ForeScout Extended Modules for Next-Generation Firewalls

Forescout eyeExtend products share device context between the Forescout platform and other IT and security products to automate policy enforcement across disparate solutions and accelerate system-wide response to mitigate risks.

The joint solution between Forescout and next-generation firewalls allows you to gain unique endpoint visibility, assign access to resources on the move and enforce granular context-aware security policies. This helps to reduce your attack surface, prevent unauthorized access to sensitive resources, and minimize malware proliferation and data breaches.

ForeScout CounterACT works with next-generation firewalls to provide real-time visibility and precise, automated controls for secure access to critical applications and resources. This enables IT organizations to implement dynamic network segmentation and create context-aware security policies within their nextgeneration firewalls based on endpoint context from the Extended Module.

The CounterACT network security appliance provides IT organizations with the unique ability to see devices, including non-traditional devices, the instant they connect to the network. CounterACT provides policy-based control of these devices. It works with the Forescout Modules to orchestrate information sharing and automate workflows among disparate security and IT management tools, including next-generation firewalls.

Next-generation firewalls provide network control based on user, device, application and traffic classification. They leverage user and device context from a variety of sources to enforce granular access policies with precise and flexible control over resources. Forescout Extended Modules provide real-time user and device context to next-generation firewalls for corporate, BYOD, guest, IoT and other IP-connected devices. This enables next-generation firewalls to segment resources on a need-to-know basis and assign appropriate access to resources, regardless of location.
