Fore Scout



Forescout assesses, remediates and monitors devices and works with disparate security tools to help accelerate incident response, break down silos, automate workflows and optimize existing investments Agentless. No device agents or previous device knowledge needed. Discover and profile the ever-expanding number and types of devices connecting to your network: IoT and OT devices, traditional endpoints, operating systems and virtual instances that are constantly joining your extended enterprise.

Continuous. Our platform continuously sees these devices in incredible detail and monitors their behavior and compliance status as they come and go from the network. We continuously enforce your security policies based on changing device context.

Heterogeneous. The ForeScout platform works with leading network infrastructure vendors and third-party security solutions. Use your preferred switches, wireless routers, firewalls or VPNs—with or without 802.1X authentication. This flexible platform also accommodates your evolving network without requiring network upgrades or vendor lock-in.

Management scale. To keep pace with device growth, CounterACT 8 provides twice the management capacity as before. You can now manage up to 2 million devices in a single Enterprise Manager deployment across your extended enterprise.

  • Appliance scale. Scale to 20,000 devices in half the footprint to improve deployment density and optimize rack space. Additionally, monitor and analyze full 10Gbps traffic with physical appliances.
  • Virtual deployments. CounterACT 8 supports KVM as a third virtual appliance deployment option, in addition to VMware® and Hyper-V.
  • Intelligent IP distribution. Automate IP distribution and management across a multi-appliance cluster to reduce administration overhead associated with allocating IP ranges to individual appliances.
  • ForeScout Flexx licensing. This software-centric licensing model provides a centralized license pool with deployment flexibility and license portability to manage your devices across campus, data center, cloud and OT networks. The customer licensing portal enables you to optimize license administration, entitlement management and license compliance functions.
