and on-demand capacity leveraging their VMware investment. CounterACT physical and virtual appliances perform identically and can operate together, centrally controlled by Forescout CounterACT Enterprise Manager, which is also available as a virtual appliance, to manage over 250,000 devices from one console. At any point under maintenance, CounterACT virtual appliance customers can increase capacity on-demand by applying more resources or VMs with Forescout’s investment protection license upgrade program.
