Skybox Security Change Manager

Reduce firewall errors and slash management costs by more than 80%
Firewalls require constant maintenance to ensure that they are configured for optimal security, continuous compliance, and high performance.  Manual firewall analysis is a headache for most organizations. Auditing multiple firewalls or large firewall rulesetsis time-consuming and prone to errors that can leave an organization exposed to cyber threats and compliance risks.Skybox Security provides organizations with tools to automate the daily tasks associated with firewall management. Skybox imports firewall configuration data from Checkpoint, Cisco, Fortinet, Juniper, Palo Alto and other firewall vendors and normalizes the data for easy analysis. With Skybox solutions, network managers can automatically create comprehensive firewall audit reports, shepherd firewall change requests through the internal process, and optimize firewalls for best performance.Automating firewall management tasks can reduce IT costs substantially, often as much as $3,000 to $6,000 per firewall, per year.  For a company with 50 firewalls to manage that can easily translate into hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings annually, allowing highly-skilled IT staff to concentrate on strategic security management tasks.On-demand firewall audits in minutes

Continuously protect customer credit card information with PCI Compliance

Hackers are unrelenting in their pursuit of credit card information and customer’s personal data. Any company that processes, stores, or transmits credit card information must be PCI DSS compliant or risk losing its ability to process credit card payments. With Skybox, credit card processing organizations now have the tools to continuously audit their firewall configurations and run risk assessment tests to keep cyber criminals at bay.

Satisfy third-party audit requirements

The PCI DSS standard requires policy compliance from all network components including security controls, firewalls, routers, network appliances, and servers. WithSkybox, organizations are able to automatically audit all network components within hours and generate reports to document compliance status.

Demonstrate on-going firewall change assurance

Skybox automates and documents the change assurance workflow from the receipt of a change request to post-deployment validation. We import the configurations of hundreds of firewalls and each of their hundreds of rules and ensure that both are always configured according to the required policy.

Prove compensating controls mitigate potential risk exposures

The vast majority of open vulnerabilities don’t have to be patched immediately to maintain security and compliance.  Compensating controls like network segmentation, firewall configurations or IPS signatures can mitigate risk exposure.  Skybox’s solutions can demonstrate to auditors that compensating controls are in place, reducing your audit scope and compliance costs.

Skybox Security solutions provide companies in retail, banking, travel and entertainment services and telecommunications services, the ability to automatically address many of the challenges posed by the PCI DSS standard. With Skybox, every organization that touches credit card transactions is are able to stay steps ahead of hackers seeking to steal their customer’s valuable data.


Eliminate potential risk exposures before a data breach or attack

Effective cyber security programs are laser-focused on finding and eliminating IT security threats – before an incident happens.  But identifying all security risks proactively and systematically in a large network is like looking for a needle in a stack of needles.  So how do you stay ahead of evolving cyber threats?

Skybox Security provides organizations with tools that automate daily tasks for IT security risk management.  With Skybox solutions, network managers can maintain a comprehensive view of the network, find and prioritize risks fast, and validate network changes before they are made.  No wonder that Skybox is the leading proactive security risk management solution for Global 2000 organizations.

Integrated Vulnerability Detection, Risk Assessment and Remediation Enables Same-Day Resolution of Critical Risk Exposures

The Skybox vulnerability management solution is based on Skybox Risk Control.  Our innovative approach links scanless vulnerability assessment, context-aware risk analysis, and remediation planning, to resolve vulnerabilities more than 50 times faster than traditional vulnerability management processes.

  • Resolve critical risks in hours – Automated vulnerability management process takes you from discovery to remediation in hours
  • Get actionable recommendations –  Turn vulnerability intelligence into prioritized and specific remediation tasks so you can act quickly to eliminate attack vectors
  • Track progress on SLAs – Remediation dashboard allows you to track progress to reduce vulnerability levels and remediation time
  • No scan disruption – Scanless vulnerability assessment uses analytics to find vulnerabilities without a scan, or combines data from any vulnerability scanner
  • Near-zero false positives – Context-aware analytics eliminate irrelevant data and deliver accurate vulnerability intelligence with almost zero false positives

Scanless Vulnerability Assessment

Skybox eliminates the disruption and long scanning cycles associated with active vulnerability scanners with Vulnerability Detector, an innovative vulnerability assessment tool  that uses analytics to generate vulnerabilities without touching every node. Vulnerability Detector analyzes data repositories available in every enterprise – typically patch management and asset management systems – to automatically and accurately generate vulnerability data without an active scan.

Accurate Vulnerability Prioritization

The Skybox vulnerability management solution performs a context-aware analysis to find vulnerability hot spots and map them to business units or geographies, vendor platforms, security bulletins and more. Skybox identifies attack vectors, taking into network access paths, compensating security controls such as firewalls and IPS, and risk to valuable assets.
