What is Forescout CounterACT?

A network security platform that delivers visibility, control and mitigation for devices, users, systems and applications attempting to connect to an enterprise network - wired or wireless, managed or unmanaged, PC or mobile. It combines discovery, endpoint intelligence, access control, mobile security and policy-based mitigation in an integrated appliance that does not require agents, infrastructure upgrades or disrupt users.

As a result, IT staff can easily resolve security control gaps, such as personal mobile devices, unpatched and vulnerable systems or missing or inactive endpoint software, and remediate issues with little or no IT intervention. The platform uniquely offers a broad range of interoperability with popular network, mobile, security and management solutions.
