Dynamic network device and application identification and evaluation
ForeScout CounterACT® is a physical or virtual security solution that dynamically identifies and evaluates network devices and applications the instant they connect to your network. Because CounterACT doesn't require agents, it works with your devices - managed and unmanaged, known and unknown, PC and mobile, embedded and virtual. CounterACT quickly determines the user, owner, operating system, device configuration, software, services, patch state and the presence of security agents. Next, it provides remediation, control and continuous monitoring of these devices as they come and go from the network.
No endpoint agents are required for authentication and network access control, allowing CounterACT to see and control managed, unmanaged and IoT devices.
Optional modules orchestrate information sharing and policy-based security enforcement between CounterACT and leading IT and security management products.
CounterACT works with popular switches, routers, VPNs, firewalls, endpoint operating systems (Windows®, Linux, iOS®, OS X and Android), patch management systems, antivirus systems, directories and ticketing systems—without infrastructure changes or upgrades.

Forescout CounterACT Enterprise Manager
Provides centralised management and control of distributed virtual and physical CounterACT appliances.
Enterprise Manager can be deployed as a physical or virtual management appliance. It oversees ForeScout CounterACT activities and policies and collects information about malicious activity at an appliance, as well as identification, notification, restriction and remediation actions taken by CounterACT. This information is available for display and reporting at the CounterACT Console.
