Policy-driven access control and segmentation with Arista and Forescout

Arista and Forescout joined forces to reduce risk by providing policy-driven access control and segmentation across campus, data center, cloud and OT networks. Arista is leveraging its cloud networking principles to bring resiliency, consistency and automation to campus networks. As an industry leader, Forescout Technologies is Arista‘s preferred NAC/device visibility and control provider.

The growth of IoT devices and proliferation of malware fundamentally impacts network operations, visibility and security in enterprise networks. The combination of Arista EOS and CloudVision for cognitive campus infrastructure and Forescout’s device visibility and policy control enable joint customers to implement enterprise-wide segmentation and fine-grained device control.

With the combination of Arista and Forescout, customers can enhance network operations with Arista capabilities while also leveraging Forescout’s enterprise-wide device visibility and policy management. This enables them to boost network performance, increase compliance and secure heterogenous networks.

Said Pedro Abreu, Chief Strategy and Product Officer, Forescout,

“Device visibility across the extended enterprise is a critical requirement for many organizations today, especially the need to understand how devices are communicating between their campus and data center. Forescout’s deep integration with Arista provides a best of breed solution that allows organizations to gain visibility of devices attached to the network and remediate or control the access of any device that does not meet compliance criteria. This partnership is anchored in meeting the security and operational requirements of the world’s largest and most complex networks.”
