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…

It helps reduce the complexity of the firewall rule set, but we need the end-to-end mapping feature working

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case is optimizing firewall rules.

Pros and Cons

  • "It gives us the ability to go to one place to look for potential firewall rules that are inappropriate, or which don't meet compliance. Instead of manually searching hundreds of firewalls for a policy, we can go to this one location and find the rules which are now out of compliance."
  • "The AWS integration is still not mature for us to use. It is just not ready for our use case for AWS connectivity. Therefore, it does not provide us with a single pane of glass for our cloud environments, because we can't manage our cloud environment with the tool."

What other advice do I have?

Each deployment scenario will be unique. A robust proof of concept is key to make sure it will meet all of your intended use cases. The solution is managing 25 percent of our firewalls right now. We probably won't increase usage until we can get the required features for firewall change rule management to work correctly. We probably will not increase usage until that works. I would rate it as a six (out of ten). We need the end-to-end mapping feature working to make it a ten. That is just our next phase. I don't know what other problems that we will run into. There is a lot to deploy before we…

AlgoBot checks if rules already exist or finds out easily where they need to be configured

What is our primary use case?

Our main use cases for this solution are: * Firewall Rule optimization * Topology mapping of various firewalls * Automating the implementation of rules. * Reports warning before time based rules expire. We also implemented the AlgoBot, which is extremely useful when checking if rules already exist or finding out easily where they need to be configured. We have 20-plus firewalls from multi-vendors in several sites, both IT and OT. Therefore, an automated way to manage firewalls is a must, especially since staff is always on the short side.

Pros and Cons

  • "AlgoBot is a brilliantly, simple idea that lets us give our IT internal customers a way to check if rules are already in place before asking for more."
  • "The license rekeying needed for when you need to change a firewall usually takes a bit of time."
