Building on previous systems, Forescout and Microsoft will be focusing on improving endpoint security across mobile, cloud and data centers.
Forescout Technologies (NASDAQ:FSCT), security company announced that it will be extending security integration across Microsoft’s (NASDAQ:MSFT) unified endpoint management solution. Security is set to be enhanced across mobile, cloud and data centers, among others.
As quoted in the press release:
“Nearly every employee today is using corporate or personal devices in the workplace, and thus the management of device hygiene and compliance is crucial,” said Pedro Abreu, chief product and strategy officer at Forescout. “Our expanded work with Microsoft empowers our joint customers to embrace the emerging cloud- and mobile-first world by addressing the complicated security and compliance challenges through device visibility and control.”
Mobile devices and cloud instances expand the enterprise attack surface and create compliance challenges. To address these risks and achieve compliance, organizations need visibility into all devices across physical and virtual environments. The joint Forescout and Microsoft solutions increase security operations efficiency and reduce cost via orchestration of workflows and automation of remediation and response.
