The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has implemented the use of Forescout Technologies-made cybersecurity products across 280 facilities.

The company said Thursday its products now work to secure 1.3M unique devices used for the department's data centers.

Forescout's platform allows VA to protect devices used for information technology, biomedical and internet of things activities.

The system utilizes technology designed to identify and classify devices via a combination of active and passive processes. The device then undergoes a security assessment through the platform.

Forescout-protected VA components include the Veterans Health Administration and the Veteran's Benefits Administration.

Matt Hartley, vice president for Americas at Forescout, said the company is proud to help VA address cybersecurity threats under the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation program.
