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 Connected Devices in 2023: IT, IoT, OT, IoMT

Discover the latest research on critical IT, IoT, OT, and IoMT devices within enterprise networks in 2023. Join Daniel Dos Santos, Head of Security Research at Forescout, to gain exclusive insights into inherent risks and actionable strategies for effective mitigation. 

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

IoT Cybersecurity Customer Confidence

“The whole time-consuming process has now completely disappeared. Effectively, the user makes that change, and the Forescout Platform just deals with it, and we don’t have to get involved at all. Our users are happier because they don’t see any interruption to the service. It’s completely transparent to them.”

Bernard Crane Infrastructure Architect Boden

“Forescout gives us the critical integrity piece of the CIA triad. Without integrity, the other two are of no value. You need to be able to trust your systems when they tell you your data is confidential and available. The Forescout platform lets us know whether their data can be trusted.”

Richard White Cybersecurity Architect Tennessee Department of Transportation
