Capabilities for Asset Inventory

The Forescout Platform provides a real-time inventory of every device on your network – without requiring agents. Eliminate the error-prone manual processes to maintain asset inventories, allowing you to make intelligent decisions by automatically discovering every device the moment they connect to your network, giving you a real-time asset repository.

Complete asset inventory

Get a real-time asset inventory across all physical and virtual devices - IoT, IoMT, OT, mobile and network infrastructure - across your campus, data center, cloud and OT networks.

Device auto-classification

Use profiling information to auto-classify devices as they connect to the network - by function and type, operating system and version and/or vendor and model.

Agentless visibility

Gain unparalleled visibility into all IP-connected devices across your extended enterprise the instant they connect to the network – no agents required.

Passive profiling

Leverage passive-only profiling techniques to gain visibility into sensitive IoT, IoMT, OT and critical infrastructure systems without impacting system uptime, introducing operational risk or disrupting critical business processes.

20+ active and passive scanning techniques

Rely on a mix of scanning techniques to provide you with more in-depth information for every connected device.

Efficiently manage the security posture and lifecycle of devices

Use classification attributes to automatically apply security policies for compliance, network access controls, segmentation and incident response.

Share contextual data with security operations, help desk staff and ITAM tools such as ServiceNow

Leverage rich device context to prioritize issues and policy-driven remediation to restrict or block access of non-compliant devices.

Why Forescout?

Required Capabilities for Asset Inventory Forescout
Discover and assess every device on your network Unified platform instantly and automatically discovers every device the instant it connects to the network (IoT, IoMT, ICS/OT and IT)

Automatically classifyies and segments every device

Update asset repository with real-time hardware and software information

Not reliant on SPAN
Periodic scans Eliminates blind spots by not relying on periodic scans

Real-time visibility for every IoT, IoMT, OT and IT device the instant they connect to the network
Continuous awareness and device monitoring Actionable visibility the instant a device connects to the network

Aware of device configuration, including operating system, installed software and vulnerabilities

Automatically enforce security and IT policies
Integration with ITSMs Integrates with ITSM solutions (such as ServiceNow), automating workflows that reduce security risks and operational costs

Shares extensive device properties, configuration information and network context, which keeps your CMDB/asset repository updated in real time without requiring 802.1x

Automatically create “intelligent” incidents within ITSM or Security Operations

Facilitate network and system-level incident responses and remediation actions

Reduce inventory audit costs by automating manual tasks
Keep unauthorized devices out Identifies devices in real time, sharing information with your CMDB and collecting additional properties from the CMDB

Authenticates the device against CMDB asset data, automatically assigning to authorized VLAN

Continuously monitors and creates an IT or security incident ticket if the device deviates from policy

When device is stolen, retired or at its end of life, updating the CMDB tells Forescout to deny network access, and create an incident
