What is most valuable?

The Vulnerability Management module is among the ones we talk about the most and the one that customers are biting off on quite a bit. Skybox, in general, has quite a few features that are particularly useful to large clients, but their... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Specifically, in the Vulnerability Management piece, vulnerability management products are very noisy and they provide this arbitrary score called the CVSS that rates the criticality of the vulnerability. How bad would it be if somebody were... more»

What needs improvement?

The only place where Skybox has room for improvement, and they're working on releasing this, it's just a slow-go, is the UI. The user interface has historically been via a locally installed thick client. They are moving to a web-based console... more»

What is most valuable?

For us, it's more important for our firewalls, to maintain the configuration compliance, to look at duplication of rules; clean up functionalities on the firewall and compliance of the firewall. That's where it's most important. We're still... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It's given us more visibility in terms of what are the kinds of configurations that are on these devices, and how many of these are stale rules. So it's helped greatly in terms of cleaning up of rules, for sure. And it has definitely given a... more»

What needs improvement?

The primary room for improvement would be to enable a web interface, which is not something which is there in the product. This is supposed to have come a year, a year and a half ago, but still has failed to come out. It still needs a client... more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the compliance, whether it's access compliance or the configuration compliance, to make sure that all of our devices are configured as they're supposed to be, to limit access as much possible, to follow... more»

How has it helped my organization?

What we have done is found a lot of misconfigured stuff on firewalls. Our company, Verisk, is a company that buys other companies. We have 70 or so companies at last count and most of them are founder-based companies we bought. They had... more»

What needs improvement?

Reporting. A lot of the reports, out of the box, are limited to a certain number of either configuration violations or access rule violations. So when you first set up a new firewall to be monitored by Skybox, you don't get a real full... more»

What is most valuable?

It's the firewall change audit every week. Also, being able to track firewall ACL usage, so that we can produce semiannual reports on ACL usage and on shadowed and redundant rules on the firewall.

How has it helped my organization?

It has automated things. What was a manual process is now just running a report and delivering it to the people who have to mitigate the issues. A better workflow.

What needs improvement?

It's tough to say, because the areas of improvement, I understand the difficulty. For example, they pull configs from thousands of types of devices, and it's difficult for them to stay on top of when vendors change the way their commands... more»

What is most valuable?

Network path analysis is the most valuable feature. There is a lot of work in my team to support internal and external customers, to answer their questions and difficulties with connectivity that doesn’t work. Mostly, the problem is missing... more»

How has it helped my organization?

This is something we are on the way to doing.

What needs improvement?

At the moment we have a lot of work in implementing the tool in our workflow, so we are not looking for new features. But this could change in the next six to 12 months.

With proven scalability in 1,500+ firewall deployments, Firewall Assurance keeps rules optimized and ensures changes don’t introduce new risk. 

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.
