Skybox Security, the leader in proactive security risk management solutions, announced today that Skybox Risk Control 6.5 has been awarded Best Security Management by the 2013 SC Magazine Awards Europe.
According to SC Magazine Awards Europe, the products within the Best Security Management category provide high-level controls for risk assessment and risk analysis, identify threats, rate enterprise vulnerabilities to threats and implement controls.
Traditional security management tools are often reactive, used infrequently, or disruptive to the business – resulting in too much information, way too late, with no context or priorities. Skybox Risk Control is the first integrated security risk management solution that combines capabilities to discover vulnerabilities continuously, automatically prioritize risks in the context of the network and existing security controls, and drive remediation activities. This enables security teams to systematically reduce risks posed by exploitable vulnerabilities ahead of cyber attacks, and therefore prevent major disruption to core business services or theft of confidential information.
Recently Skybox introduced the Vulnerability Detector capability in Risk Control, adding non-disruptive or “scanless” vulnerability assessment to derive an accurate list of cyber exposures continuously, without an active scan. This innovation allows Risk Control customers to have a continuously updated view of their vulnerabilities, and to drive pre-emptive remediation of risks in a threat environment that changes constantly.
“This coveted recognition is a true testament to the philosophy that security professionals need sophisticated analytic solutions that give them the power to combat sophisticated cyber threats,” said Gidi Cohen, CEO at Skybox Security. “We are honored that Skybox Risk Control has been recognized as the wise choice for Best Security Management by SC Magazine Europe.”
