“The powerful Forescout solution that integrates ServiceNow’s offerings helps the State of Utah eliminate network blind spots and maintain an accurate asset inventory at all times, which is critical to achieving regulatory compliance and minimizing security risk,” said Pedro Abreu, chief strategy officer, Forescout. “We believe collaboration across the industry is key and this integrated solution brings together the right ingredients for Utah to orchestrate a successful security management system and as a result, improving its cybersecurity posture, IT efficiencies, and overall bottom line.”
The State of Utah began looking for trusted security partners as manual compliance tasks on its large network were projected to cost more than one million dollars. With Forescout’s ServiceNow integration, Utah is projected to save millions of dollars resulting from faster audits by automating real-time asset management, compliance remediation and incident response workflows.
“As a trusted and strategic digital transformation partner to more than 40 percent of the world’s largest public companies, ServiceNow delivers digital workflows that create great experiences and unlock productivity,” said Pablo Stern, vice president and general manager, IT operations management, ServiceNow. “The combination of our world-class security operations management and IT operations management with Forescout increases operational efficiency, service reliability and cybersecurity effectiveness to transform how people work.”
Utah’s security strategy combines Forescout’s agentless network visibility, continuous monitoring and automated response capabilities with ServiceNow’s asset configuration, automated service mapping and regulatory compliance management. The integrated solution helps Utah enhance asset management, improve operational efficiencies and effectiveness as well as streamline compliance.
