Profile, Segment, Comply. Welcome to
Context-Aware Network Segmentation.
Dynamic network segmentation is a must have to balance system performance, boost compliance by limiting access to appropriate resources, and block east-west traffic to contain breaches. In this whitepaper, Dynamic Segmentation Is a Must-Have for Digital Businesses, Zeus Kerravala of ZK Research discusses the critical relationship between visibility and dynamic network segmentation in maintaining continuous compliance.
Assess and segment devices on the fly using real-time device context
The ForeScout platform uses real-time device context to automate policy-based assignment and enforcement of access control lists and VLANs.
- Continuously discover, profile and monitor physical and virtual devices—without requiring agents—to segment according to your business needs
- Dynamically assign devices to segments to address changes in device behavior, security posture or network modifications
- Integrate with your wired/wireless switches, VPNs, cloud-based management systems, and NGFWs to boost ROI
Florida Medical Center Case Study
One of Central Florida’s largest and most prestigious medical centers uses the ForeScout platform to establish an accurate device inventory, secure its networks and automate regulatory compliance.
|Inability to “see” all devices. Limited context available for making appropriate segmentation decisions.||Agentless visibility and detailed context about device and user.|
|Point-in-time segmentation upon admittance. No continuous monitoring or ability to re-segment over time.||Segment devices automatically based on current, real-time information.|
|Segmentation management only for vendor’s own technologies, which require standardization (vendor lock-in).||Visualize and manage across heterogeneous network infrastructure without upgrades or standardization.|
|Network segmentation for only one vector or IT environment.||Standardize network segmentation policies and management across campus, data center, cloud and OT environments.|
