ForeScout is a security company that specializes in giving organizations agentless visibility and control of both traditional and IoT devices connected to the network. That’s probably super-interesting if you’re a IT security practitioner, but if you’re not, you’re probably stifling a yawn about now.
But remember, if you will, that the first planned IPO of 2017 — that of AppDynamics — got canceled very much at the last minute when the company was acquired by Cisco. So given we’re yet to see a 2017 IPO, and that ForeScout is rumored to have confidentially filed its documentation for an IPO recently, anything newsy from ForeScout’s HQ gets a little more interesting.
