Skybox Security has been named a JMP Securities 2022 Elite 80, an annual list of the “hottest privately held cybersecurity & IT infrastructure companies.” In this new report by leading financial services firm JMP Securities, the analysts highlight the most interesting and strategically positioned private companies.
JMP researchers create the list by identifying companies that release new product innovations, respond to changing technology, and continually demonstrate a strong operational foundation and sustainable technological differentiation.
According to the report: “The profound changes in the way society uses technology and the rapid advancement in the technologies have significantly bolstered the viability of nimble and adaptive privately held companies. Accordingly, we believe the Elite 80 represents not only a compendium of the technology leaders in their respective markets but the future titans of the IT infrastructure and cybersecurity markets.”
A new path forward for breach prevention
Increasingly dangerous vulnerabilities, including but not limited to Log4j, require a new focus on preventing breaches by eliminating cyber exposure ahead of an attack. In early 2022, Skybox Security reported the strongest quarter in our company’s 19-year history, driven by global customer demand for the industry’s most advanced exposure analysis, risk scoring, automation, and vulnerability management capabilities.
Security Posture Management market leadership
To quote the Elite 80 Report: “Skybox is a leading provider of security posture management solutions. The company’s platform enables enterprises and governments to maintain compliance, reduce cyber exposure, minimize business risk, and prevent breaches. It allows for firewall management, threat and vulnerability management, and compliance monitoring to provide full context and understanding of the attack surface. The end result is a powerful visualization of all network elements across disparate environments including hybrid, multi-cloud, and OT while providing an understanding of the rules and configurations.
The Skybox platform combines network device and firewall data with threat and vulnerability intelligence, which allows customers to prioritize threats by level of importance and better visualize the overall landscape of the attack surface. The company’s Security Posture Management Platform is comprised of two core solutions:
- Security Policy Management, which collects, normalizes, and optimizes security data for comprehensive visibility, control, and insights
- Vulnerability and Threat Management, which discovers vulnerabilities, prioritizes them based on exposure-based risk scores, and generates prescriptive remediation options.”
