ForeScout CounterACT Receives Five-Star ‘Best Buy’ Rating in SC Magazine Group Test

McAfee names ForeScout its Security Innovation Alliances Partner of the Year

ForeScout Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of pervasive network security solutions for Fortune 1000 enterprises and government organizations, announced that its award-winning product, CounterACT™, has been named SC Magazine’s “Best Buy” in the Identity Management Group Test. SC Magazine, the information security industry’s leading news and product evaluation publication, awarded CounterACT version 7 with a five-star rating that highlighted its product design, ease of use, installation and configuration.

SC Magazine Group Tests evaluate and rate products in six categories: Features, Ease of Use, Performance, Documentation, Support and Value for Money. ForeScout CounterACT scored five out of five in all six categories and was honored with the “Best Buy” rating.

The review states that ForeScout CounterACT “is a feature-rich solution that truly delivers,” and a “well-designed product that is easy to install and configure.” It also notes that “it took under 30 minutes to start tracking data.” The article also highlights several of CounterACT’s innovations and features including:

  • Provides a multi-factored approach to identify and classify all devices, systems, application and users
  • Easily assesses adherence to configuration and security policy and determines if such access should be allowed, denied or limited
  • Incorporates an integrated, hybrid 802.1X and agentless approach that delivers complete access control and guest management, mobile security and endpoint compliance and remediation
  • Provides interoperability with popular network, wireless, security, identity and mobile infrastructure, including five leading mobile device management (MDM) vendors
  • It is a flexible, scalable offering via a high performance physical or virtual appliance
  • Supports both centralized and distributed deployment with the means to identify and assess devices, apply policy, enforce compliance and remediate systems

ForeScout continues to earn industry praise and recognition.  Early this month, ForeScout was recognized by McAfee in its Security Innovation Alliance (SIA) Partner of the Year Awards, as Partner of the Year for the second year in a row. The McAfee SIA is a technology partnering program created to help accelerate the development of interoperable security products and to simplify the integration of these products within complex customer environments.
