ForeScout Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of automated security control solutions for Fortune 1000 enterprises and government organisations, today announced that Glyndwr University, an inspiring and enterprising University based in Wrexham, North Wales, has selected ForeScout’s automated security control platform to automate wireless network and endpoint security. As a result, the company was able to reduce network security threats and IT team workload.

When its wireless controllers were coming to the end of their life, Glyndŵr used the opportunity to not only progress their infrastructure, but also their defences. They began searching for a new network security product, one with wide-ranging functionality. Specific requirements included: the ability to manage and control the network serving students on the main campus; the ability to facilitate device authentication, to check students were who they said they were when logging in to the network; plus capability to manage the wide variety of endpoints brought on to the network by students, including laptops (Windows and Apple operating systems); smartphones and Xbox game consoles. Keeping out malware and viruses was also a critical requirement.

Glyndŵr University contacted Synetix, a leading IT solutions provider, which evaluated the situation before recommending ForeScout CounterACT to resolve the University’s specific network security issues. The platform integrates network access, guest networking, mobile security and endpoint compliance capabilities into one easy-to-use and deploy appliance. The fact CounterACT requires no costly infrastructure changes or equipment upgrades was a key influencing factor in the purchasing process for Glyndŵr. Following a successful proof of concept conducted by Synetix, the University rolled out the solution across the main campus network.

Rob Stockton, Head of IT Services at Glyndŵr University, said,“Since installing CounterACT, we can’t remember the last time we had to visit the student halls to fix an IT problem. We used to encounter a whole range of malware attacks, including the likes of Conficker, and when students’ devices didn’t work they blamed our network. Since using CounterACT, we’ve suffered no malware attacks at all.”

CounterACT’s ability to identify unwanted applications, send warning notices and limit peer-to-peer file-sharing applications, including film and music download sites, has significantly reduced the number of overall malware and potential copyright infringement issues for the University. As a result, CounterACT has dramatically cut the University IT team’s workload; they are saving one man day per week, which equates to annual cost savings of around £4,500.

John Hagerty, EMEA Sales Director at ForeScout, commented,“Throughout Europe, ForeScout’s automated security control platform is delivering immediate productivity benefits and demonstrable cost savings to customers like Glyndwr University. CounterACT’s ability to provide full visibility and policy enforcement for all devices on the network is invaluable in helping to eliminate network security threats.”
