Continuous monitoring in real time is an ever-increasing requirement, and in terms of compliance, is a core tenet of popular industry standards. Extraordinary growth in the consumerisation of IT has led to the recognition that greater visibility and broader network-based control is required for remediating endpoint issues, which are growing in both volume and severity, said
Enterprises are challenged with supporting business agility while managing security risks due to greater network, device, access and threat complexity. Exacerbating this situation is the proliferation of BYOD device use as well as increased exposure to rogue devices, non-compliant systems and targeted attacks. To optimise IT resources and responsiveness, organisations require real-time operational insight and efficient means to resolve security problems and contain incidents.
ForeScout ControlFabric is an open platform that enables ForeScout CounterACT and other IT solutions to exchange information and mitigate a wide variety of network and endpoint security concerns. The platform helps enterprises to advance situational awareness by leveraging infrastructure data and to improve the security posture by applying policy-based controls to expedite remediation actions. It also saves time and money through the automation of routine activities. ForeScout CounterACT is a proven, enterprise-scale network security solution that provides visibility of all network users, endpoints and applications in real time. CounterACT shares this intelligence with other security and management systems that interoperate through ForeScouts ControlFabric Interface, and it receives information from these systems to trigger security policies. This allows enterprises to apply broader network-based controls by leveraging existing IT security and management tools that heretofore have been limited to analysing, alerting and reporting information (e.g. SIEM, VA and ATP).
IT organisations require defences that not only interoperate with each other but also provide more value than the individual solutions deliver on their own. Its about maximising their ROI in people, process and tools, said
