Wireless compatibility certification for CounterACT

ForeScout Technologies : 18 December, 2008  (New Product)
Wireless LAN controllers from WINS certified as interoperable with the CounterACT network access control plug-in from ForeScout
ForeScout Technologies has announced that its CounterACT Wireless Integration kit has been tested and proven interoperable with Meru Networks. Meru's Wireless Interoperability & Network Solutions (WINS) lab verified the interoperability of the ForeScout CounterACT NAC platform with Meru's virtual cell wireless infrastructure. Verification ensures that customers can deploy ForeScout solutions on Meru's WLAN infrastructure without having to do their own extensive testing.

Ideally suited for networks with mobile clients such as guest/contractor and employee laptops, the kit consists of a software plug-in for control of wireless network controllers and access points and helps to ensure Wi-Fi clients connecting to the network are monitored, are in compliance with security policies, up-to-date with necessary patches, and free of malware.

"We are delighted that ForeScout's CounterACT integration solutions are now certified interoperable with a wireless vendor like Meru, who is recognised for its visionary wireless architecture," said Ayelet Steinitz, vice president of business development, ForeScout Technologies. "Using CounterACT, IT managers have immediate reach into our product's rich network insight and access control capabilities without modifying their infrastructure or significantly impacting their end users. The CounterACT wireless integration kit offers a highly effective solution for wireless network access control. It provides information about connecting devices through the wireless access points or wireless controllers. It detects and instantly blocks critical threats from gaining entrance through any wireless access point, and displays comprehensive information about the wireless access point on the host console."

"Meru is committed to providing its customers with access to WINS certified best-of-breed technologies from security partners such as ForeScout, thus simplifying and speeding the deployment of secure WLAN infrastructure," said Sarosh Vesuna, vice president of business development at Meru. "Customers will immediately benefit from ForeScout's access control, regulatory compliance, vulnerability assessment and remediation solutions."

The CounterACT wireless integration kit is available through local ForeScout representatives and supports the entire family of Meru wireless network controllers. The kit enables IT managers to capture a wide range of Wi-Fi client connectivity information, including Host IP and MAC addresses, wireless network SSIDs, wireless access names and locations, and client authentication methods.
