Omnicom Media Group Taps ForeScout CounterACT to Reduce Risks and Improve Security for 38 Offices across EMEA

CUPERTINO, Calif. — 11 June 2013 — ForeScout Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of real-time network security solutions for Global 1000 enterprises and government organisations, announced today that Omnicom Media Group (OMG), the media services division of Omnicom Group Inc. (NYSE: OMC), the leading global advertising, marketing and corporate communications company, has selected ForeScout CounterACT™ to deliver real-time visibility and protect network resources for its 38 offices and 5,500 employees in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

After successful deployment in its U.S. offices, OMG chose to rollout ForeScout’s award-winning network access control (NAC) solution, CounterACT, across its international network. Key factors prompting this decision included: CounterACT’s ability to support OMG’s operating environment; the NAC appliance’s integrated functionality; the sheer level of network visibility provided via an agentless approach and the means to phase in security policy without disrupting the user experience.

David King, technical services director, EMEA, for Omnicom Media Group, said, “The CounterACT platform easily adapted to our network infrastructure – it literally only took a few days to deploy. As with most implementations, we are learning and tweaking functions and expanding policies every month. Most recently we deployed CounterACT in Norway, which took less than a day since we could apply many of the same rules used in the U.K. office. We are also looking to rollout in Spain, France, the Czech Republic and Italy this year, which reflects NAC’s value to our business.”

With CounterACT in place, OMG is ready for the inevitable move towards strong policy enforcement and security control of personal mobile devices (BYOD). This is critical in a creative workplace where employees want – and expect – to be able to use their iPads, iPhones and Android smartphones.

“Media companies such as OMG harbour a wealth of creativity which must not be stifled by technology. CounterACT fits this environment perfectly, as it delivers the real-time endpoint visibility and network protection OMG needed, without disrupting productivity. We welcome other media organisations to test-drive CounterACT for themselves and experience the extensive benefits,” said John Hagerty, EMEA sales director for ForeScout.
