CUPERTINO, Calif., March 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ForeScout Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of real-time network security control solutions for Fortune 1000 enterprises and government organizations, today announced that Info Security Products Guide has named ForeScout CounterACT™ the Gold Winner of the 2013 Global Excellence Awards in the Network Access Control (NAC) category.
"This award is yet another honor for ForeScout," said Jack Marsal, director of solution marketing at ForeScout. "Our development team has delivered a superior NAC product that is easier to install and manage than anything else on the market."
ForeScout CounterACT provides better, more comprehensive information about all devices connected to the network. This helps IT staff identify endpoint security gaps, such as out-of-date systems or inactive endpoint security software. CounterACT can also be used to automatically remediate endpoint security problems. The company's innovations have positioned them in the "Leaders" quadrant in the Gartner Inc. 2012 Magic Quadrant for Network Access Control (NAC) (1), and Frost & Sullivan (2) has acclaimed the company as the largest independent NAC vendor and one that is growing the fastest in the market.
In addition to CounterACT, ForeScout Mobile and ForeScout MDM offer a cost-effective, flexible approach for BYOD and mobile device lifecycle management. The broad product portfolio allows IT organizations to gain unified visibility and automated control for all wired and wireless, mobile and PC devices, regardless of who owns the devices.
More than 50 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated in the Global Excellence Awards, and their average scores determined the 2013 Global Excellence Awards Finalists and Winners.
