ConSentry Networks buy-back offer from ForeScout

ForeScout Technologies : 02 September, 2009  (Company News)
Customers looking to replace ConSentry Networks with CounterACT from ForeScout can take part in a buyback program offered by ForeScout until the end of December
ForeScout Technologies, a provider of network access control (NAC) appliances for global enterprises and government organisations, has announced a buyback program designed to help customers continue forward with their network security strategies by replacing NAC solutions purchased from ConSentry Networks with ForeScout CounterACT.

"When ConSentry closed its doors on 20 August, their customers were suddenly faced with the need for a plan B," said Gord Boyce, president of ForeScout. "We see this as an opportunity — or escape plan — for customers who bought into an expensive, switch-dependant NAC solution and have lived to regret it. Through our replacement program, we're giving them a second chance to switch over to our powerful, easy-to-deploy CounterACT NAC."

The ForeScout buyback program offers ConSentry and other switch-based NAC customers a CounterACT replacement on a credit-per-appliance basis. The offer expires on the 31st December 2009.

Customers who have evaluated or purchased switch-based NAC solutions will find that ForeScout CounterACT is easier to deploy and provides more extensive endpoint control. ForeScout CounterACT delivers out-of-the-box connectivity with a wide range of existing network switches and routers. Furthermore, ForeScout CounterACT works with all existing endpoints - Macs, PCs, VoIP phones, smart cell phones, printers, etc. No infrastructure overhauls or massive endpoint rollout of endpoint agents are required. ForeScout CounterACT can be rolled out and delivering high-value access control in hours versus weeks or months for traditional NAC solutions.

Boyce concluded: "The demand for CounterACT from Fortune 500 companies and federal organisations continues to grow because it is easy to deploy and provides a very high return on investment. Unlike many NAC providers ForeScout's business is strong and healthy, even during this economic downturn. We look forward to supporting ConSentry customers as our own ... once they make the switch to easy NAC."
