Additionally, its solutions help detect advanced threats that may have bypassed their security controls, and give organizations the power to respond in real-time with comprehensive, full-spectrum response.
“Forescout has a very large and loyal customer base, and is considered a key security enabler and partner to some of the largest and most sophisticated organizations, worldwide” said Creed. “With improvements to our incentive programs that increase partner profitability, and a new product pipeline that further enhances the value we can deliver to customers, while providing additional services opportunities, it is clear that the best is yet to come for our global community of partners.”
