ForeScout Partners With Canadian VAR

ForeScout Technologies announced that it has signed a VAR agreement with Conexsys Communications

CUPERTINO, Calif. -- ForeScout Technologies, a leading provider of clientless network access control (NAC) for Fortune 500 enterprises and government organizations, today announced that it has signed a valued added reseller (VAR) agreement with Conexsys Communications Ltd., a leading provider of full-service enterprise security and network infrastructure solutions. Conexsys Communications, based in Mississauga, Ontario, will promote and resell ForeScout's clientless NAC solutions throughout Canada.

"Conexsys Communications Limited is excited to partner with ForeScout and provide clientless network access control to our customers across Canada," said Larry Bantle, president and chief executive officer of Conexsys Communications Limited. "ForeScout has demonstrated in benchmarks -- both published and unpublished -- that it has the superior product, and the company is dedicated to ensuring successful implementations -- from the smallest to the largest, global deployments. We look forward to a long and rewarding partnership and our customers' network security will benefit tremendously."

ForeScout's NAC appliance, CounterACT, with its built-in signature-less intrusion prevention engine, protects the network upon device connection from any self-propagating malware and "zero-day" worms, while concurrently enforcing business policies for enterprises by transparently granting access to authorized and compliant users. CounterACT integrates seamlessly into existing networks, offers a full range of measured enforcement options for non-compliant and/or unauthorized users, and enforces security policies for all connected devices without the need for a client/agent on the endpoint.

"We're delighted to welcome Conexsys Communications into our channel program," said Gord Boyce, president of ForeScout. "We didn't go into this lightly -- we took our time in choosing just the right partner, and this will be a boon for customers that need network access solutions that allow tailored policy enforcement and no disruption to business. Conexsys has been delivering and supporting network and network security solutions for over thirty years. Their solid record spoke for itself and we are looking forward to great things with the company."
