Rich vulnerability management that is controlled from a single pane of glass, but the network modeling capability needs improvement

What is our primary use case?

We are a system integrator and this is one of the products that we implement for our clients. This is one of the vendors that we focus on, from a security standpoint. Skybox has an amazing portfolio that makes up the security solution. You can onboard your network devices with the network assurance module. This includes layer three, layer two switches, load balancers, and so on. This partially builds the network model for the infrastructure and the entire security platform is built off of that.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is firewall management."
  • "The Network Assurance, which helps to create the network model, is not so rich."

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. When a Skybox representative visits to discuss this solution, it is important to discuss the use cases properly. Have a good project plan and it is also very important to have the right partner. They should be certified, trained, and involved at all stages. Overall, it is a pretty good product. When you use it, you will see the benefit of it. I would rate this…

Good at identifying vulnerabilities but had issues with scans and endpoint accuracy

What is our primary use case?

The solution is primarily used for vulnerability management, specifically vulnerability scanning of the endpoint devices.

Pros and Cons

  • "The main functionality of identifying item endpoints that weren't properly patched or had vulnerabilities is the solution's most valuable feature."
  • "We found that after you passed an endpoint, it didn't always reflect it in the next scan. I'm not sure if it was a glitch or some issue with the product's software. That was never clear. That was always an issue and something that definitely needed improvement."

What other advice do I have?

The company I worked for was just a customer and I was just an end-user. There was no business relationship between the two companies that I was aware of. The company is considering moving from on-premises to the cloud. I am unsure of which version of the solution is being used currently. I'm no longer at the company where I used the product. While the solution worked well, I have never compared other solutions, so I don't know if it's best in class or not. I'd rate the solution six out of ten.

Easy to use and scalable but needs to be priced more competitively

What is our primary use case?

We're primarily using the solution for vulnerability assessment of internal server as well as the external server.

Pros and Cons

  • "It is very easy to use and there are lots of options. We can usually easily go through it and all of the things we want to configure, and we can configure everything to our specifications very easily."
  • "Sometimes we face a problem with accessing the tool and not getting an expected result. From a technology point of view, they need to look into this."

What other advice do I have?

We are a Qualys customer. We aren't a reseller or partner. Overall I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. We are currently looking at other options, to see if there's a better solution out there. This one has pretty good technical support and is easy to use, however, there are other issues associated with it.
