International retail property specialist NEINVER – currently Europe’s second largest outlet company under the brands FACTORY and The Style Outlets – has chosen ForeScout CounterACT to optimise the security and control of its network, which supports more than 1,200 endpoints across offices and shopping centres in Portugal, France, Germany, Poland, Italy and Spain.
José Miguel Collantes, IT director at NEINVER, said, “It is difficult to maintain a proper level of security when the number of remote sites grows continuously. This is why it was very important for us to have good visibility of our network and verification of its security posture. We needed a solution that would let us know in real-time what, who, how and when devices were connecting to the corporate network and, of course, to control access and enforce policy.”
On the advice of Spanish security service provider, Secura and Spanish distributor, Ingecom, NEINVER considered two network access control (NAC) solutions before making its decision. The retail property specialist opted for ForeScout CounterACT because of its manageability, superior performance, the simplicity of its agentless approach – all of which equated to lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and more assured implementation success.
In addition, ForeScout CounterACT enabled a transparent deployment without adding the complexity of 802.1X and without NEINVER having to upgrade its infrastructure or deploy additional network devices at remote sites to deliver the visibility and control it required.
“A growing number of organisations across numerous vertical markets are choosing CounterACT, to deliver the real-time visibility, control and network protection they need to ensure business continuity. From retail property and media to healthcare and financial services, we welcome organisations from any sector to trial CounterACT and experience the extensive benefits for themselves,” said John Hagerty, EMEA sales director for ForeScout.
