ForeScout Technologies updated IDS uses counterintelligence to provide enterprises with an early-warning system to better secure network perimeters from attacks. But this extra layer of protection is expensive.

SHORT-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // ActiveScout is easy to install in the front line of any network, and its default policies will enable IT managers to quickly start looking for potential attacks.

LONG-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // ActiveScout IDS will in the long run be a better network safeguard than signature-based products because it can detect reconnaissance events, even from unknown attacks. When properly configured, ActiveScout runs automatically and requires minimal maintenance.

PROS // ActiveResponse technology provides early attack detection and prevention; easy to set up.

CONS // Expensive; lacks Gigabit Ethernet support.
