Charles River Selects ForeScout Network Access Control for Superior Functionality, Manageability and Cost Savings
CUPERTINO, CA, Mar 28, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
ForeScout Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of automated
security control solutions for Fortune 1000 enterprises and
government organizations, is pleased to add Charles River
Laboratories to the growing number of satisfied customers who have
chosen to adopt ForeScout CounterACT in place of earlier generation
network access control (NAC) solutions.
Like other IT organizations, Charles River made investments in an
infrastructure-based NAC to fortify access and endpoint compliance
only to realize challenges with regards to agent issues, operational
disruptions and policy management. Charles River chose ForeScout
CounterACT, which enabled the company to quickly implement and unify
NAC policies across multiple sites; achieve greater endpoint
visibility and control without requiring agents; and lower their
total cost of ownership.
"It's rare that I get an opportunity to be as enthusiastic about a
product as I am about ForeScout CounterACT," said Keith Alan Rodwell,
principal infrastructure and security architect at Charles River. "At
a time when IT tool chests are filled with one-time, limited use
products, it is refreshing to have a product like CounterACT, which
supports our security, desktop management, help desk, active
directory and enterprise applications groups."
"Seamless implementation, proven interoperability, usability and
automation are among key factors why ForeScout customers are so
successful with their CounterACT deployments," said Jack Marsal,
director of solution marketing at ForeScout. "We welcome other
progressive IT organizations, like Charles River, to upgrade to
ForeScout to realize greater visibility, control and savings."
ForeScout CounterACT provides real-time visibility and automated
control for all devices accessing network resources -- leveraging a
company's existing infrastructure. Not only does CounterACT support
both 802.1x and non-802.1x/agentless approaches to enforce trusted
network access, it also offers a wealth of integrated features,
built-in and extensible policies and enforcement options, and
centralized policy management. ForeScout's automated security control
platform combines guest networking, mobile security, endpoint
compliance and threat prevention to provide value for the entire IT
ForeScout welcomes IT organizations to evaluate CounterACT and see
firsthand, like Charles River, the CounterACT difference. As
illustrated by a recent, in-depth competitive Tolly Group assessment
of NAC products, ForeScout CounterACT provides superior usability,
deployment, interoperability, functionality, management and scale.
From now through August 31, 2012, customers of Cisco, Juniper,
Symantec, Sophos, Bradford Networks and other NAC products can switch
up to ForeScout at an attractive discount. This offer applies to end
users' licensed NAC products under maintenance for like ForeScout
CounterACT virtual appliances -- other terms and conditions apply.
