Skybox Security Suite Primary Use Case

Randy Watkins
Director, Security Architecture at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
We have been reselling Skybox for probably about five years now, so I'm pretty familiar with it. I've done numerous POCs and I've had hands-on with it quite a bit. Because I get to work with a bunch of different customers, I get to see just about every use case for Skybox. The first one, which is pretty simple, is auditing firewall rule sets; taking a look at all the configurations that are on the firewalls and ensuring that they're locked down. What we run into a lot of times are firewalls that are set up with excessive permissions, meaning they allow a lot more traffic than they should. Skybox is essential to tearing that down. Network visibility is another big use case, learning where all the assets are located on the network and how they can talk to each other. The last one that I deal with quite a bit is the vulnerability/exposure-monitoring piece. Looking at those vulnerabilities that are on the network, providing the context of network-based mitigation, and then reprioritizing or recasting those vulnerabilities. View full review »
