Growth in Enterprise Accounts Results in Record First Half

CUPERTINO, Calif.—July 31, 2007 — ForeScout Technologies, the leading provider of clientless network access control (NAC) for Fortune 500 enterprises and government organisations, today announced that strong results of the first half of 2007, ending June 30, 2007, show the company is on track to well exceed its objective of doubling its 2006 sales success.

“Our record sales achievement and what appears to be a speeding up of the purchasing process support our belief that the NAC market is becoming more streamlined for customers,” said T. Kent Elliott, CEO of ForeScout. “In the early days of a new market, speculation is typically all that underpins the confidence of investors, employees and management. The numerous Fortune 500 enterprise customers who continue to make ongoing purchases and deploy ForeScout’s CounterACT NAC appliances increasingly support our opinion that NAC is a concrete market.”

In consultation with customers in full deployment mode, ForeScout expanded CounterACT’s model range and enhanced ease of use to match the needs of the most complex heterogeneous environments. This enabled CounterACT to be quickly rolled out in initial global deployments for new customers in banking, entertainment, federal, military, healthcare, and manufacturing, including some of the most prestigious Global 2000 companies. In addition, CounterACT’s intuitiveness continues to satisfy the demands of the small to medium enterprise.

“We consistently win global enterprise accounts after bakeoffs with competitive infrastructure and security companies—by customers purchasing over a million dollars in products,” stated Ray Wizbowski, vice president of marketing for ForeScout. “The sharp increase in demand for our CounterACT NAC products in the first half of 2007 and a record-setting pipeline for the rest of the year makes us certain the NAC market will continue its solid growth curve. The remainder of 2007 as well as 2008 will reveal which companies have the product and expertise to meet customers’ demands and are able to be real, long-term NAC contenders.”
