ForeScout, FireEye Form Security Partnership

PRESS RELEASE – CAMPBELL and MILPITAS, Calif. — March 1, 2016 — ForeScout Technologies Inc., the pioneer in agentless cybersecurity, and FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the leader in stopping today’s advanced cyber attacks, are today announcing a strategic partnership. The collaboration is designed to give joint customers broad agentless visibility into their networks, along with FireEye technology, intelligence and expertise to close the gap between detecting and responding to a cyber threat.

Addressing the challenges of today’s distributed enterprise requires a holistic and consolidated approach to securing all devices. ForeScout and FireEye deliver on this need by providing customers actionable intelligence and visibility from across their enterprise network. Further, with the combined ForeScout and FireEye endpoint security capabilities in place, customers can isolate endpoints that have a high probability of being compromised and initiate defensive responses.

The cybersecurity attack surface is growing due to the growing number of IoT devices connecting into the enterprise and the networks of industrial control systems. IDC predicted that 90 percent of all IT networks will have an IoT-based security breach by December 2016. To minimize the attack surface, agentless visibility is used to discover and classify IoT devices. The ForeScout-FireEye partnership directly tackles this problem with a cybersecurity solution that monitors the network for unknown devices, dynamically segments them, and deploys system-wide responses to defend against advanced threats.{ad}

“With an increasing number of IoT devices connecting into both the enterprise as well as critical infrastructure providers, security teams need complete visibility into their networks and the capability to quickly detect and shut down a compromised device,” said David DeWalt, chairman of the board and CEO at FireEye. “The ForeScout-FireEye partnership will enable visibility and situational awareness across connected devices and help keep the internet of things from becoming a cybersecurity nightmare.”

ForeScout and FireEye already have a number of customers successfully using the combined solution of ForeScout agentless visibility, control and automation (ForeScout CounterACTTM) with FireEye network security. The partnership will expand to include ForeScout integrations with FireEye email protection, endpoint, and cloud-based analytics platform.  

“The growing need for an all-inclusive approach to security makes partnering with FireEye a strong strategic advantage for our customers,” said Michael DeCesare, CEO and president at ForeScout. “A siloed approach to security is a vulnerability that adversaries are increasingly taking advantage of all over the world. We are committed to continue to expand our combined solutions across the FireEye platform.” 

“The integrated ForeScout-FireEye solution offers our customers an agentless way to not only monitor their global networks, but to also take action to neutralize threats if and when they are identified,” offered Mike Quattrochi, CEO of CipherTechs, a global information security company. “Our customers operate anywhere between 1,000 and 50,000 endpoints on their networks all around the globe. The visibility and actionability of this technology means that our customers are saving hundreds of hours every week through automated remediation and consistent uptime.”
