Vendor failed to adequately understand our requirements and complexity and scoped our implementation too small. Resulted in poor solution performance and necessitated buying an additional product at a later date to service complete environment. Product also was not as mature as presented during the sales cycle. Cyber team now working with vendor R&D to resolve performance/functionality issues.
Get a second assessment and validate.
It does work well.
Should have been more bullet-proof, felt like we were doing some of their QA testing for them.
There was not strong leadership or executive engagement for the vendor until we raised issues.
Ensure that there was agreement on the vendor's sizing and that the vendor fully understood the business model.

Most features work as advertised. However, one of the key ones - Guest Wireless control doesn't work as expected despite ForeScout Pro Services setup and tuning.
Write down what's most important to you from the feature set and grill the vendor to provide hard answers.
Would specifically drill down on the wireless networks control feature before making the purchase decision.

At this time the functionality of the platform has been solid. There are some architecture nuances that needed to be worked out and some clear misalignment.
Go slow. ForeScout is an elegant way to black-hole your network. Test the policy before applying control.
Very powerful and flexible.
Better alignment on deployment approach within their teams.
Better internal communication strategy earlier in the effort.
