ForeScout Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of real-time network security solutions for Fortune 1000 enterprises and government organizations, today announced that ForeScout CounterACT™ will be used as a cornerstone technology for 11 of the 17 recipients of the recent General Services Administration (GSA) $6 billion blanket purchase agreement for the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Initiative.

The five-year contract award allows government agencies to partner with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the agency in charge of protecting civilian networks, to implement CDM technology in order to better safeguard the agencies’ networks, including the use of mobile devices, from day-to-day cyber threats.

The 17 selected federal systems integrators that received the award will offer government agencies sensors, risk-status displays and consulting services from contractors, the majority of which included ForeScout as a strategic component of their security solution. As part of a comprehensive CDM reference platform on 11 winning bids, CounterACT will help federal agencies improve their cybersecurity posture through its agentless, real-time asset discovery and policy-based remediation capabilities. ForeScout’s platform will also help federal agencies maintain ongoing awareness of network devices, policy violations, vulnerabilities and threats to accelerate their organization’s risk management decisions, remediation and reporting processes.

“ForeScout is excited to play a strategic role in helping federal agencies gain greater visibility into organizations’ security health and risk management,” said Niels Jensen, ForeScout’s regional vice president of federal sales. “CounterACT’s ability to provide real-time visibility of all assets on the network and to ensure devices adhere to the agencies’ security policies before access is granted will go a long way to achieve security control over government networks.”

ForeScout CounterACT is a real-time security platform that delivers complete visibility and automated control for all devices, users, systems and applications attempting to connect to an agency network. CounterACT’s agentless option enables it to work with all types of endpoints; managed and unmanaged, known and unknown, and PC and mobile including agency and personally owned smartphones and tablets. The platform provides contextual information (who, what, when and where) about all endpoints and bi-directionally interfaces with leading configuration, patch, endpoint protection, vulnerability and security information event management solutions, such as those from IBM, HP, Microsoft, McAfee, Symantec and Tenable (Nessus), to ensure that devices are dynamically identified, assessed and remediated. ForeScout’s interoperability assures precise operational intelligence, roles-based policy enforcement and threat mitigation.
