CUPERTINO, Calif., April 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ForeScout Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of real-time network security solutions for Fortune 1000 enterprises and government organizations, today announced it has been named to CRN's 2013 Partner Program Guide, and awarded a 5-Star Partner rating. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes ForeScout as a vendor that gives solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
"This 5-Star rating recognizes the work the ForeScout team has put into building a strong channel program that delivers innovative, best-in-class products," said Scott Gordon, vice president of worldwide marketing for ForeScout and a CRN 2013 Channel Chief award recipient. "Our channel partners are integral to our ongoing success, so we share this honor with them."
ForeScout is positioned in the "Leaders" quadrant in the Gartner Inc. 2012 Magic Quadrant for Network Access Control (1) (NAC) and Frost & Sullivan (2) has acclaimed the company as the largest independent NAC vendor and one that is growing the fastest in the market. The company's award-winning product, ForeScout CounterACT, provides access control, endpoint intelligence and policy-based enforcement of all devices connected to the network. Beyond assuring trusted user and device access, the platform helps IT staff identify endpoint security gaps, such as out-of-date systems, missing management agents or inactive endpoint security software, and remediates those devices with little or no IT intervention. The platform offers bi-directional integration with a company's critical operational platforms including SIEM, host-based protection, identity, helpdesk and systems management systems.
ForeScout recently expanded its channel program in a variety of areas including the rollout of an innovative NAC-as-a-Service offer with aggressive managed service pricing. It also unveiled a new Web-based customer on-boarding application with various sales, marketing and technical resources. The company's enhanced partner portal offers an array of training, customizable seminars and co-branded materials as well as new turnkey partner lead generation programs.
"The companies listed in CRN's 2013 Partner Program Guide represent a comprehensive list of the best channel programs in the market today," said Kelley Damore, senior vice president and editorial director, for UBM Tech Channel's CRN. "The 5-star award is reserved for vendors that understand that a successful partnership does not rely solely on the technology. By offering their partners tools, education and regular updates, vendors on this list go above and beyond traditional support to ensure a mutually beneficial partnership."
The 2013 Partner Program Guide will be featured on CRN.com and the 5-Star Partners listing will be highlighted in the March 2013 issue of CRN.
