Senior Security Engineer at a marketing services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
We are now able to see the assets connected to our network and classify them based on certain criteria that we can define. We still have a ways to go in getting things setup and more networks defined on what we want to see. Forescout is allowing us to gain that visibility with a few clicks of the mouse. Being able to sort on device types or devices with open ports is helpful when narrowing down assets of possible misconfigured devices that may be vulnerable on the network. We can take action on those devices based off of corporate policy. View full review »

Senior Network Engineer at Tessy Plastics
Before our implementation of Forescout, we had no Network Access Control. This allowed all users, trusted and unknown, to access our internal infrastructure. This was a burden because we are in the contract manufacturing sector where each independent contractor brings in their own infrastructure and it is up to us to secure these networks. Since implementing CounterACT, we have been able to isolate and segment all unknown devices, providing strict requirements for device on boarding. Since implementing Forescout, our environment is significantly more secure. View full review »

It has helped with improving our security posture in terms of controlling the access of rogue devices into our network through identification. We have been able to prevent rogue device activities on the network, check the health of the system, and ensure remediation. It has provided visibility into the workings of our routers and switches. We also extended this capability to our branch offices through a WAN connection. View full review »
