Skybox Security Suite Review

Provides insight and context from multiple threat logs and prioritizes remediation

What is our primary use case?

Aside from Firewall Assurance, we use Vulnerability Control and Change Manager to prioritize and focus on key risks.

How has it helped my organization?

Focuses resources on business-critical remediation, as opposed to remediation that is quantity-based.

What is most valuable?

The platform provides insight and context from many threat logs and prioritizes them. 

There is not anything on the market that 

  • correlates logs and threats and prioritizes 
  • provides network maps
  • provides change result context and resulting vulnerability 

for the network/enterprise.

What needs improvement?

As a reseller, I feel the marketing of this product could be better. It seems awareness is a bit low. We are trying to get the message out. I equate it to the early Palo Alto Networks days, where we had to market the concept of what a next-gen firewall was before we could get customers to buy in.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues with scalability.

How is customer service and technical support?

Technical support is excellent.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We use several different solutions: Qualys, ServiceNow, Rapid7. We did not switch but have Skybox ingest all logs to provide an action plan.

How was the initial setup?

The setup is straightforward; clear instructions.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

FireMon, RedSeal.

What other advice do I have?

Educate other IT teams about its value.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: Reseller.
