Info Security Products Guide names Forescout Best Overall Security Company of the Year at the 2011 Global Excellence Awards
Forescout Praised for Leadership, Growth and Innovation in Network Access Control
Cupertino, Calif. – February 23, 2011 – Forescout Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of network access control (NAC) for Fortune 1000 enterprises and government organizations, announced today that Info Security Products Guide, the industry’s leading information security research and advisory guide, has awarded the company, Best Overall Security Company of the Year.
More than 50 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated and their average scores determined the 2011 Global Excellence Awards Finalists and Winners. Winners were announced during the awards dinner and presentation on February 16, 2011 in San Francisco attended by the finalists and judges.
This recognition was due in part to Forescout market leadership, growth and innovation. The company, which is the largest independent NAC vendor, recently announced year-over-year bookings growth of 44 percent, as well as profitability achievement for the second half of 2010. Forescout is second only to Cisco in a market which analyst firm Infonetics predicts an impressive 84% growth by 2014.
Unlike traditional NAC products, Forescout’s CounterACT family deploys quickly and provides accelerated results because they are: easy to use, integrated, have built-in policies, are agentless, and require no changes to existing network infrastructure. Forescout has aggressively evolved its product line from supporting 802.1x, wireless and mobile security to advancing its patented ActiveResponse ™ threat management technology – enabling customers to readily preempt zero-day attacks such as Stuxnet, Zeus and Conficker worms.
“Info Security Products Guide’s recognition of Forescout is a testament to the strength of our company and technology,” said Gord Boyce, CEO of Forescout. “This industry honor and our strong double-digit growth are an endorsement of our ability to enable companies to capitalize on operational accessibility, but not at the expense of security.”
