ForeScout and HP ArcSight have announced a product integration to help IT organisations increase their efficiency and react more quickly to security incidents.

Users of the ForeScout NAC platform and the HP ArcSight ESM will gain rich endpoint configuration, access, identity and security information, as well as be able to readily enforce security policies and mitigate threats enterprise-wide through ForeScout CounterACT.

According to ForeScout, the combination will give users a single administrative control to gain full visibility of all aspects of IT infrastructure and security risks from within the HP ArcSight ESM console.

It also said network access control and automatic remediation and mitigation are also possible, and users can manage network access from employee or customer-owned smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices.

Sam Davis, vice president of business development at ForeScout, said: “Our relationship with HP ArcSight provides products that take full advantage of the power and flexibility that both the ArcSight SIEM and CounterACT platforms offer. As a result, customers can realise more extensive operational awareness and security control.”

Dan Barahona, vice president of business development at HP ArcSight, said: “The work we have done with ForeScout allows HP ArcSight customers to leverage the capabilities of the ForeScout solutions, including real-time host asset intelligence and remediation. This enables organisations to identify, and respond quickly to, security and compliance issues.”
