ForeScout Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of real-time network security solutions for Fortune 1000 enterprises and government organizations, and AirWatch, the largest mobile device management (MDM) provider in the world, today announced a partnership to deliver a comprehensive mobile security solution that combines the benefits of ForeScout’s network access control offerings with AirWatch’s MDM solution. As a result, companies can quickly enable enterprise mobility and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) strategies that are flexible, scalable and secure.

“Companies are looking for an integrated approach to manage and secure the invasion of employee-liable devices connecting to corporate networks, particularly in BYOD environments,” said Chris Hazelton, research director for mobile and wireless at 451 Research. “We see strong synergy between NAC and MDM in their capabilities to provide visibility into devices regardless of ownership corporate or personal. The combination of NAC with MDM technologies offers organizations the means to easily identify who and what type of device is connecting to the enterprise, to automatically enroll and monitor roles-based controls for any device and user, and to secure the movement of corporate data across smartphones and tablets.”

“IT organizations need solutions that help them easily manage enterprise accessibility and meet BYOD demands regardless of the types of users and devices connecting to their networks,” said Gord Boyce, CEO of ForeScout. “The ForeScout-AirWatch partnership delivers a layered approach to overcome the unique challenges of BYOD via integrated mobile device visibility, end-to-end management and security.”

Together ForeScout CounterACT™ and AirWatch MDM offer enterprises:

Security automation to dynamically detect unmanaged devices in real-time such as iPads, iPhones and Androids attempting to connect to the corporate network and to readily gain network and device-based controls for a variety of actions including: allow, block, limit, register as guest, segregate, and initiate device compliance inspection.
Automated installation of AirWatch’s MDM agent on unmanaged devices through a simple automated self-enrollment process.
Detection of jail-broken and rooted devices with the means to negate or limit access until remediated.
Real-time mobile device compliance re-assessment whenever a mobile device tries to connect to an enterprise WiFi network.
Over-the-air device configuration and corporate app catalog management to instantly provision access to corporate email, WiFi, VPN and applications.
Enforcement of passcode policies and strong encryption keys to protect sensitive data on mobile devices.
Mobile application blacklisting, minimum OS level verification and device feature restrictions.
The ability to remotely locate, lock and fully or selectively wipe lost or stolen devices.
Powerful compliance rules engine, at the device and network level, with automated responses for defined events and contextual changes.
Unified visibility, control and compliance reporting for all mobile endpoint devices including PCs, smartphones, tablets, and laptops through the ForeScout CounterACT platform.

“It is imperative that organizations recognize the importance of deploying a comprehensive security strategy that encompasses network access control, mobile device management and mobile application management,” said John Marshall, president and CEO, AirWatch. “By partnering with ForeScout, we provide a comprehensive solution that solves the enterprise mobility challenges organizations are facing.”

The integration between ForeScout CounterACT and AirWatch MDM is provided by ForeScout Mobile™, which is an add-on module to ForeScout CounterACT, the company’s award-winning network access control platform. By providing a range of mobile security solutions, ForeScout allows IT organizations to phase-in BYOD and “right size” their mobile security investments. The price of the ForeScout Mobile integration module for 1,000 devices or more is $18 per device (perpetual). The integration will be available by March 1.
