If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Skybox Security Suite, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
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 solution a seven out of ten.
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.
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.
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 proof of concept. In general, I'd recommend the product.
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 into the product properly before they implement it. I rate this product at about seven out of ten. The product is good but pricing and technical support are the ones which take marks off.
Educate other IT teams about its value.
I really like the product. I do not have the experience with its competitors, either in function or pricing. It is a very useful tool, especially for those who do not have access to the devices they are monitoring. Because of separation of duties, you often do not have access to the firewalls or network devices. This type of tool does a great job of reaching into those other devices producing risk recommendations, compliance recommendations, and a single plane of glass to do your queries, so you can find where these rules might exist.
* Determine what your needs are. * Buy only the products you need, when you need them. * Make sure that your sales engineer goes over best practices with you so that you do it right the first time.
