Can you identify what’s on your OT network? Do you worry that needed security will impact your equipment’s production uptime?
If you face a mix of operational, IT and IoT devices comprising industrial control systems (ICS), building automation and healthcare equipment, it’s difficult to assess what is on your networks. ForeScout can help.
Without full knowledge of interconnected assets,… defenders are effectively working blindly, unable to make adequately informed decisions regarding which controls to implement, or how to prioritize security plans and spending.

HOW FORESCOUT HELPS
Immediately expand your visibility for converged IT and OT networks with device-level security. ForeScout uses passive techniques to gain views of the network landscape and see what was previously invisible, providing:
- Real-time asset inventory of IP-based devices without impacting performance or reliability
- Compliance that aligns with stringent security frameworks such as NIST
- Improved defense against targeted breaches that can result in stolen data and operational downtime
GAIN REAL-TIME VISIBILITY
ForeScout CounterACT® builds a real-time asset inventory of IP-based devices without impacting performance or reliability. ForeScout conducts non-disruptive asset discovery and classification by integrating with existing network, monitoring and inventory sources. These discovery and classification techniques construct a comprehensive asset repository to ensure access to timely and accurate device information. It also allows you to respond to service requests and security incidents with knowledge instead of guesswork. This asset inventory integrates with most configuration management database (CMDB) platforms.

STAY IN COMPLIANCE
ForeScout helps you implement the SANS Critical Security Controls framework to support your compliance efforts. CounterACT can help protect confidential data and support compliance efforts with mandated policies and regulations such as NIST, FISMA, NERC, ISO/IEC 27001 and the GDPR. In addition, it can:
- Identify and continuously monitor traditional, IoT and OT devices
- Perform posture assessment and help contain the spread of malware across the network
- Guard against targeted threats that can result in stolen data and network downtime
CONTINUOUSLY DISCOVER & MONITOR DEVICES
Use continuous discovery and monitoring to protect your critical infrastructure against targeted breaches that can result in stolen data and operational downtime, allow you to:
ForeScout’s agentless network discovery platform interoperates with heterogeneous networks and continuously provides a breakdown of networked devices.
- Assess device security posture continuously
- Select devices to be enabled for active security techniques
- Choose platforms for further security remediation or dynamic network segmentation
