Forescout Announces Intent to Acquire Cysiv to Deliver Data-Powered Threat Detection and Response
Forescout Technologies, Inc., the global leader in automated cybersecurity, today announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Cysiv, a cybersecurity innovator that uses its cloud platform to improve detection and response of true threats. With this acquisition, Forescout will leverage Cysiv’s threat detection engine to analyze a wealth of asset and network communications data automatically collected by Forescout’s platform. This comprehensive data across IT, IoT, OT and IoMT devices, as well as other essential data sources, enables better true threat detection and response so customers can operate more securely and efficiently. Upon the close of the acquisition, Cysiv will join Forescout.
“Organizations need to be able to reduce the billions of data points on their networks to a handful of actionable true threats – automatically. Together with Cysiv, Forescout will provide customers with the most powerful platform for automated cybersecurity across their digital terrains,” said Wael Mohamed, CEO of Forescout. “Upon close, the acquisition will help our customers leverage actionable threat intelligence from comprehensive data collected by Forescout and analyzed by Cysiv. We will receive far more than just great technology in this acquisition. The Cysiv team is exceptional, and our two organizations are highly complementary.”
Today, organizations are faced with the immense pressure to secure their networks. CIOs and CISOs have experienced rapid growth in the volume and diversity of managed and unmanaged devices, including IoT devices, that has given rise to increased risks and cybersecurity threats, coinciding with a drop in available cybersecurity resources. With the rapid adoption of cloud, and a cloud-first mindset that’s been accelerated by the work-from-anywhere shift of the past two years, enterprises are particularly concerned with managing threats to these fluid threat environments. This has resulted in organizations not being able to effectively manage the detection, investigation, escalation and response of true threats, particularly as the threat landscape and unmanaged device landscape have become more complex.
Existing solutions for threat detection and response, such as EDR, require the use of agents on managed devices. This means that organizations dependent on an agent-based approach for threat detection and response are not able to look for threats coming from the majority of their connected devices, particularly critical assets like IoT, IoMT and OT.
For over a decade, Forescout’s ability to deeply integrate into the fabric of customers’ networks has enabled it to collect real-time data for all connected assets and users, together with the communications among those assets and users. Customers have been asking Forescout to leverage this comprehensive data to provide greater insight into threats for all types of assets and to enable faster, more automated response and remediation.
“We have always been on a mission to provide better threat detection and faster response,” said Partha Panda, CEO and co-founder of Cysiv. “After successfully partnering together for the last year, we are thrilled to join Forescout as we continue on the next stage of our journey. The combination of Forescout and Cysiv will provide organizations with best-in-class threat detection together with automated incident prioritization and automated response.”
The acquisition is expected to close in July, 2022, subject to the satisfaction of closing conditions and receipt of applicable regulatory approvals and comes on the heels of its acquisition of CyberMDX which further strengthens Forescout’s industry-leading IT, IoT and OT device coverage with IoMT expertise.

Suzano outlines ESG milestone achievements and commitments at second annual ESG call24.6.2022 16:14:00 CEST | Press release
Suzano, the world’s largest hardwood pulp producer, today held its second annual ESG Call centered around its ambition to be a ‘regenerative company for a regenerative society’. Today’s ESG Call spotlighted measurable progress and ambitions across three core areas of action: climate change, biodiversity and social development. On Climate Change, the ACT initiative of the French Government and CDP scored Suzano ahead of its pulp and paper industry peers in virtually every metric. In 2021, Suzano brought forward its target for removing 40 million tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere from 2030 to 2025 which is being achieved through improvements to its industrial processes, such as systematically replacing the use of fossil fuels at its industrial plants with biomass, and through conversion of degraded land. As part of the company’s social commitments, Suzano launched a target in 2020 to lift 200,000 people out of poverty. This is more than pertinent, given that in Brazil, 10% of th
