Forescout Delivers New Levels of Cyber Confidence and Control for Connected Assets

Forescout Risk and Exposure Management continuously identifies and prioritizes potential risks across all cyber assets, managed and unmanaged

RSA Conference – SAN FRANCISCO – May 6, 2024 Forescout Technologies, Inc., a global cybersecurity leader, today announced Forescout Risk and Exposure Management (REM), a comprehensive, AI-enhanced asset intelligence solution. Forescout REM provides enterprises with a new automated and multi-factor risk-prioritization approach to remediate vulnerabilities and strengthen the security posture across the attack surface.

The enterprise attack surface from connected assets, including unmanaged devices, is outpacing security teams’ ability to protect critical digital assets. The rate of expansion and volume of security issues from siloed tools leaves teams in a reactive stance, while obsolete technology and unpatched vulnerabilities that are often undetected or forgotten are easy targets for attacks.

“Security teams need a better way to proactively prioritize asset and risk management and prevent an overreliance on reactive security tools that alert when threats against assets have already occurred. This growing challenge has put security teams on their back foot for far too long,” said Barry Mainz, CEO, Forescout. “Forescout Risk and Exposure Management provides the way for enterprises to gain comprehensive attack surface visibility, prioritize risk, and proactively prioritize the risks that matter to their businesses.”

Forescout REM helps organizations garner a new level of cybersecurity confidence and control by identifying complete asset attack surface exposures. Enterprises can now accurately assess, classify, and quantify the risk severity and exploitability of every connected asset, managed or unmanaged. Asset visibility is essential to safeguarding digital environments and Forescout REM empowers security professionals with a comprehensive understanding of their network infrastructure and the many unmanaged assets that fill in the blind spots of their attack surface.

With Forescout REM, security leaders can maximize efficiency and align security strategies with business objectives by providing intuitive, time-based insights into cyber asset risk history.
  • Prioritizes Risk: Forescout REM strategically assesses and prioritizes asset risk to inform better security and business decisions. It uses multi-factor risk scoring for continuous monitoring and prioritization of potential risks. Forescout REM provides a data-driven understanding of cyber risk and the enterprise security posture to prevent threats and ensures business continuity by focusing on critical risks affecting key assets.
  • Mitigates Threats: Forescout REM enhances risk posture with recommended actions for continuous compliance. It improves the organization’s risk posture with actionable mitigation plans to ensure compliance standards are met. Harnessing the power of the Forescout Platform, Forescout REM empowers security teams to deploy mitigation plans proactively, enhancing customer trust and securing a competitive advantage.
  • Context Narration: Forescout REM uses a generative AI LLM (large language model) to articulate intricate patterns in the risk factor data that humans may overlook. Detailed descriptions of risk factors associated with specific assets, including vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, and threats lead to more precise risk management strategies.
