DISA OKs Security Technical Implementation Guide for ForeScout’s Device Discovery Tech

ForeScout Technologies has received Security Technical Implementation Guide validation from the Defense Information Systems Agency for a technology product designed to help government customers discover, manage and classify multiple devices and applications.

The STIG validation for CounterACT follows an agreement signed between ForeScout and the Defense Department through Enterprise Software Initiative program, the company said Monday.
