ForeScout cites “network visibility and control” (the ability to see and direct all the devices connected to a network) as among its strengths. KPMG, in a press release, is touted for its “cybersecurity experience to support product implementation, process development and system integration for the full suite of ForeScout’s flexible, large-scale network visibility, security and automation solutions.”
“With the explosion of network-connected IoT devices, the number of corporate unmanaged devices can far exceed that of managed ones and thereby create a widening visibility gap and a security and compliance risk for enterprises around the world,” said Pedro Abreu, senior vice president and chief strategy officer for ForeScout.
“With extensive networking and cybersecurity experience, KPMG will consult with customers and help maximize their ForeScout deployments at a larger scale, allowing them to see and control devices and orchestrate systemwide threat response across campus, data center, cloud and operational technology networks.”
ForeScout’s platform provides agentless visibility, control and discovery of traditional and nontraditional devices.
Michael Ebert, a partner in KPMG’s Cybersecurity Practice, said continuous advancements in technology make security crucial.
“Customers face the challenge of maintaining a high level of security as they increasingly adopt and integrate new and emerging technologies such as mobile devices and applications, IoT, OT and cloud computing,” Ebert said.
