Able to integrate with a wide spectrum of industry security platforms, ForeScout offers:

• Industry-recognised leadership: The CRN Top 100 list is based on feedback gathered from technology solution providers by CRN editors throughout the year. The rankings reflect the executives’ channel influence, effectiveness and visibility, along with their impact on business driven through the IT channel. Among the criteria considered are channel sales volume, vendors’ channel investment and resources, and channel advocacy and performance as measured by The Channel Company’s CRN Intelligence research arm, which includes its esteemed Annual Report Card and Channel Champions reports.
