Conficker thwarted at SIRVA

ForeScout Technologies : 05 February, 2009  (Application Story)
CounterACT has successfully protected relocation service provider's network from infection by Conficker
ForeScout Technologies has announced that SIRVA, a provider of relocation solutions, has successfully thwarted infection and spread of the virulent Conficker malware, thanks to CounterACT. With CounterACT, enterprises like SIRVA can prevent zero-day malware outbreaks by stopping infections in real-time and ensuring strong policy-based enforcement is in place to secure and shield the LAN against future threat.

"ForeScout CounterACT offers us powerful protection against rapid-spreading malware like Conficker," said Waqas Akkawi, senior manager of IT Security at SIRVA, Inc. "Using CounterACT's policy creation and enforcement technology, we have fortified our LAN with threat prevention controls. When Conficker attempted to enter the LAN through infected computers, CounterACT detected and blocked the connection attempts. CounterACT is simply the strongest threat prevention solution available: it allows us to maintain maximum network up-time to run the business, while proactively protecting our clients' information."

Ideally suited for enterprise networks with mobile clients such as employee, guest and contractor laptops, CounterACT offers a wide range of security benefits:

* Prevention & Protection - CounterACT ensures that the MS-Update service is always running on every Windows device. It also blocks Conficker infection using strong, built-in threat prevention technology.
* Enforcement & Remediation - CounterACT ensures other IT protection tools (anti-virus, anti-spyware, etc.) are working and "always on" and automatically remediates infected hosts.
* Monitoring & Reporting - CounterACT continuously monitors endpoint security posture and maintains a clean, secure network. It also records all remediation/enforcement actions taken against Conficker on malicious and/or infected hosts.

"In the presence of real threat, CounterACT has once again proven to deliver absolute 24/7/365 protection," said Gord Boyce, president of ForeScout. "This demonstrates to our customers that CounterACT is a sound investment that continues to save them time and money."
