Forescout Frontline is a new threat hunting service from Forescout Technologies. It leverages a team of expert cybersecurity analysts to support cybersecurity teams by proactively identifying risks, enabling accelerated incident response, and maturing security posture. Forescout is providing this complimentary service to organizations that lack the internal resources and visibility required to defend themselves against cybersecurity attacks such as ransomware and advanced persistent threats.
Many organizations employ multiple security tools across teams to assist in the identification of threats and risks. However, due to siloed views of IT, IoT, IoMT, or OT assets, insights may be limited. A variety of these asset types typically exist across an organization’s digital terrain and are frequently interconnected, implying that cybersecurity risk must be identified and addressed holistically.
Shawn Taylor, vice president of Threat Defense at Forescout, “Cybersecurity attacks are on the rise. Simultaneously, cybersecurity teams are perennially understaffed and under-resourced. This has created a perfect storm. Organizations are under immense pressure to cope with the scale and speed of attacks and the havoc caused by adversaries. Forescout is launching this new service to help organizations defend against attacks by providing a complete and holistic view of their assets.”
The Threat Hunting and Risk Identification Service, delivered by Forescout Frontline analysts, overcome staffing resource and asset visibility challenges to uncover threats and identify risks that would otherwise go unnoticed. Frontline will assist organizations against cyber threats and vulnerabilities, and help them to discover, validate, and prioritize all assets, including IT, IoT, IoMT, and OT. It will examine the context and risk factors for all findings along with effective risk mitigation and remediation strategies.
Forescout Frontline levels cybersecurity by operationalizing vulnerability research and threat intelligence produced by Forescout’s Vedere Labs and enhancing it with the Forescout Continuum Platform to provide threat hunting services across multiple dimensions. Forescout Frontline analysts are former public and private sector threat hunters with training in threat detection and incident response.
