We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"Licenses are perpetual but can come with renewable support."

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.
In the past, industrial control systems weren’t considered high risk for cyberattacks because they weren’t connected to enterprise systems or the internet.
Today, the use of common technology platforms, IT/OT data sharing, and cloud-based applications and analytics have made OT and IoT systems a primary target for threat actors. CIOs and CISOs are now expected to protect the entire IT/OT landscape, including all physical assets and industrial processes. To achieve this, OT and IoT security needs to be part of an overall digital security strategy managed by a collaborative IT/OT team.
