What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is firewall management. It is excellent. It works by onboarding different firewall vendors and together with network assurance, builds a complete network model. Vulnerability management is very good and it has its… more »

How has it helped my organization?

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… more »

What needs improvement?

The Network Assurance, which helps to create the network model, is not so rich. It tells you the best part, and it gives you the alternate routes that are available based on the configuration and the routing table, but it doesn't give you… more »

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is implementing this product is to make sure that they utilize it. The usage of it should be mandated for the NOC and SOC. They should use a single dashboard to take care of all of your infrastructure components… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have been evaluating other options including RedSeal, AlgoSec, Tufin, and FireMon. Each vendor has its own strengths and weaknesses. I think that the network modeling capability in RedSeal is far ahead of the rest. Also, in terms of… more »

What is most valuable?

Change Manager is most important because of the impact on each other of a network change or a firewall change. We want to understand this and to know, beforehand, what the… more »

How has it helped my organization?

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… more »

What needs improvement?

We really need to see how it can help us with cloud connectivity. It's there but I think it could give us a far better visualization.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing is on the higher side. In terms of licensing, you should buy the complete suite rather than buying only the Change Manager. I think Change Manager with… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We were not using any solution before this one.

What other advice do I have?

Anyone implementing this product should bring together the teams which have security and network understanding, as a part of the project and, of course, they should look… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did evaluate other products, including Tufin, but we chose this one.

What is most valuable?

The port division management was the solution's most valuable aspect for our organization.

What needs improvement?

The solution was quite technical. It would be easier to manage if the solution was more specific about certain aspects and provided more advisory around how to use it effectively. It would help users a lot if they were more clear about everything. The solution requires more integration in terms of… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We've since moved from Skybox to another solution, therefore, we aren't using it anymore. About four to six months ago, we migrated from Skybox to another tool called AlgoSec.

What other advice do I have?

I'd advise other companies to scan the solution from time to time and be mindful of it. It's also important to make sure the services of the tool are enabled for the actions a company will need to handle or monitor. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The solution's simplicity of use is its most valuable feature.

What needs improvement?

The solution needs more detailed reporting. In Skybox the reporting is good, but it could be improved. The solution needs to add more automation and orchestration capabilities. Those features would make the solution much stronger.

What other advice do I have?

We're just a customer. We're not a partner or reseller of the solution. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. I'd recommend those considering the solution to also look at Tufin and AlgoSec. I'd advise anyone considering any of these three options to compare them together and request a detailed… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did evaluate other solutions before choosing this one. In fact, I'd recommend other companies to also take a look at Tufin and AlgoSec. Evaluating each of these will help organizations pick the best solution for their needs.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are Firewall Assurance and Vulnerability Control. This solution is easy to use. This device has support for 130 vendors.

How has it helped my organization?

Our customers have not had any complaints about the Skybox Security Suite.

What needs improvement?

The most recent update was not tested with all of the vendors before it was released, so some of the features are misbehaving.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price is not expensive.

What other advice do I have?

This solution is pretty good. Our customers have found that Skybox has a lot of good features and I don't expect that any of them will be changing to another product. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

What do you think of Skybox Security Suite?

What is our primary use case?

We use it for management. Currently, around 10 users are using it in my organization.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Skybox Security Suite for one year. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable. Stability-wise, I would give it an eight out of ten.

The initial setup was straightforward.
