ForeScout Technologies Inc., a provider of agentless cybersecurity, is partnering with FireEye, Inc. to give users the intelligence and expertise to detect cyber threats efficiently.
“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.”
The collaboration allows ForeScout and FireEye to provide customers with actionable intelligence and visibility from across their enterprise network.
By combining ForeScout and FireEye endpoint security capabilities, customers can isolate endpoints that have a high probability of being compromised and initiate defensive responses.
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.
The partnership will expand to include ForeScout integrations with FireEye email protection, endpoint, and cloud-based analytics 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.”
