Global Manufacturer Reduces Cybersecurity Risk During M&As with Forescout
Since deployment of Forescout’s visibility and control platform, Haworth discovered security gaps and removed over 500 devices that could pose a threat to their IT infrastructure. This was critical with several recent M&As and the newly acquired businesses operating as autonomous IT infrastructures that connect to the company’s corporate network. Understanding the vulnerabilities this can allow in its IT and operational technology (OT) environments, Haworth needed an automated security solution that could control network access, only permit authorized and compliant devices on the network, and protect sensitive systems and data during the mergers as well as daily business operations.
“As a company that continues to innovate and grow, our small security team was struggling with time-consuming manual tasks to keep us secure and compliant,” said

“All organizations with Internet-connected devices are at risk and a successful breach only needs access to one vulnerable device to compromise an entire network,” said
The Forescout Extended Module for Palo Alto Networks NGFW offers customers, like Haworth, an integrated solution that closes security gaps through collaborative workflows, automated information sharing and policy-driven responses. The joint technology dynamically segments and identifies network-connected devices in order to respond to threats across the extended enterprise.
