A forward thinking security team responsible for operations and compliance checks was searching for a network security solution that would provide intelligence across users, devices and applications, enforce granular policy control, and enable control interoperability. The network security solution they implemented from ForeScout allowed them to gain visibility and apply specific policies at both the client and network levels, enhance control integration among different tools, and reduce costs by saving man hours versus looking at multiple security devices - demonstrating an immediate return on investment. "Phenomenal" interoperability and technical support was an added bonus.
