The most valuable feature is the blocking of USB devices.I have noticed that in the last year the license model has changed from licensing the whole appliance to licensing the number of devices. It's more simple for a large installation, or a user to have CounterACT as their peripheral site in the company. It's a good choice to have changed the license policy.The most valuable features are remote access and administration scripts.Emergency response, risk assessment information to get a view of the of the vulnerability.The visibility is the main benefit. We now know how many devices are connected, what the use for each device is and what kind of devices we have in our environment.Obtaining visibility into the network and connected devices is very simple with this tool. It takes me three minutes to do a base deployment when all the parameters are available.

Cons
I'd like to have access to more information on the traffic passing through.

The ability to block external devices in Mac is lacking and needs to be added.For the user, the policy that they have implemented sometimes needs adjustments. Sometimes the features that the customer asks for aren't involved in the main installation, and I need to bolt an add-on in. However, I never know if this policy is the right one when I do this.We experienced some detection issues when checking compliance for the Sophos agent.Search - needs boolean functionality (or pseudo operand now working).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.Multitenancy should be included in the next version so it could be used as a managed service provider.
