The Silicon Review
Established in 2002, Skybox is a privately held company with worldwide sales and support teams serving an international customer base of Global 2000 enterprises and government agencies. With unparalleled visibility and context-aware intelligence of the attack surface, Skybox solutions drive effective vulnerability and threat management, firewall management and continuous compliance monitoring.
Skybox gives security leaders the cybersecurity management solutions they need to eliminate attack vectors and safeguard business data and services every day. It uses analytics to prioritize an organization’s risk exposures and recommends informed action to best address those exposures. These capabilities extend across highly complex networks, including those in physical, virtual, cloud and operational technology (OT) environments. By integrating with more than 120 networking and security technologies, the company’s broad platform, the Skybox Security enables organizations to reduce security risks that attackers can find and exploit, such as device misconfigurations and policy violations, as well as exposed and unpatched vulnerabilities.
The Skybox Platform
Cybersecurity Management on an Enterprise Scale
Reduce your attack surface and contain cyberattacks fast with a cybersecurity management solution that gives you total visibility and actionable security intelligence. The Skybox Platform combines firewall and network device data with vulnerability and threat intelligence, prioritizing security issues in the context of your unique environment. Powerful attack vector analytics reduce response times and risks, bringing firewall, vulnerability, and threat management processes for complex networks under control.
Get unprecedented visibility of the attack surface, including indicators of exposure (IOEs). 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 makes it easier for operational teams to understand and discuss security risks and cyber threats — and plan how to address them. Horizon tracks risk levels over time, so status and progress can easily be communicated with security stakeholders — including the C-suite and the board.
Skybox Vulnerability Control
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 modeling 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.
Skybox Threat Manager
Consolidate threat intelligence from multiple sources in a normalized view to pinpoint your most critical risks. Harness risk-based security analytics to prioritize threats and optimize your response for your organization. Add valuable threat intelligence to your vulnerability analysis with Threat Manager data to better understand your risk.
Skybox Firewall Assurance
Secure and optimize your firewalls and keep rulesets clean with automated firewall rule lifecycle 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.
Skybox Change Manager
Streamline daily firewall change management tasks with an automated workflow that speeds up processes from planning to execution. Check each proposed change for security and compliance with automated, proactive risk assessments, and track every step for a full audit trail.
Change Manager’s Network Mode also lets you visualize proposed change routes to see details surrounding the change, identify relevant firewalls and plan necessary actions.
Skybox Network Assurance
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 the 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.
The Approach: An Integrated Platform for Security in Context
Skybox empowers security managers to automatically turn vast amounts of data into contextual, actionable intelligence, and to establish a mature enterprise security management program. By combining powerful security analytics software with data integration, network modeling, automation and vulnerability and threat intelligence, Skybox gives you immediate insight into your biggest risks and how to deal with them.
With an integrated security platform, use "big picture" visibility to make fast, informed decisions to keep your organization secure, compliant and running smoothly now and into the future.
