Stroud College’s IT team evaluated several diff erent vendors’ NAC products - including Cisco and Bradford Networks – as well as an open-source NAC solution. None of these solutions met all of the campus’s needs.

ForeScout CounterACT proved to be the best choice. According to Tim Hanks, IT Services Manager at Stroud College, “ForeScout CounterACT worked with our existing network infrastructure really well. CounterACT provided the basic network access control features that we were looking for, plus it included really good intrusion detection and threat blocking features. We found CounterACT to be both incredibly powerful and very intuitive to use!”
