ForeScout CounterACT offers healthcare IT organizations an automated means to gain real-time visibility and control over all users and devices accessing network resources and sensitive information.

Leveraging a providers' existing infrastructure, the ForeScout CounterACT appliance can identify, assess, and apply appropriate network access controls according to built-in policies based on user, device, system, and application attributes without requiring software running on the endpoint device, including devices such as patient monitoring systems.

From a single console, operators can monitor and report on all network resource access. The product also integrates guest networking, mobile security, and endpoint security capabilities.

Miami Children's Hospital, Nationwide Children's Hospital, and Lehigh Valley Hospital and Health Network are among customers using ForeScout CounterAct.
