What is ForeScout?

ForeScout CounterACT is an automated security control platform that delivers real-time visibility and control of all the devices on your network. ForeScout CounterACT automatically measures compliance with your security policies and remediates endpoint security deficiencies. ForeScout’s third generation network access control (NAC) technologies provide access control to your network that you control.

ForeScout CounterACT also solves security issues that face every network. The CounterACT platform can ensure that every endpoint on your network is compliant with your security policies. For example, CounterACT can ensure that antivirus is up-to-date, the operating system is properly patched, and the computer is free of illegitimate software such as P2P. Since ForeScout is agentless, it works with all types of devices - managed and unmanaged, known and unknown, on both physical and virtual.

The Benefits of ForeScout and ArcSight Integration?

From within the ArcSight Manager console, ForeScout CounterACT provides full visibility into all aspects of IT infrastructure and security risk – users, networks, endpoints and applications delivered in real-time. The integration of ArcSight and ForeScout offers the capability to enforce policies and mitigate threats from the console even automate risk management, compliance and the remediation process.  The combination of ArcSight and ForeScout delivers a unique and powerful solution to gain visibility and access control across the entire network.
