The ForeScout Platform Pricing and License Cost

Forescout's flex licensing has made our deployment more agile and helps us adapt our environment without buying more hardware. Under their old model, licensing was tied to 4k and 10k appliances which strained under the new v7 and v8 Forescout OS when nearing their designed capacity. To acquire a new appliance, physical or virtual, meant buying licensing for that size of appliance. Under the new flex licensing model, we've been able to deploy VM appliances, responsible for host interrogation and management, while retaining our physical appliances for SNMP switch management, and span aggregation. Under the flex licencing model, we've deployed to our ICS segments, and are deploying VMs to our DCS environment, allowing for full visibility under one 'pane of glass' of nearly every host on our network. Ensure you consider everything you want to monitor that has an IP. Devices with multiple IP's count multiple times against your license count. View full review »

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. View full review »
