ForeScout and CrowdStrike Form Strategic Alliance for Advanced Security

Published On: October 23, 2017Categories: Buzz, Uncategorized

ForeScout Technologies, Inc., an IoT security company, and CrowdStrike, an endpoint security company, have jointly announced a strategic alliance that will leverage both product lines towards enhanced visibility, threat detection and security response for joint customers. Through this partnership, the two companies will monitor threats across endpoint and network tiers, share threat analytics and extend protection and policy control to unmanaged BYOD and IoT devices.

“Enterprises continue to be impacted by massive data breaches and cybersecurity attacks largely due to blind spots caused by undetected devices,” said Michael DeCesare, president and CEO of ForeScout. “The collaboration and joint value of two market-leading cybersecurity companies will provide our customers with increased visibility and advanced threat analytics for better protection against malicious activity.”

Aside from visibility threat intelligence, and posture assessment across network-connected devices, potential benefits include improved agent health and compliance, joint threat hunting for Indicators of Attack (IoAs) across endpoint and network tiers, and automated threat response.

The two companies also intend to build an integrated solution to further support their joint customers through delivery of a more cohesive security posture that can be delivered independently.
