Defending against a new age of cyberthreats
After nearly 20 years in the cybersecurity industry, I've seen network threats and vulnerabilities grow from local to a global scale – and modest to critical in impact. Due in part to digital transformation, cloud migration, and IT/OT convergence, today's security professionals face the most complex, sophisticated threats ever seen in the digital age.
With our Security Posture Management Platform, Skybox has become a trusted partner to over 500 of the world's most security-conscious companies. We provide visibility into threats that lie within their fragmented hybrid networks, security controls, and change management processes. And we deliver the insights they need to choose the most optimal remediation strategy. With Skybox, our customers can focus on the most strategic business initiatives while ensuring their business remains protected.
Many people in the industry said we couldn't achieve what we set out to do – that it wasn't possible. We have proven them wrong. In the same way Google Maps allows users to understand their terrain, location, and how to interpret traffic lights, we are helping large companies make sense of their complex, modern infrastructure.
Our mission is to provide CISOs, CIOs, and their teams with the intelligence and context to make informed security decisions. We are honored to be recognized as a near-term disruptor with the size and scale to become the market winner in our space.
