In my continuing series on establishing a balanced cybersecurity portfolio, I wanted to return again to ForeScout, which I profiled in a previous article. In my earlier piece, I showed how the visibility ForeScout provides into all the devices connected to your network can bolster your existing security systems. In this piece, I wanted to explore how ForeScout’s ability to integrate and enhance other cybersecurity products could be a model for the way companies think about their cybersecurity approach as a whole.

What I’ve shown throughout my series on this topic is that no company can ever be completely safe. Therefore, to gain all the capabilities organizations need in their portfolio, everything from identifying to responding to threats, companies have to create a portfolio of cybersecurity products tailored to their unique needs that doesn’t blow their budget.

But it should also be clear by now that no one product will be sufficient to cover every aspect of a company’s cybersecurity needs. That’s why I’ve emphasized the portfolio approach. For this approach to work, it’s best for companies to adopt a range of products that work together in an integrated fashion.

Here’s how ForeScout does just that.

There’s an old sports adage that the best players make the other players around them better. That’s why players like Tom Brady and Lebron James are so successful — they create a team where everyone reaches their potential.

In the same way, you need cybersecurity products that complement each other and build on one another’s strengths.

That’s what ForeScout is designed to do. As I highlighted in my earlier piece on the company, ForeScout’s goal is to give companies visibility into every device that is connected to their network and whether that device is posing a risk or not. If it does, ForeScout offers companies a variety of controls to respond.
