We think it's very useful and we really like reports and everything.""We really like that we get full visibility of devices in the local network."

Cons
"I would like integration with other mobile solutions."

More BlackBerry Secure Cons »

"They should improve features related to IT security. ForeScout should analyze behavior to see if the behavior is malicious behavior and block this device. They should develop the ability to analyze the behavior of the device in my environment.""Search - needs boolean functionality (or pseudo operand now working).""We experienced some detection issues when checking compliance for the Sophos agent.""The ability to block external devices in Mac is lacking and needs to be added.""The solution does have a bit of complexity, and there's some complexity in the deployment. Users need to be trained before undertaking an initial setup.""The solution could always improve by adding more features to make it more robust.""The biggest disadvantage is the pricing.""It's scalable, but not without a big investment. It doesn't do so well at the branch. At the home office, it does okay and not so well at the branch."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The licensing costs are $5000 USD."

More BlackBerry Secure Pricing and Cost Advice »

"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."
