Award success for Network Access Control platform

ForeScout Technologies has achieved success in the 2015 SC Europe awards organised by SC Magazine. Choosing between ForeScout Technologies, Cryptzone, Hexis Cyber Solutions and Trustwave, the SC Magazine audience panel chose ForeScout's CounterACT product as the winner in the Best NAC solution category in the "Threat Solutions Excellence" awards. SC Magazine announced the win during the awards gala which was held on 2nd June 2015 in London's Park Lane.

Making use of next-generation network access control (NAC) technology, the CounterACT platform exemplifies the leadership ForeScout has in continuous monitoring and mitigation by providing real-time visibility to users, devices including bring your own device (BYOD), systems and applications.

Using CounterACT, IT organisations can apply granular policies centrally in order to understand their true security posture and to respond automatically to a wide variety of security issues. Powered by ControlFabric technology, the platform also enables other network, security and management products to dynamically exchange information, which, in turn, allows enterprises to respond to issues more effectively and make better use of their existing security investments.

“Network security is top-of-mind with companies across the board as the explosive growth in personal device use on corporate networks shows no signs of slowing. And when it comes right down to it, you can’t stop what you can’t see,” said Michael DeCesare, CEO and president of ForeScout. “We’re pleased to be recognised by SC Magazine, as this award really acknowledges our ability to share actionable intelligence between previously disparate security solutions and the critical role that ForeScout plays in utilising that information, providing continuous network visibility and threat remediation capabilities.”

The SC Magazine awards tak place annually when hundreds of products are judged across a range of categories, each judged by a representative audience panel from across the publication's readership. The small group of products that reach the award finals undergo a rigorous final judging process to determine the winner in each category.

“It's more important than ever to recognise the tireless efforts of the men and women across the globe who work to combat these threats and provide cyber security. CounterACT is a significant achievement and one that shows ForeScout’s dedication to innovation and protecting against the ever-changing threat landscape,” said Tony Morbin, editor-in-chief of SC Magazine UK.
