Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The solution's simplicity of use is its most valuable feature.""The port division management was the solution's most valuable aspect for our organization.""The most valuable features are Firewall Assurance and Vulnerability Control.""The most valuable feature is firewall management.""The solution offers very nice dashboards and they've recently added a very good Java-based web interface.""The features that I have found most valuable with Skybox Security Suite, and this is because I work on the security side, are the firewall assurance, the change manager and the vulnerability control. These three features are the most impressive from Skybox Security.""It shows me a client's or an organization's entire network. I can see everything.""It has a good policy management feature and can provide customers with good quality outputs."

More Skybox Security Suite Pros »

"I think that this is a good solution for evaluating vulnerability in the network.""What is useful to me is being able to fulfill very customized scanning policies. In the clinical environment, because of vendor control, we can't perform credential-vulnerability scanning. And network scans, which I've done before, can cause a lot of impact. Being able to create very customized policies to be able to routinely scan and audit our clinical networks, while simultaneously not causing impact, is important to us.""One of the most valuable features is their distributed scan model for allotting engines to work together as a pool and handle multiple scans at once, across multiple environments. Automatic scanning distribution is a distinguishing feature of their toolset.""This solution has a much lower rate of false positives compared to competing products.""The predictive prioritization features are pretty good. They do a lot of research and we trust the research that they do internally. They have knowledge of what's going on with many companies, where we only get a view into what's going on here. So the ability to get best practices out of them as part of this solution, is valuable to us.""Tenable also helps us to focus resources on the vulnerabilities that are most likely to be exploited. And since it is continuously updated, it allows us to reevaluate quickly if there are new vulnerabilities found...""The scans are the most valuable aspect of this solution.""This product has the best results in terms of the lowest number of false-positives and false-negatives."

Cons
"The solution needs to add more automation and orchestration capabilities. Those features would make the solution much stronger.""The solution was quite technical. It would be easier to manage if the solution was more specific about aspects of the solution and provided more advisory around how to use it effectively. It would help users a lot if they were more clear about everything.""The most recent update was not tested with all of the vendors before it was released, so some of the features are misbehaving.""The Network Assurance, which helps to create the network model, is not so rich.""The support could be improved.""The initial setup with Skybox Security is hard. You need one or two strong security engineers on your team.""The price is costly, and I hope they can reduce the cost."

"The web application scanning area can be improved.""If I want to have a very low-managed scan policy, it's a lot of work to create something which is very basic. If I use a tool like Nmap, all I have to do is download it, install it, type in the command, and it's good to go. In Security Center, I have to go through a lot of work to create a policy that's very basic.""It's good at creating information, it's good creating dashboards, it's good at creating reports, but if you want to take that reporting metadata and put it into another tool, that is a little bit lacking.""The vulnerability scan does not work correctly until the access privileges are set by the system administrator.""There's a lot of information being streamed out of the reports. What would be nice, and maybe we just haven't found it, would be more of an executive-type view. We still expect it to collect all this information, but we would like a feature that would allow us to show it to an executive or a director or someone like that and give them some type of high-level overview but not get into the nitty-gritty.""The reporting needs a lot of work on the template.""The integration is very good, although it still needs to improve.""Current web page needs improvement, slows down processes."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The price is not expensive.""Currently, the licensing costs me about $300 USD for the year. This is a huge amount for my environment.""It's expensive."

More Skybox Security Suite Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The licensing costs for this solution are approximately $100,000 US, and I think that covers everything.""The pricing is more than Nexpose.""Costing is pretty reasonable compared to the competition.""We're a Fortune 500 company... our licensing costs [are] in the seven figures.""We pay around 60,000 on a yearly basis.""The price can start at €10,000 ($13,000 USD) for between 500 and 1,000 assets, and the price can climb into the millions as more assets are added.""I use a local license to perform penetration testing and I'm pretty happy with everything when it comes to pricing and licensing."

Top Answer: Honestly, I love this solution. As of now, although I have a minimum amount of experience with this solution, Skybox has been great.

Top Answer: I'm pretty happy with it, but I do see a lot of stuff coming out about risk-based vulnerability management. And so I've been looking at that. I don't think we're using that as of yet and it seems like… more »
