NWRDC Adds ForeScout CounterACT® to its Service Catalog

Northwest Regional Data Center (NWRDC) has partnered with SHI International to bring the ForeScout CounterACT® solution to our service catalog. Unlike traditional network security tools, CounterACT can protect networks against the increasing number of insider threats, including wireless and BYOD users, Internet of Things (IoT) devices and rogue devices. CounterACT is an agentless physical or virtual security appliance that dynamically identifies and evaluates network endpoints and applications the instant they connect to a network. It determines the user, owner, operating system, device configuration, software, services, patch state and the presence of security agents, while providing remediation, control and continuous monitoring of these devices. Should a device fail compliance, numerous action-based policies can be taken by alerting administrators, triggering remediation or isolation, and limiting or fully blocking network layer access.

CounterACT performs these actions on corporate, non-corporate, BYOD endpoints and non-traditional devices without requiring software agents or previous device knowledge. It deploys quickly into existing environments and rarely requires infrastructure changes, upgrades or endpoint reconfiguration.

Serving public and not-for-profit entities for over forty-five years, the NWRDC is one of Florida’s leading computing providers for government and educational communities. NWRDC’s status as an auxiliary of Florida State University allows public entities to contract directly with us for a number of IT support solutions without engaging in a lengthy procurement bid process. 

Contact NWRDC to discuss your individual service needs and requirements. We will work with SHI to develop a scope of work and detailed price quote for your CounterACT solution.
