BYOD and Continuous Compliance Trends Drive ForeScout to Achieve Record Bookings and Customer Growth
(GlobeNewswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Cupertino, Calif., Jan. 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ForeScout Technologies,
Inc., the leading provider of real-time network security solutions
for Global 1000 enterprises and government organizations, today
announced record corporate growth in 2012. Fueled by massive
adoption of BYOD in the enterprise and market leading innovations
access control (NAC) and endpoint compliance, the company's
bookings increased by more than 66 percent while its installed base
grew to 1,400 global customers in 2012.
There were many drivers for NAC growth in 2012, but none as
strong as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). According to
Gartner1, "The BYOD trend continues to be the major
driver in NAC adoption. NAC vendors must have flexible approaches
(partnerships and/or internally developed capabilities) for
enforcing policies on the use of personally owned devices. Mobility
and BYOD trends have increased demand, and the largest NAC
suppliers have seen strong increases in growth. Driven by these
trends, we expect market growth of approximately 63 percent in 2013
as businesses are spending on mobile device management (MDM) and
NAC as the primary means for meeting demand of personally owned
smartphones and tablets, while containing risks."
"We continue to see substantial global demand for tools that
provide real-time visibility and automated control given that IT
must embrace greater device, application, user and access
diversity," said Gord Boyce, CEO of ForeScout. "I'm proud of our
team's ability to manage growth and meet evolving customer
requirements. As we look to 2013, we'll continue to innovate and
help our customers secure enterprise mobility and endpoint
