ForeScout bolsters European operations

Shaking hands

Network security specialist ForeScout Technologies is expanding its European operations in response it says, to customer demand.

The US vendor says it has recruited a number of key personnel in customer development and support throughout the region in response to demand for network security solutions, particularly around BYOD and advance continuous monitoring and mitigation.

UK-based hires include new channel account manager, Jon Martin, as well as a number of global and regional account managers and system engineers.

Says Louise Bulman, ForeScout’s regional VP of sales for EMEA: “We have seen a dramatic increase in EMEA and the DACH sub-region for an easy-to-deploy, flexible and extensible network security platform that can deliver the necessary dynamic access and endpoint compliance oversight and threat response organisations require.

“ForeScout CounterACT is used by many European enterprises to reduce their security risk, meet compliance mandates and enable BYOD. Given the increased demand, we have increased our workforce to ensure that we are able to maintain a high level of service to our channel partners and their customers.”

ForeScout has also unveiled a partner portal to aid field communications and sales support, lead distribution and deal registration, and application for marketing funds. The firm’s two-tier channel programme includes allocation of evaluation units, dedicated ForeScout regional sales and technical support, lead generation and deal protection, training and Market Development Funds (MDF).
