You are probably interested in realizing the benefits of private and public cloud computing. But as your workloads move to the cloud, how do you assess, classify and control devices and VMs that you can’t see? How do you protect cloud-based workloads that are running on infrastructure not owned and operated by your enterprise? What about security of unmanaged and IoT devices?
HOW FORESCOUT HELPS
Do you confidently discover and control your cloud workloads as they as are created or moved? Can you easily discover, classify and monitor users and devices connected to cloud resources? How can you verify that VMs and cloud instances are assigned to the right security or port groups? ForeScout helps you address these challenges, as well as true-up your VM asset inventory in your CMDB.
With ForeScout CounterACT®, you can extend visibility and control from the campus to your private and public clouds—all with a single pane of glass. Hybrid cloud security becomes a logical extension of how you secure managed, unmanaged and IoT devices in the physical world. We help you improve security and compliance of your virtual assets, regardless of where they reside, using your existing security teams and processes.
ForeScout helps you:
- Discover and classify virtual instances across your hybrid cloud and assesses security posture, in real time—without requiring agents
- Allow, deny or segment virtual machines and cloud instances based on policy compliance
- Enforce security across your hybrid cloud with single-pane manageability

We help you secure your data center and hybrid cloud using your existing security principles and processes, leveraging the products and architectural flexibility that made us a leader in campus cybersecurity. Our physical and virtual appliances let you:
- Discover, classify and monitor devices and VMs in real time as they connect to your physical and virtual networks— without requiring agents
- Perform policy-based device and VM management
- Manage your hybrid clouds without requiring software agents or previous knowledge of devices or VMs
Our approach to cloud security provides a logical extension of the ForeScout solution to enable your existing personnel and processes to manage security of users and devices, anywhere.
SECURE YOUR PUBLIC CLOUD
The ForeScout CounterACT AWS Base Module provides out-of-the-box integration with Amazon EC2. You centrally manage and enforce consistent security policies across campus and cloud environments using the same ForeScout solution and management interface.
Among other things, CounterACT’s policy-based controls let you:
- Gain visibility and assess security posture of your server instances—on-premises and in the public cloud
- Protect your EC2 instances by segmenting or isolating them based on their classification and compliance posture
- Identify and remediate misconfigured or non-compliant EC2 instances and detect and prevent unauthorized access
SECURE YOUR PRIVATE CLOUD
The ForeScout CounterACT VMware® Base Module leverages ForeScout CounterACT® and integrates with the VMware® vSphere® Suite and NSX® platform to provide unified, cross-platform endpoint visibility and automated policy-based enforcement across your virtual and physical infrastructure.
This allows you to:
- Leverage automated VMware security posture and segmentation policies and help ensure VMs adhere to hardening standards
- Discover and classify rogue, unmanaged or non-compliant VMs and ESXi® hosts and help optimize resources and reduce risk
- Manage your physical and virtual server workloads with a single pane
ENTERPRISE SCALE, PERFORMANCE AND RESILIENCE
Manage over a million networked devices with enterprise-scale, performance and availability
ForeScout’s Enterprise Manager enables you to:
- Centrally manage your device policies and deployments at scale with performance
- Provide service continuity for your single or multi-site environments via a failover cluster of CounterACT appliances, without requiring idle standby appliances
- Distribute your workloads in the event of single or multiple points of failure
