IoT Security


Automate IoT Security and Eliminate Blind Spots for Every Device

Increasing reliance on Internet of Things (IoT) devices for business operations, efficiency, automation and digital transformation initiatives comes with additional risks of an ever-expanding attack surface. Forescout’s zero trust approach provides actionable visibility and automated risk-based segmentation and compliance enforcement of every IoT, OT, Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) and IT device the instant they connect to your network without ever requiring an agent. From connection to a device’s end of life, the Forescout Platform efficiently manages asset inventory and lifecycle management of every device.

Riskiest Devices

The 5 Riskiest Connected Devices in 2023: IT, IoT, OT, IoMT

Forescout Research – Vedere Labs presents its findings about the riskiest devices in enterprise network for 2023, including seven device types that are new to the list this year: VPN gateways and security appliances in IT; NAS and OOBM in IoT; engineering workstations and RTUs in OT; and blood glucose monitors in IoMT.

IoT Security Capabilities

IoT security must be based on a zero trust approach that combines complete device visibility, proactive network segmentation and least-privilege access control of all digital assets – devices, users, apps and workloads.

Complete device visibility and classification

Providing complete visibility into unmanaged and managed IoT, IoMT, OT devices and IP-connected systems the instant they connect to your network.

Real-time continuous monitoring

Providing real-time insight and continuous monitoring of IoT device communications and risky behaviors.

Assessing devices with weak credentials

Assessing and identifying IoT devices with factory-default or weak credentials and automating policy actions to enforce strong passwords.

Dynamic network segmentation

Segmenting devices into trusted zones by enforcing least-privilege access by zero trust policy.

Automated zero trust policy orchestration

Automating unified zero trust policy orchestration across multi-vendor environments and multiple network domains.

Asset inventory and lifecycle management of all devices

Efficiently managing asset inventory and the lifecycle of every device.

Forescout Differentiators – IoT Cybersecurity

Required Capabilities for Implementing IoT Security Forescout
Actionable visibility for every device on your network Unified platform instantly discovers every device the instant they connect to the network - IoT, IoMT, ICS/OT and IT devices
Automated device classification Automatically classifies IoT (and every other device on your network) leveraging three-dimensional classification taxonomy (device function & type, operating system & version, vendor & model)
Automated segmentation Automatically segments based on device classification leveraging passively collected data (device function & type, operating system & version, vendor & model)

Eliminates alert fatigue by automatically taking the action that turns red alerts green
Scale to enterprise Proven to scale with multiple deployments of over 2 million devices

Proven to scale over a thousand locations
