ForeScout Wins 2013 GOVTek Executive Government Technology Award for Best Mobility Solution

ForeScout Technologies, Inc., announced it won the GOVTek Executive Government Technology Award for Best Mobility Solution. The award winners were announced at the GOVTek Awards Gala, which celebrates and recognizes government and industry IT leaders whose visions, innovations and accomplishments have improved efficiency, the delivery of government services, citizen communication, information sharing and security of national assets.

ForeScout CounterACT is an all-in-one, out-of-band network security appliance that integrates with your existing wired and wireless infrastructure. The approach allows enterprises to see all devices the moment they try to access the network and apply policy to allow, deny or limit access. CounterACT grants access based on the user’s identity, the device type and the security posture of the device. The authorization functionality can be provided as an 802.1x RADIUS proxy, a RADIUS server or without the use of 802.1x or agents. Beyond access control, the solution offers a broad range of device classification, endpoint enforcement and remediation capabilities, as well as dynamic elimination of rogue wireless access points (WAP).

As an add-on to CounterACT, ForeScout MDM Integration Module provides bi-directional integration with leading Mobile Device Management (MDM) platforms such as AirWatchCitrix XenMobileFiberlink and MobileIron. The integration provides agencies numerous operational and security benefits, such as:

  • Automating policy-based enrollment of agency-provisioned and personal mobile devices
  • Removing mobile device security gaps by forcing posture checks on network resource access
  • Providing post-admission controls to remove non-compliant mobile devices from the network

As a result, CounterACT provides IT a single pane of glass and operational insight with regards to all managed and unmanaged, wired and wireless, and PC, mobile and embedded devices attempting access or on agency networks.

The GTRA Council Members and community evaluate and vote for winning agencies and solution providers based on their innovations and accomplishments from the past year. Details about the GOVTek Awards and the list of winners in all categories are available at
