I think the most valuable feature is that the port-based 802.1x configuration on switch ports is not required. It operates by listening to the wire and talking to networking devices. That is a huge reduction in configuration complexity.

You can quickly filter your view of devices and zero in on the ones you want using a variety of tools, such as what subnet it is on or what it has been classified as.

Another good thing about the product that it can examine every endpoint and give information about it, even IoT devices.

Forescout Platform is a very good NAC solution.

It's a very good product.

The agentless visibility is definitely unmatched and outstanding. 

The actions that the agentless visibility, allow us to perform on the endpoint, are really amazing, especially in the way that it is done. 

It is a good solution, Garner rated because their leadership quadrant position is responsible for their market.

Its feature that I have found most valuable is that it is very granular. You can configure granular controls just as you want those policies to be implemented. It gives you that flexibility to go granular in how you want your controls to be implemented. That's something I like about it. 

The pricing, technical support, stability, scalability, initial set up, interface, dashboards, management, and monitoring are fantastic. They are excellent. 

The licensing of the solution is pretty simple. The process of deploying the solution is pretty straightforward. The dashboard, in terms of monitoring and management, is pretty simple. Maybe because I have a very robust technological background is why I don't struggle with these things. In terms of management, deployment, and support, although I really don't require their support, so far, so good.

This is far better than any other Mac solution. Within three or four days, we have complete visibility of your infrastructure on the network. Compared to other solutions, the deployment of the solution is easier and we can close the project quickly.

A very valuable feature is the discovery mode. It covers all types of devices on the network, which we didn't know existed.

Forescout Platform's most valuable features are that it is very granular. We are able to cull out a lot of information about our particular device or endpoint. The configuration and the visibility are very seamless. Overall the solution is very easy to handle and it's very comprehensive.

We have visibility of all the hidden assets and there are various versions of implementations of an AV in our environment. From the Forescout Platform, we have clarity of the device, and all the different versions reported in a simple dashboard. The number of attacks has been minimal. After this installation, we didn't have any kind of noticeable incident.

Forescout Platform provides multiple features. They have a very effective device fingerprinting in their cloud. You do not need to add any devices manually, such as in Mac devices. Other solutions you have to add IoT devices and OT devices manually. This is one of the major areas that Forescout Platform is excelling in.

There are features that you can protect your organization.

I can integrate Forescout with products from multiple vendors in my environment, and also, the integration is searchable. It can be used with 802.1X and non-802.1X to integrate with my existing network. I don't need to upgrade any existing networks in my system, and I don't need to replace existing devices to integrate with Forescout. I find value in not having to spend money upgrading existing devices and networks.
