ForeScout Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of continuous monitoring and mitigation solutions for Global 2000 enterprises and government organizations, today announced that Northern Health and Social Care Trust (Northern Trust) selected ForeScout CounterACT™ to achieve greater visibility and control over the ever-growing number of devices accessing the organization’s network that are neither Northern Trust-owned nor managed.

“We witnessed the power of CounterACT within a matter of hours of the appliance being installed. The network infrastructure environment that we work within has a significant number of connected devices that are neither Trust-owned nor managed. If a device presents a security or governance risk, a decision needs to be made quickly on how to effectively manage that risk, particularly if it is a compromised medical device,” said Black. “ForeScout enables us to reduce the risk associated with these non-Trust owned and unman
