Dubai – MENA Herald: ForeScout Technologies, Inc., a pioneer in agentless cybersecurity, announced today the opening of its Middle East regional office in Dubai to help enterprise organizations and government entities protect against the latest cybersecurity threats. ForeScout’s new presence in Dubai comes at the right time as the proliferation of internet of things (“IoT”) devices connecting to corporate networks is causing security ‘blind spots.’

“ForeScout is committed to protecting organizations in the Middle East against the latest IoT security threats,” said Hamed Diab, Regional Director, ForeScout. “ForeScout helps make the invisible visible. Our technology enables customers to see, control and orchestrate devices the instant they connect to a corporate network without requiring software agents or previous device knowledge.”
According to Gartner, the volume of IoT will reach 30 billion devices by 2020. As organizations in the Middle East continue to invest in IoT to help them innovate within their respective industries, including healthcare, financial services and public sector, it is critical that they have a security strategy as these devices find their way onto the corporate network. The constantly evolving threat landscape means that attacks are becoming more sophisticated and the bad actors are now gaining access to the enterprise through IoT devices that have become the path of least resistance.

To help organizations protect against the latest security threats, ForeScout provides organizations with continuous monitoring across the most comprehensive set of traditional and IoT devices. The technology automates security controls of at-risk devices, easily integrates with more than 70 network, security, mobility and IT management products to orchestrate system-wide security, and helps organizations optimize on existing security investments.
