Haworth implements CounterACT NAC appliances from ForeScout.

TELECOMWORLDWIRE-2 October 2008-Haworth implements CounterACT NAC appliances from ForeScout(C)1994-2008 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

ForeScout Technologies Inc, a provider of clientless network access control (NAC) and policy management solutions, announced on Wednesday (1 October) that Haworth, a designer and manufacturer of office furniture and adaptable workspaces, has deployed the CounterACT family of NAC appliances as part of its global security initiative.

Haworth said it selected CounterACT because it offered the levels of control the company needed and integrated quickly with its existing heterogeneous network.

According to the company, CounterACT combines clientless NAC and signatureless intrusion prevention to ensure all connected and connecting devices are in compliance with network security policies and are free of self-propagating threats. The solution integrates into any network environment without the need for upgrades or infrastructure changes and enables enterprises to tailor enforcement actions to match the level of policy violations, ensuring user disruption only occurs when it is warranted or required by the IT staff.

The solution reportedly enforces network security policies across all managed and unmanaged network devices, including desktops and laptops, as well as non-OS devices such as VoIP phones, handhelds and network printers, without the need for a software agent.

No financial details were disclosed.
