Forescout & Microsoft to Secure Managed and Unmanaged Devices

Forescout Solutions Now Available in Microsoft Azure Marketplace

Forescout Technologies, Inc., a global cybersecurity leader, today announced a strategic partnership to help customers protect every enterprise asset, both managed and unmanaged. This collaboration addresses a growing need for comprehensive security across all connected devices with a focus on securing IoT, medical, and OT environments.

With the exponential growth of connected devices in IT and OT landscapes, companies are challenged with managing and securing numerous unmanaged and un-agentable assets. Recognizing the need to secure these critical assets, Forescout and Microsoft provide a scalable backbone to deliver an enhanced competitive advantage and present a strong value proposition anchored by a vision that a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy requires both a host and network-based approach based on visibility, risk, detection, and response capabilities.

“Microsoft has a large-scale security business, which has some great synergies with our solutions,” said Forescout CEO, Barry Mainz. “Forescout has already been working with Microsoft, to support several existing customers, including some of the largest organizations in the world. Cybersecurity delivery at this scale requires a new level of collaboration. Our strategic alignment with Microsoft will accelerate our mission to provide comprehensive security across both managed and unmanaged devices to help customers further strengthen the security of their modern enterprises.”
