Westcon Bolsters Security Lineup with ForeScout’s CounterACT Platform

The automated security control platform provides the ability to see and control devices, users, systems, and applications attempting to connect to an enterprise network.

Westcon, an IT distributor focused on security, UCC, networking, data center, cloud, global deployment and services, has signed an agreement to offer ForeScout Technologies Inc. automated security control platform to solution providers in North America.

ForeScout CounterACT is an agentless security appliance that provides IT organizations with the ability to see devices, including non-traditional devices, when they connect to the network. CounterACT allows policy-based control of these devices and works with ForeScout ControlFabric Architecture to orchestrate information sharing and operation among disparate security tools.

“As more people connect to corporate networks—especially with their own devices—businesses need a solution that can easily discover, assess, and prevent unknown and unwanted users from gaining access,” says Andrew Warren, Westcon’s vice president of security. “Westcon offers the most innovative and leading-edge security technologies on the market and ForeScout is a great addition to that lineup.”†

“Network visibility and control is a high priority for both solution providers and IT organizations. It is of paramount importance that companies quickly discover devices and effectively control them to mitigate risks,” says Brant Kennedy, executive vice president of Worldwide Sales at ForeScout. “We’re excited to work with Westcon to introduce our advanced architecture and functionality to their large base of expert security partners.”
