Cyber Asset Inventory


Gain complete asset visibility across your attack surface

Attack surface growth is outpacing your security team’s ability to identify, quantify and prioritize risk and exposure. The first step is maintaining an accurate, real-time asset inventory with in-depth device context for all IP-connected assets in one normalized view.

Eliminate error-prone manual processes with continuous, automated discovery, classification and assessment of every device, managed and unmanaged.

100% Asset Visibility with Forescout

As a baseline, this energy company only had visibility into its 50,000 agentable assets. Fragmented information from 32 separate security tools identified closer to 200,000 connected devices.

In just one week, without relying on any software agents, Forescout identified more than 235,000 total assets – revealing an 80% security risk gap over agent solutions and creating a single source of truth.

Query, investigate and analyze connected asset data across a 90-day timeline to prove historical compliance, support incident investigation and identify risks and gaps.

Real-Time Asset Intelligence Access7

Real-Time Asset Intelligence for Better Security and Business Decisions

Many standards, frameworks and regulations require organizations to maintain an accurate asset inventory. To support informed security decisions, you also need rich context about each device. The Forescout Platform collects data on device type, manufacturer, OS configuration, applications installed, patch state, network location, logged-in users, vulnerabilities, criticality and what it’s communicating with. All of this can be continuously synchronized with your configuration management database (CMDB), such as ServiceNow, to prove a wealth of contextual information as assets join and leave the network and accelerate incident response.
