NIST'S National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence Selects Forescout to Shape Zero Trust Architecture
SAN JOSE, Calif., July 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Forescout Technologies, Inc., the leader in Enterprise of Things security, today announced it has been selected by the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) to collaborate in their Implementing a Zero Trust Architecture Project. Forescout was selected to help develop practical, interoperable approaches to designing and building zero trust architectures that will be published in a practice guide for government and other organizations. Forescout’s platform will be utilized by the NCCoE to advance the prevalence and strength of zero trust security controls to enhance protection of devices and data while supporting more flexible mobile, cloud and hybrid work environments.
“Forescout’s participation in this project began because we are already engaged in helping our customers enable zero trust architectures with our powerful policy enforcement and industry-leading device knowledge,” said Ellen Sundra, Chief Customer Officer, Forescout. “We are privileged to help NIST’s NCCoE identify and promote proven security strategies countering today’s critical threats in a perimeter-less world, including cloud computing, IoT, converging IT and physical control systems and evolving workforces.”
Forescout will work with NCCoE staff and other project collaborators to develop and demonstrate specific network and device architectures and corresponding zero trust defenses. The project’s objective is to showcase zero trust capabilities and implementation strategies applicable to enterprises that seek to implement a zero trust architecture.
Forescout’s latest NIST engagement builds on the company’s success with NCCoE’s IoT Security Guide project demonstrating security strategies and best practices for U.S. critical infrastructure operators and key economic sectors. Now engaged in the zero trust project, Forescout is helping the NCCoE to achieve program objectives by:
