We are sure that ForeScout's expertise in continuous monitoring and mitigation solutions will add significant value to the bank of knowledge our members are able to access as they seek to overcome service delivery challenges. We look forward to ForeScout contributing to our members' discussions via the Socitm network of regional events and hope that, in turn, ForeScout finds the opportunities for engagement with the public sector audience both insightful and rewarding.”

We already have a proven track record with government agencies and local authorities in the UK and look forward to working with Socitm members to advise and help in the fight against cyberthreats.”
