Media Group deploys ForeScout solution

Share this article:

Omnicom Media Group has deployed ForeScout CounterAct to enable mobile connectivity and network visibility and analytics.

Selecting the solution to protect its 38 offices and 5,500 employees in the EMEA region, David King, technical services director EMEA at Omnicom Media Group, said: “The CounterAct platform easily adapted to our network infrastructure – it literally only took a few days to deploy.

“As with most implementations, we are learning and tweaking functions and expanding policies every month. Most recently we deployed CounterAct in Norway, which took less than a day since we could apply many of the same rules used in the UK office. We are also looking to roll out in Spain, France, the Czech Republic and Italy this year, which reflects NAC's value to our business.”

King said that having deployed the solution in the US offices, this would allow the company to allow a 'bring your own device' (BYOD) policy and provide network visibility via an agentless approach and the means to phase in security policy without disrupting the user experience.

John Hagerty, EMEA sales director for ForeScout, said: “Media companies such as Omnicom harbour a wealth of creativity that must not be stifled by technology. CounterAct fits this environment perfectly, as it delivers the real-time endpoint visibility and network protection OMG needed, without disrupting productivity.”
