"Forescout's solution presents full device visibility by allowing enterprises to see and classify devices on their networks to take a complete inventory, delivering a real-time view of the assets,"  said Swetha Krishnamoorthi,  Industry Analyst.  "The company monitors data exchanged at the protocol level and then leverages its patented technology and a library of more than 2,100 ICS-specific threat indicators to detect anomalous activity throughout network communications, while simultaneously using threat intelligence to proactively detect cyber threats."
