ForeScout Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of pervasive network security solutions for Global 2000 enterprises and government organizations, today announced interoperability between ForeScout CounterACT™ and Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls and WildFire™ to secure network and application access, enforce endpoint compliance and fortify threat management. These integrations, enabled via ForeScout’s ControlFabric™ architecture, allow mutual customers of ForeScout and Palo Alto Networks to enforce user- and role-based access to network resources and web applications, to ensure endpoint compliance, and to identify and contain advanced persistent threats (APTs) and zero-day attacks.

“To detect and respond to cyberthreats, organizations need more information about network access, user and device activities, policy violations and anomalous behavior. When we asked how enterprises will change their security technology strategy decisions over the next 24 months, 44 percent of respondents said they will design and build a more integrated security architecture. Why? Large organizations want integrated intelligence, policy management, and command and control to improve risk management, incident detection/responses and security automation,” said Jon Oltsik, senior principal analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. ”The ForeScout and Palo Alto Networks combination illustrates how interoperability can yield a level of contextual control and policy-based response needed to help organizations get ahead of security issues while optimizing resources.

ForeScout CounterACT/Palo Alto Networks WildFire Integration
ForeScout CounterACT works with Palo Alto Networks WildFire to provide mutual customers with real-time visibility and compliance management of devices on enterprise networks, effective response to APTs and zero-day threats, and automation to efficiently mitigate APTs and reduce mean-time-to-resolution.

WildFire provides an end-to-end approach to detecting modern cyberattacks and APTs that rely on stealth, persistence and the skilled avoidance of traditional security defenses. It utilizes a malware analysis environment in which new and unknown malware and exploits can run and be identified. Once an attack is detected, the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewall informs CounterACT of the affected systems, allowing CounterACT to detect and quarantine infected endpoints on the enterprise network.

ForeScout CounterACT/Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewall Integration
ForeScout CounterACT works with Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls to deliver comprehensive insight into corporate and personal devices accessing and on a network in order to effectuate bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies, enforce endpoint compliance and mitigate risks.

CounterACT detects devices, corporate and personal, as soon as they connect to the network, and obtains user, authentication and device configuration and security context. It communicates real-time user login and logoff to Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls, enabling organizations to apply firewall policies to enforce access to applications and content based on user identity, regardless of device type, ownership, IP address or location. Additionally, CounterACT communicates device non-compliance to Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls, allowing joint customers to restrict those devices from accessing certain applications or parts of the network.

“Combining the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewall and WildFire with ForeScout CounterACT provides enterprises the real-time identity, endpoint and access intelligence and flexible control needed to mitigate user, device, application and malware risks,” said Gilad Walden, vice president of Products at ForeScout. “Our integration with Palo Alto Networks shows how bringing together best-of-breed solutions can help customers get the most benefit from their security investments and dramatically improve IT agility.”
