The industry’s most advanced and accurate vulnerability management

The Skybox Vulnerability and Threat Management Solution calculates the industry’s most accurate risk score by combining five critical variables. The Skybox risk score is tailored to each customer’s unique business logic and risk profile.

1) Exploitability – Skybox Research Lab, the company’s threat intelligence division, continuously tracks and analyzes vulnerabilities on thousands of products, along with the latest data on exploits and malware taking advantage of these vulnerabilities. Drawing on this research, the Skybox analysts identify the vulnerabilities most likely to impact customers’ networks and assets.

2) Exposure analysis – Attack path analysis uniquely identifies exploitable vulnerabilities and correlates them with customers’ specific network configurations and security controls to identify exposed vulnerabilities. Skybox can even identify non-exploitable vulnerabilities that pose a high risk due to a directly accessible or business-critical asset.

3) Asset importance – Skybox provides a more comprehensive view of an organization’s attack surface, including unknowns that traditional vulnerability scanners miss. It enables customers to see all assets through API integrations with existing tools, and identify the scope of vulnerabilities alongside security control gaps. Then, to accurately assess the severity of vulnerabilities and prioritize and remediate risk, the Skybox algorithm determines if the vulnerability exists on a mission-critical asset.

4) Cyber risk quantification – This new financial calculation enables customers to identify and prioritize the most critical threats based on the size of economic impact. CISOs can target mitigation strategies on the most significant risks based on the potential financial consequences to their business.

5) Severity – Regardless of the CVSS base score, Skybox automatically assigns exposed vulnerabilities a higher risk score. This allows organizations to go one step further into prioritization. For example, a CVSS 10 vulnerability with no exploit can be fixed after a vulnerability with the same CVSS value that is being actively exploited by common malware.

For full lifecycle vulnerability management, Skybox Security automatically identifies the most effective remediation options – including network-based compensating controls to supplement patches and software updates for a defense-in-depth approach. Then, the Skybox network model validates if risks are mitigated.

Only this comprehensive view of exposure across IT, operational technology, and cloud environments can uncover the most dangerous vulnerabilities before attackers exploit them. Through our industry-leading understanding of assets that are exposed and how they are connected via our network modeling technology, we enable customers to prioritize the most likely exploited vulnerabilities and pinpoint remediation options that reduce the most risk. Skybox Security delivers a foundation for improving any security program, especially when customers have to protect environments of growing complexity."
