Forescout Platform Review

SNMP Traps on switches is one of its most valuable features

What is our primary use case?

Primarily used to define which host to admit onto the network, by tying a policy to the MAC address.

How has it helped my organization?

Identifying issues on why some hosts are not on the network, and assisting with possible remediation options.

What is most valuable?

  • SNMP Traps on switches
  • Getting the MAC address of the host from the ARP table of the switch and applying policy.

What needs improvement?

  • Battled with the use of SNMP v1 instead of v2c
  • Direct web interface rather than installation of a client.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.
