The ForeScout CounterACT device visibility platform provides insight into the diverse types of devices connected across government organizations’ heterogeneous networks—from campus and data center to cloud and operational technology (OT) networks. CounterACT’s agentless technology discovers, classifies and assesses traditional and IoT devices that touch government networks. This allows agencies to auto classify connected assets using passive and active profiling techniques and leverage insight from more than three million devices maintained in ForeScout’s Device Cloud.
