CAMPBELL, Calif. – January 21, 2015 – Forescout Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of continuous monitoring and mitigation solutions for Global 2000 enterprises and government organizations, today announced that James Tarala, principal consultant at Enclave Security, and Scott Gordon, chief marketing officer at Forescout, will participate in a new webinar session to discuss how network access control (NAC) has evolved to meet a number of requirements in the areas of operational intelligence, endpoint compliance assessment, access control, threat protection and even incident response.
The Forescout sponsored webinar, entitled “Mapping Next-Generation NAC to the Critical Security Controls,” will be held on February 5, 2015 at 10am PDT. The webinar will feature new research from the SANS whitepaper titled “The Critical Security Controls: What’s NAC Got to Do with IT?”, and will examine how next-generation NAC has evolved from a straightforward admission control tool to a robust set of security capabilities that map to a number of the Critical Security Controls (CSC). It provides a range of endpoint discovery, assessment, enforcement and remediation capabilities and other ways to control network access from new and unknown devices while achieving the goal of automation that is the philosophy behind the CSCs. Attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the whitepaper.
