Forescout and Allied Telesis have announced a collaboration in which Allied Telesis’ Vista Manager Ex network management solution will be integrated with Forescout’s Continuum Platform. Customers can now leverage Forescout’s unrivaled device discovery capabilities to improve the security and manageability of their enterprise networks.
The integration of Vista Manager and Forescout provides complete network topology and endpoint device information. Vista Manager uses graphic visualization to quickly identify the connected network segment from the devices in the dashboard map. The map updates with any status change to ensure that the information is always up to date. The dashboard provides easy access to device discovery, visualization, monitoring, and traffic analysis features.
Digital resources, BYOD policies, and third-party devices, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), security cameras, and IP phones, all necessitate wired and wireless access on corporate networks. Prior to today’s explosion in the number and variety of devices in use, remote management was made possible by installing software agents on the devices themselves. Organizations must devise methods for collecting, visualizing, and controlling network assets while not overburdening operational staff to successfully manage this complex environment.
Allied Telesis’ Vista Manager is a graphical network dashboard that simplifies the management of enterprise wired, wireless, and wide-area networks. Originally designed as a graphical interface for the company’s network automation tool, Autonomous Management Framework (AMF), the latest update elevates Vista Manager to a true vendor-agnostic management solution.
Rahul Gupta, Chief Technology Officer at Allied Telesis commented, “We’re delighted to launch an integration with an industry leader like Forescout. Their agentless device discovery and automated security features are second-to-none, and together with our Vista Manager network dashboard, we have a powerful solution for enterprises that is very easy to use.”
The Forescout integration with Vista Manager provides simple plug-in style integration for easy Forescout Continuum installation. Forescout’s agentless discovery technology detects network devices automatically. Discovered devices are added to the network topology and labeled with meaningful icons so that they can be easily identified and controlled.
