Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

An Unvarnished Assessment of ForeScout Visibility

When a disruptive technology emerges, it is often met with skepticism. A good case in point is ForeScout CounterACT®. It’s gaining a lot of traction in cybersecurity circles, with more than 2,000 large and medium enterprises and government agencies worldwide using the product as of April 2016. But for those IT professionals who might think its capabilities are too good to be true, ForeScout enlisted Miercom, a leading independent testing and consultancy, to provide unbiased, hands-on testing of CounterACT capabilities. Miercom’s findings are what this webinar is all about.
Please join us as Miercom President and CEO Rob Smithers talks about his lab’s findings with regard to CounterACT’s:

• Visibility (discovery, classification and compliance assessment) of network-connected corporate, BYOD, guest and IoT endpoints without use of agents or previous device knowledge
• Detection and full classification of hundreds of endpoints in seconds
• Policy-based control of devices by enabling IT staff to grant the appropriate level of network access to people, applications and devices
• Ability to integrate with leading network infrastructure and endpoint protection technologies

  • Preventing Cyberattacks via Dynamic Network Segmentation Recorded: Oct 16 2017 49 mins
    Ward Holloway, ForeScout Technologies & Chris Ebley, Managing Partner, BAI & Lee Space, Palo Alto Networks
    In today’s era of ‘Bring your own device’ (BYOD) mobility and ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) devices proliferating networks as unknown or unmanaged connections, the cyberattack surface for most any organization continues to grow at an alarming rate. No longer can organizations rely on guarding their perimeter and trusting they know everyone and everything that is accessing their network. Proactive threat prevention in today’s BYOD and IoT era requires continuous network access visibility and intelligence as well as being able to automatically apply context-aware security policies such as segmenting devices and users without having to re-build networks or knowing the devices upfront.
    Webinar topics include:
    - Network security trends and challenges, including the more destructive ransomware, cryptoransomware, wipers, etc.
    - Risk prevention architecture considerations
    - Best practices based on real world experiences

    BAI will share some of its key learnings based on extensive experience implementing successful solutions that target attacks while creating more highly available, responsive, and automated networks. BAI is a team of Security Architects who have provided Automated Detection, Prevention, and Orchestration to protect Government Agencies, Higher Education and Fortune 1000 commercial accounts.

  • Using Agentless Visibility to Simplify Network Segmentation Recorded: Aug 30 2017 18 mins
    Eric Nelson, Manager, Systems Engineering, ForeScout Technologies
    Network segmentation projects are on everyone’s radar for 2017 since outside-in perimeter security technologies such as firewalls, intrusion prevention systems and advance threat protection systems are unable to prevent some of the recent notable cyberattacks. Once threats are inside a flat network, they can roam and spread freely. Segmentation is a best practice to contain these threats and protect network resources. This 40-minute seminar will share the key areas for effective network segmentation, including:
    • Using agentless visibility and granular device classification to define profiles, roles and zones
    • Leveraging existing infrastructure investments to segment today’s flat networks
    •  Automating and maintaining network segmentation hygiene with ForeScout CounterACT®
