IoT devices often remain invisible on enterprise networks because, unlike traditional systems, they can’t be easily tracked and rarely support software agents, says Forescout.

Its products comprise eyeSight, eyeInspect, eyeSegment, eyeControl and eyeExtend.

After deployment, it says, many customers discover 30-50 per cent more devices than they anticipated. It means that they can then manage their attack surface, mitigate cybersecurity risk, achieve compliance and manage asset inventory.

Forescout says its platform – one of the most widely deployed – arms customers with extensive device intelligence, insights, and actionable visibility. Then it helps to create policies to allow clients to accurately classify risk, detect anomalies and quickly put in place measures to foil cyber threats without disrupting critical business assets.

Its platform, says Forescout, is based on a Zero Trust (NIST 800-207) framework that combines complete device visibility, proactive network segmentation and least-privilege access control of all digital assets.
