ForeScout Technologies, Inc., provider of automated security control solutions for Fortune 1000 enterprises and government organizations, today announced that International Rectifier has selected ForeScout CounterACT to enforce access and endpoint security policies. International Rectifier joins the expanding list of customers who have replaced their earlier generation network access control (NAC) solution with ForeScout CounterACT to gain real-time visibility and automated control.
After extensively evaluating and benchmarking the leading NAC vendors, International Rectifier selected ForeScout, which was more integrated; easier to use, implement and manage; and did not adversely affect user experience. The company was able to quickly deploy multiple CounterACT appliances and centrally manage all 8,500 devices across multiple office locations from one console and without changing their existing infrastructure. The company now manages known users and their devices, as well as identifies guests and unauthorized computers and dynamically directs them to a separate, Internet-only VLAN.
