 ForeScout Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of pervasive network security solutions for Fortune 2000 enterprises and government organizations, today announced its CounterACT™ platform has received gold status in the Network Security category of the 2014 Govies Government Security Awards competition. The awards recognize the outstanding solutions that address security challenges in government agencies.

ForeScout CounterACT provides government agencies with an automated solution to more efficiently control network access and enforce essential security controls. Furthermore, CounterACT helps address the advanced network security standards and directives that many agencies need to comply with, such as:

  • Port authentication
  • Protection against rogue and unauthorized devices
  • Mitigation of endpoint compliance violations
  • IAVA compliance
  • Continuous monitoring and mitigation

“We are honored to be awarded gold in the 2014 Govies for our continued efforts in securing government agencies,” said Wallace Sann, federal CTO at ForeScout. “As cybersecurity threats increase in the federal space, agencies must take preemptive measures by automating their security controls to continuously monitor and mitigate security exposures and risks.”

The winners were selected by a panel of information security professionals using the following criteria: features, innovation, user friendliness, interoperability, quality, design, market opportunity, impact in the security industry, technical advances and scalability.

The winners of each category were announced in the Govies Awards booth at the GovSec Conference & Expo on May 13 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.  For more information, visit:http://govsecinfo.com/events/govsec-2014/information/expo/govies.aspx.
