Capabilities

Forescout has “the broadest ICS protocol support of the vendors evaluated” according to the Forrester Wave™: Industrial Control Systems (ICS) Security Solutions, Q4 2021. This extensive protocol knowledge, coupled with ICS-specific threat intelligence and 12+ years of experience deploying our OT solutions to various manufacturing verticals, enables industrial organizations around the globe to secure their digital transformation and lay the foundation for a zero trust architecture across their entire digital terrain, including critical OT and IoT devices and networks.

Automatically and continuously maintain your asset inventory in real time

Visualize and continuously assess all connected assets, their configurations, communication and process behavior, and vulnerabilities. Use hybrid detection methods including passive, active and network location to quickly get a complete inventory of all IT, OT and IoT connected assets.

Reduce downtime with proactive maintenance and faster MTTR

Continuously monitor the network for policy compliance and anomolous behavior.

Monitor and manage your security perimeter

Monitor third-party technicians and remote employees as they enter networks and perform maintenance operations. Go a step further and automatically verify their security posture before granting access to critical assets. Use actionable insights to visualize communications and automatically optimize segmentation so vulnerable devices continue operating securely as interconnectivity increases or changes.

Align with security frameworks and best practices

Effortlessly implement security frameworks such as IEC 62443 and NIST CSF, to securely embark on your digitalization journey and standardize security operations across the shop floor. Leverage MITRE ATT&CK for ICS classification to enable efficient incident response.

Scale across your entire digital terrain

Maximize the value of current investments through flexible deployment options and seamless integration with existing network infrastructure, SIEM/SOC, asset management and other security tools.
