By 2020 there will be 28 billion connected devices—20 billion of which will be IoT devices that are prone to security attacks.
Securing them will be key to your organization’s success and it begins with agentless visibility.
What Is Your X-Factor?
- Before IoT there were 3.5X more devices than the number of employees in an organization
- With IoT that’s expected to go up to 10X. Higher X-Factor = Higher security risk!
- Many organizations underestimate their X-Factor, thereby opening up vulnerabilities
Do you know what IoT is doing to your X-Factor? Request a ForeScout demo to find out.
ForeScout’s agentless approach has helped companies discover up to 60% more devices on their networks.
HOW FORESCOUT HELPS
See and control IoT devices that are invisible to traditional security products
Don’t let IoT become a launching pad for DDoS or pivot attacks. ForeScout’s IoT solution provides agentless visibility, classification and control of IoT devices, allowing you to:
