How to Reduce Risk by Aligning with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework

Forescout supports the NIST CSF with comprehensive IT/OT visibility and automated mitigation across the enterprise of connected things.

A converged IT-OT platform can simplify adoption of the NIST CSF (National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework) in the following ways:

Device visibility:NIST CSF can only be accomplished with comprehensive visibility. Forescout continuously identifies, classifies and assesses every IP-connected device – managed and unmanaged – that touches your extended enterprise network, allowing you to visualize the security posture of each device and have a complete picture of the network. Forescout also improves asset inventory by detecting serial-attached ICS devices by monitoring communications between the programmable logic controller (PLC) and its management devices.

Zero Trust: Network access control and network segmentation techniques can deliver Zero Trust across the enterprise IT infrastructure. With Forescout’s network segmentation capabilities, you can logically separate your network into secure zones to contain any damage.

Compliance: Forescout’s comprehensive and continuous monitoring helps ensure device and regulatory compliance to reduce cyber and operational risk and adhere to industry regulations and standards.
