Horizon’s security visualization and mapping capabilities are rooted in Skybox intelligence and analysis of all the layers that make up the attack surface — including assets, hybrid network topology, weaknesses and threats.

Horizon tracks risk levels over time, so status and progress can easily be communicated with security stakeholders — including the C-suite and the board.


Gain total visibility of the vulnerabilities in your attack surface without waiting for a scan. Leverage Skybox Research Lab's vulnerability and threat intelligence, and automatically correlate it to your unique environment. With network modelling and advanced simulations, pinpoint exposed vulnerabilities and other attack vectors. And use context to prioritize vulnerabilities in terms of actual risk and respond to threats with accuracy and efficiency.


Get access to analyst-validated security intelligence, consolidating and verifying information from dozens of public and private feeds. The Research Lab also conducts investigations of sites in the dark web to keep you up to speed with the latest exploits, crime ware and more. The work of the Research Lab is delivered directly to the Skybox Security Suite to identify vulnerability occurrences, contextually prioritize them, find available patches and improve mitigation measures like IPS tuning.


Secure and optimize your firewalls and keep rule sets clean with automated firewall rule life cycle management. With support for nearly every enterprise firewall vendor, you can keep security gaps closed and automate continuous compliance across all firewalls at once. Firewall Assurance also performs “what-if” analysis to see into the future of your network, investigating the security and business impact of proposed changes before they go live.


See your network—no matter how big or complex — with the Skybox network model. Use attack vector analytics to assess proposed network changes, and verify network compliance every day with customizable reporting and metrics.

With the Access Analyzer feature and our support for Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and VMware NSX, Network Assurance visualizes end-to-end access paths — even into virtualized environments — so the right users have the right access anywhere in your network.
