ForeScout Technologies Inc., a provider of network security software, today announced interoperability between ForeScout CounterACT network security and SAP Afaria mobile device management (MDM) platforms.

ForeScout says the combination enables companies to accelerate and fortify the provisioning, administration and security of corporate and personal mobile devices, applications and data in the enterprise.

ForeScout adds that CounterACT and SAP Afaria offer the ability to see and detect all unmanaged, corporate and personal mobile devices, such as iPads, iPhones and Androids; readily apply security policy based on user, role and device; trigger SAP Afaria to profile check managed devices upon network resource request to detect jail-broken, rooted and non-compliant handhelds. The union also will allow companies to fortify a range of user, device, application and data policies though network-enforced controls; provide powerful compliance rules engines at the device and network level; and provide unified visibility and reporting for all mobile endpoint devices.
