With the combination of the vulnerability management database and third-party integration, vulnerability management is very rich. When you add the network model, Skybox can tell you exactly which vulnerabilities in the infrastructure are exploitable. I have seen examples where there are 7,000 vulnerabilities exposed at one time. This includes highlighting things that are open, or exposed. View full review »

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 little to no idea of how to actually secure a firewall correctly. Using Skybox, when we bring them on we take a look at how their firewalls are configured and then make recommendations as far as what they need to do to tighten it up. That is the main function we've been using it for and that is where we have gotten the most benefit out of it. From Firewall Assurance, the only other real benefit you get is eliminating shadowed rules and redundant rules. You can optimize a little bit based on real usage to move the rules that are used more towards the top of the access lists so that the firewall processes them a little faster. It's a small benefit but it's definitely something that, depending on your business, may be important to you. View full review »

When we are adding new users to the network it has an impact on the security posture of the organization. So we use this product to do analysis, what kind of impact it will have on the security. What are the particular applications which may be required in terms of access controls, what are the changes, what are the policies we should put on the firewall? And in case we need to have a temporary policy, we can then revert back to the original one. All of these things have really helped us improve the security and network systems. View full review »
