Forescout Technologies Receives New Department of Defense Contract for C2C Cybersecurity Program

The Department of Defense has awarded Forescout Technologies a new contract for the fourth stage of the Comply-to-Connect cybersecurity program.

Forescout noted that the C2C program’s first three phases, for which it had also won contracts, are well underway in providing visibility, compliance assessment and automated remediation. According to Forescout, the new contract involves configuring the enforcement of zero trust access principles throughout the DOD Information Network. The new contract will also integrate risk management into the existing C2C platform, Forescout said.

Forescout’s CEO, Barry Mainz, said that through the C2C, the company is delivering confidence to each DODIN user “that their slice of the network is secure and ready for them to accomplish their mission.”

Forescout won the initial phase of the C2C program in September 2020, with its technology used as the foundation to secure the authentication, authorization, compliance assessment and automated remediation of devices linked to DODIN.

The Forescout platform now also provides capabilities for the C2C security framework serving as the first pillar of the Defense Information System Agency’s Thunderdome zero trust program, the company added.
