    Forescout XDR is an eXtended detection and response solution that converts telemetry and logs into high fidelity, SOC-actionable probable threats.

    It automates the detection, investigation, hunt for and response to advanced threats across all connected assets – IT, OT/ICS, IoT and IoMT – from campus to cloud to data center to edge. Forescout XDR combines essential SOC technologies and functions into a unified, cloud-native platform, viewable and actionable from a single console.

    Forescout XDR Business Value

    • Reduces business risk: Reduce the risk and magnitude of a successful attack, business disruption or data breach by eliminating alert noise so you can quickly and accurately detect, investigate, and respond to the broadest range of advanced threats.
    • Optimize security operations: Streamline the analyst function and speed complex investigation and threat-hunting processes with enriched, normalized, and contextualized data correlated to produce a small number of detections that warrant investigation – all in a unified console that integrates with case management systems and other security tools.​
    • Support Compliance: Combine long-term log storage with automated threat detection and threat intelligence to close the potential gap between when a breach or disruption is noticed and when a response action is taken.​
    • Lower costs: Consolidate point solutions (data lake, security analytics, SOAR, UEBA, threat intel platform) and reduce costs related to data onboarding, rules management and analyst turnover with a solution that simplifies and supports their workflow.​
    • Leverage multi-vendor security investments: Derive more value from existing solutions and make better use of asset data and threat intel via automation across case management and incident response systems, sensors (network, endpoint, cloud) and enforcement points. ​

    Improve SOC efficiency by 450x with better detection and response of true threats

    Security operations center (SOC) teams face a daily barrage of incomplete and inaccurate alerts that lack vital contextual information, many of them false positives. As a result, analysts miss critical threats and take longer to investigate and respond to them, increasing the risk of a breach. In fact, the typical SOC receives an estimated 11,000 alerts per day, or 450 alerts per hour – most of them low fidelity, low confidence alerts, and false positives. 

    With Forescout XDR, that number is reduced to one SOC-actionable detection an hour – or one probable threat that warrants human investigation.

    Key Features

    • Data ingestion: Natively supports Forescout eyeSight, eyeInspect and Medical Device Security data – and over 170 vendor- and EDR-agnostic sources including: security, infrastructure, enrichment, applications and cloud/SaaS.
    • Data onboarding: Helps ensure that you extract maximum detection value to support your most important use cases. Forescout data engineers work alongside your team to plan and prioritize the data sources to be onboarded, then help configure the data pipeline and ensure your data is being properly parsed, cleansed, normalized, and enriched. ​
    • Advanced data pipeline: Applies a rigorous data science-centric approach to manage data flowing from enterprise-wide sources into its advanced threat detection engine.

    Reduce response time and use fewer resources to address security incidents. With the Threat Stack Oversight service, our experts continuously monitor your cloud environment. We’ll detect and triage high-severity alerts, notify you of suspicious activity, and provide personalized context and recommendations.
