Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"Devices with multiple IP's count multiple times against your license count.""The fact that we were allowed to spin up as many servers as we had need of to support our geographic requirements while paying for licensing as an enterprise truly set Forescout apart from the crowd and improved the way we could design our access.""We went with the virtual appliance option. The biggest cost to running these types of appliances would be to either have multiple virtual appliances at every data center or running Remote SPAN hardware to provide you the real-time network visibility.""The ROI is priceless.""It might not be the cheapest solution, but you get what you pay for.""Time savings in finding rogue devices as well as identifying potentially unwanted devices on the network has saved the organization time and money.""The setup cost, pricing, and licensing are on the high side.""Forescout Platform is too expensive, so the price should be reduced."

Overview

AppGate enables organizations to adopt a Software-Defined Perimeter approach for granular security control. AppGate makes the application/server infrastructure effectively “invisible.” It then provides users with access to authorized resources only, verifying user context and attributes — including device posture and identity — before granting access to an application. Once the user logs out, the secure tunnel disappears. Additionally, when a user’s context changes – such as moving from a corporate to a public network, additional security requirements (such as multi-factor authentication) can be enforced, or access can be denied. All controlled by a simple policy.

ForeScout offers Global 2000 enterprises and government organizations the unique ability to see devices, including non-traditional devices, the instant they connect to the network. Equally important, ForeScout lets you control these devices and orchestrate information sharing and operation among disparate security tools to accelerate incident response. Unlike traditional security alternatives, ForeScout achieves this without requiring software agents or previous device knowledge. The company’s solutions integrate with leading network, security, mobility and IT management products to overcome security silos, automate workflows and enable significant cost savings.
